Man Power

Man PowerMet this cyclist during the L.A. Fun Ride.  I had never seen such a bike, and while other cyclist gathered around to hear him proudly talked about it, he gladly said it was okay for me to take his picture.

Note: my bike is the blue one in the background, above his right shoulder.

I thought he was crazy for riding it on the street for 32 miles, but he swore it was fast, light and easy to maneuver.  Okay.  I walked away shaking my head.

Then during the last leg, while climbing up Westholme, I heard a strange sound approaching from behind.  Sure enough it was this crazy guy.  He flew past me without a heavy breath.

Goes to prove, you can’t judge a bike by it’s tires and frame.  Clearly this one had the heart of a lion.
