A SERIOUS, TWO-DAY CASE OF MONOCHROMITIS

Oh yeah, Monochromitis is a very real medical condition.  The Harvard Journal of Diseases & Stuff defines it this way: “A psychological disorder in which a person – usually a bicycle rider – compulsively searches for items of similar color for the sole purpose of taking a photograph.  His or her obsession is so powerful … Continue reading "A SERIOUS, TWO-DAY CASE OF MONOCHROMITIS"

Monochrome – Straw

Yesterday’s trip out was a bit of a failure on the monthly challenge front, the photo’s I took were disappointing. Whilst out walking last evening I came across somewhere I thought might be worth visiting with bike and camera. Distance – 9 miles. Journey – Solo. Bike – Dawes Galaxy. Post Views: 17 DJG

July Challenge – Some monochrome without a chromoly frame

The weather was warm – unseasonably so. It would have been a great weekend for a two-day ride. I would love to say I did an ovenight ride in mid-winter! So I tried to think of a way I could still manage that given I am quite unwell at the moment. But there was just … Continue reading "July Challenge – Some monochrome without a chromoly frame"

The July challenge: hogging the bandwidth

So Rodriguez and I didn’t use up all of the visible spectrum yesterday, but we certainly grabbed our share.  We got a bit carried away when Suzanne pettifogged over my posting of someone else’s bicycle in my first submission.  She’s right, annoyingly enough – I did state that you needed to pose with YOUR bike … Continue reading "The July challenge: hogging the bandwidth"

Tioga Pass, part 1

Tioga Road across the Sierra through Yosemite National Park is one of the most spectacular high mountain routes (up to nearly 10,000 feet) in the US. But all the usual reasons—narrow lanes, lack of shoulders, curves, climbs, heavy traffic, lumbering RVs, inattentive drivers—make it a dicey proposition under normal circumstances. Consequently, bicyclists love the opportunity … Continue reading "Tioga Pass, part 1"

Glacial Erratics … and some new and old things

Tuesday June 25, 2019 … It felt like anything but glacial on the day we joined the local chapter of the ADFC or German Biycle Club for their weekly Tuesday afternoon ride. The blazing sun brought the temperatures up to a sweltering 32°C/90°F. Nevertheless, nine brave cyclists showed up for the outing. The program was … Continue reading "Glacial Erratics … and some new and old things"

Challenge of the month: July 2019

Well, it seemed to work fine last month posting the challenge a few days early so people can put their thinking caps on.  I didn’t see any early entries, so people apparently weren’t confused.  Congratulations, and don’t forget we’ve still got a few days left to squeeze in that perfect old/new photo. What may not … Continue reading "Challenge of the month: July 2019"

Old And New For Those Who Enjoy A Little Recreational Grass Now And Then

I was riding my bike around today with no Cycle365 intentions whatsoever.  It was just a regular ride–like I do almost every day.  ALMOST every day.  For those of you keeping a tally of the number of days I’ve not ridden since making my “ride-every-single-day-in-2019” New Year’s resolution, you’re going to have to start a … Continue reading "Old And New For Those Who Enjoy A Little Recreational Grass Now And Then"
