SPECIAL REPORT: Czar Issues the July Challenge

Hi folks, Czar Greg here, and today I am pleased to announce my very first monthly challenge. I am confident you will find it to be fun, interesting, and — most importantly — goofy.

So, without further fanfare, here is the challenge:

Ride your bike down to your local river and take a video of a group of vultures inhabiting a viewing platform. Move closer to the vultures, and when they fly away, focus your camera on a bald eagle up in a tree and wait for it to fly away and scoop a fish out of the river. Finally, pan the camera over to your bike and wait for the eagle to circle around past the bike.

It’s as simple as that! Here’s an example of the type of video I’ll be looking for:

So you’ve got from July 1st to July 31st to post as many such videos as you want.

Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.
