Ride With Lance Armstrong Video

Here’s a short video I made from this past Thursday’s ride in Griffith Park. I’m using a VIO POV1 mounted to my helmet.

I saw Lance for probably a total of 2 seconds, maybe 3. After the loop we rode some dirt roads out of Griffith Park and then headed into work. I’m on my Surly LHT and my friend Bruce is on his Rivendell Bleriot. I can’t figure out how to allow the video to play here, so click the video and it will play from my smugmug. Enjoy.


Labor Of Love Car Show

My friend Marcos and his car club held their car show this weekend. I hadn’t been to a car show in quite some time. Mostly due to riding bicycles. I was looking forward to seeing some cool rides, and I wasn’t dissapointed. Here are just a few photos.

I’m a sucker for wagons. This one was very cool. I wish my commuter was this nice.

Another wagon. This car comes to the regular meet. It’s my favorite one.

Car guys always come across cool things. This guy was riding around on this bike. He told me it was a dumpster find. It was an AMF Hercules. Appeared to be made in England, but rebadged as an AMF.

It had a Sturmey Archer 3-speed hub.

The car show was fun, but the bike was my favorite thing. Funny how that happens.
