You can purchase coloring books through my online shop at http://FlyingSnailCreations.com or this weekend at BikeCraft! Cheers
My latest book, Bike Parade Vol 3, will finally be available for purchase at Books with Pictures on Division. Join me this Saturday, December 2 at Noon to color some pages and pick up your own copy for the kids, yourself, or as a holiday gift. If you can’t make it then you’ll find me at BikeCraft on December 15-17. I’ll have all three of my coloring books for sale along with original prints.
I finally rode the Oregon Stampede route. It has been many months since I’ve pedaled any sort of distance above 30 miles in a day, on gravel, in 95+ blazing sunshine. It hurt like a mofo, but it was oh-so-satisfying.
This is a typical day of commuting on Williams in NE Portland. I saw a few cyclists ahead of me, but as I checked over my shoulder I was astounded at the number of cyclists still coming up the road. It’s difficult to capture the true number of cyclists that use this route. Probably in the thousands per day, no doubt.
Finally some sun at Mt Tabor during the bike races. It made for some interesting lighting, but still not quite ideal for the shots I want.
Racing season on Mt Tabor has started, but the lighting for sport photography wasn’t the greatest. It’s challenging to capture the movement in such low light without using a flash.
We spent our Saturday riding the mountain bike trails at Alsea Falls just Southwest of Corvallis. The weather, trails, and flow were all perfect.
Morning coffee in the park, talking about bikes, admiring bikes, eating donuts, and taking photos of bikes. Because bikes.
I don’t know what a “sloak” is, but I am getting my Salsa Timberjack ready for summer adventures.
Good morning Portland. Starting my day off right with other bike nerds, coffee, and donuts in some rare Portland sun.
Springing in Springtime Portland. Been a while since I’ve ridden the Timberjack. I can hardly way for everything to dry out a little so I can get out onto the trails again.
It’s Springtime in Portland! The cherry blossoms are in bloom and will peak in the next few days. Love this time of year as everything starts growing at a crazy pace, pollen fills the air, and birds are in constant song. I’ll definitely be posting some more cherry blossom photos in the next couple of weeks as the blooms complete and the petals fall like snow. Stay tuned to this blog.
