Bike to Work Week!

Today marks the beginning of Flagstaff's Bike to Work Week, so FBO, as with every year, set up a bike swap/bazaar downtown in Heritage Square, as well as the bike parade. Lots of people, lots of bikes, and Exegete, TC, and I were there with our jolly rogers, as well as one of my friends from work. Sadly, she was without a flag.


The bike swap in heritage square...


I got a great deal on a frameset... I had to get it home somehow. Henry the Pack Mule lives up to his name!

Staging for the parade in front of the library... there were lots of interesting bikes, like these, which had eccentric rear wheels. You basically jump on the platform to propel them.


Another eccentric bike...

Ape hangers!


Pirate bikes... Yarr. We got plenty of comments on the flags.


The crowd gathers...


And gathers...


And we're off!




Yarr!


Mileage: 10.9

Yup, great weather, if a bit windy. Mid-upper seventies every day. And yea, I was the picture taker. It's easy to stay out of the pictures when you're hiding behind the camera.
