    A bee swarm Passion.

    According to Sonya Looney, Judy Freemans bike was very attractive to a queen--and a swarm of bees-- after the Front Range 60 race. This is easily a caption contest entry but is an amazing scene anyway.

    That's what you get for sticking strips of Power Bar on your top tube

    I'm still wondering why she has no pedal(s)!?!?!?!

    But for a race, all you need is a straw and and an epi-pen..... but you would be fully fueled for an endurance race.

    I don't think that's a rusty chain... I think it's gold colored TI-Nitrate

    There were no pedals on the bike because it's for sale. The bees are covering the for sale sign!

    I would have to sell the thing after that happened. I used to be deathly allergic to bees, and probably would never get on the bike again were that to happen to me.

    Grats and nice job on the race!

    Thats cool, I have "transplanted" several swarms to hives and those hives are giving good honey and they are not aggressive at all, when the bees swarm they are pretty cool, you can do whatever you want with them, including trapping them in a plastic bag for transplant.

    Bees are nice.
