Friday challenge: who dares to post a picture of himself ?PeterRider

Bike related of course, but if possible not one with full helmet/sunglasses/suncream & co where you cannot recognize even your brother.

Below: that's my ugly mug after ~100 miles and 11,000ft climbing, wondering if I have enough time to climb to Mt Wilson before sunset.

You remind me of a bike nut from the days of yore that we always called "Naked Steve."

He always attended parties nude, and was notorious for collaborating with a photographer - of taking very ordinary photos, like of a family on a picnic in the park while he was prancing around in the buff in the background. Hilarious stuff.

but plenty of beer and darts at Lucky Baldwin's in Pasadena. By this time the combination of Belgian tripels and sharp pointy objects had people running for cover every time I picked up the darts. If you like good beer and ever happen to be in Pasadena, I'd strongly recommend Baldwin's. The food is damn good too, especially the chicken curry. Plus the owner is a hell of a nice guy.

I was there with a beer group last weekend. In light of our prodigious consumption, the owner dropped some surprises on us. In addition to an on-the-house 3-liter bottle of Corsendonck Brown Ale, he broke out some cellared bottles of de Ranke beers, including XX Bitter and Pere Noel. It's all served at proper temperature in proper glassware. He's a real beer-lover and it shows.

For some reason, they are not on my harddrive - only on the CD you burned for me. I added my photoes to the same CD.

Oh well, I like the photo of Liz and I better anyway. That day, I got home at about 1pm from a 70-80 miler, quickly took a shower, put on some clothes, and had to run out the door. So instead of a "ride" photo, it is a post-ride photo.

Harold: How was Italy?? Did you bring the bike?? And how's "your" pregnancy coming along??

Nothing happening here bicycling wise other than me trying to get to 4000 miles (6500K) by yearend. I'm somewhere around 3800 miles. I'm not sure of the exact mileage since I went computerless in Feb/March of this year. Are you going to do the NC ride this coming summer?? If not, you are welcome to drive south and join some friends and I on a 4-5 day Natchez trace tour. We're planning to ride about 100 miles/day and camp at night. Let me know. Paul
