I've lurked about on here looking at all the great pictures for a while and with my 45th birthday a month away, they've started me thinking about all of the rides I've done. So here's my last 25 years of riding in images. I just hope I've got 25 more ahead of me. Not so many pictures from the first 15 years, nor many pictures of me (I’m usually carrying the camera) but thanks to digital cameras and cell phones, there’s plenty in the last 10. So enjoy if you can and flame away if you must...
The Big 80’s:
My first ride was a Trek Antelope 830 like this one. I went through 3 of these in 3 years. Sold the 1st to pay rent, the 2nd was stolen off my deck in Vail, and I broke the frame of the 3rd. Lost a lot of skin in those 3 years as well.
Bought a Giant after a year without a bike and went through 1/2 dozen early forks on that thing, as well as some dislocated and separated shoulders. My fashion sense improved though...
