My first bike.
I'm going mountain biking today. That is an unusual thing to say in Laramie, Wyoming on the day before Thanksgiving, but it's been insanely warm and dry here this fall. Bicycling has come back into my life during the last few years as my knees continue to deteriorate, precluding higher-impact aerobic exercise like running. Plus, it's fun as hell. And challenging. In honor of November mountain biking in the Northern Rockies, I'm posting a few images of bicycles from my collection.
