Maybe they have a commuter division

Fort Boonesborough Criterium posterWhile strolling the links today I came upon Christopher Rowe’s site and this poster for an upcoming event here in the Bluegrass.

Sounds like fun, and I think the poster is nice.

How much fun would it be to show up at one of these riding an Electra Townie in long pants, bicycle-toe sneakers, an electric-yellow rain jacket, and a Bell Metro helmet complete with rear-view mirror and a flashing light clipped on the back?

About the picture atop the page

Yes, that's me, Todd Van Campen. No, I'm not wearing a helmet. Yes, I usually wear one, so please don't scold! Seriously, I endorse wearing a helmet! Pinky swear! In fact, I almost ALWAYS wear one (while riding a bike anyway). (On the other hand, if YOU don't want to wear a helmet, I have no problem with it.) I don't remember what happened on this particular day. Fortunately for all of us it makes for a less-nerdly picture. My exceptionally talented professional photographer friend Charles Bertram took this photo.



Art for art’s sake

I asked my 6-year-old son, Caleb, an avid bicyclist and artist, to draw a bike for me. I think he did a great job!
