A Line of Cyclists

Colin took this picture during Sunday’s Launceston (TAS) Tweed Ride.  The riders are on top of the Levee that protects Launceston from flooding.  The surface up there is bumpy with large gravel.  Bluey took the bumps better than Red Magnum so Colin took a more comfortable detour and waited for us to return.

There is a video of the event on my blog – ACCESSED HERE

    Nice ride! Looks like a lot of fun.
    Beautiful collie on the bridge, looked a little startled.

    What makes the whirring sound as you pedal? Im assuming the chain?

      Hi Rich. The whirring sound is the pedal assist motor. The light / camera combo is mounted quite close to it. One day I might invest in a GoPro to get away from bike noise and capture what I am saying.

      The Collie had decided all cyclists had gone past – little did it know what was coming!

      And just how much tweed do you need? ! I thought there was enough in the blog pictures but it would seem you are a difficult case. Before the next Tweed Ride I will have to hit the Op Shops to find more.

    Great B&W shot! It makes me think of the famous Dance of Death image from Bergman’s The Seventh Seal.

      I had to go to YouTube to see the scene and refresh the memory. I can see why you thought of it.

      Wow! Good call on The Seventh Seal scene, Scott.

    OH yes! That black and white is art. Sounds like a great ride.

      Thank you Nancy. I will report back to Colin how his picture was received after I B&W’d it.

    I must say, sir, you look like a regular Sean Connery in your tweed. How is your son, Indiana Jones doing?
