A Few Views from My Handlebars

It has been magnificently autumnal these past few days. Crisp and chilly air, and great weather to ride a bike in (you don’t sweat). Anyhow these photos were taken yesterday and today; all while I was out doing errands. They were also taken with my little $99 point-and-shoot camera which fits so nicely in myContinue reading “A Few Views from My Handlebars”

(another) View from my handlebars…

Dusk and dawn…my two favorite times of the day. It was unseasonably warm today…79F/26C…and it was such a lovely night to be on a bicycle and use it as transportation. This photo was taken about 6:30pm looking east. To see other views, click here. Urban Simplicity.

Big Sky…a vew from my handlebars

I was at the corner of Delaware and Summer Street this evening when I stopped my bike to take this photo. I was on my way to the health club and was so taken by the seen before me I pulled over to the side of the road and snapped a couple pictures (and toContinue reading “Big Sky…a vew from my handlebars”

A view from my handlebars…and a brief comment

I was on my way home this evening and stopped to snap this photo. I love the autumn and was so taken by this scene I literally stopped in the middle of the street and snapped a few photos. And I’ve stated many times, one of the many things I enjoy about being on aContinue reading “A view from my handlebars…and a brief comment”

The View from My Handlebars…

It’s starting to get dark earlier as the season progresses. I worked a split shift today. The kitchen was hot but not crazy-hot. But still it felt good to get out and hop on a bike in the fresh air for my short commute home. On my ride, and when I took these photos, itContinue reading “The View from My Handlebars…”

The View from My Handlebars, the Lunatic Behind me, and a few Thoughts on Article 34

So there I was at the corner of Allen and Franklin Streets waiting for the light to change so I could make a left hand turn. It was already balmy. I had a bucket of just-mixed raw bread dough on my front rack (pictured above), which I bake at work during the hot weather soContinue reading “The View from My Handlebars, the Lunatic Behind me, and a few Thoughts on Article 34”

The View from My Handlebars…six photos of buildings and sky

I’ve mentioned this before but I will again. I find it interesting when on a bike how keenly aware you are of the weather (how could you not be). Last week, for example, we had a mini-heatwave and I was conscious of being a sweaty mess wherever I pedaled. Today, though, was just lovely…I knowContinue reading “The View from My Handlebars…six photos of buildings and sky”

Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#449), a View from My Handlebars, and a Couple Comments

(above photo) A nylon gym bag full of wet clothes, and a BikeRev trailer containing slightly more than $50 in groceries. (below photo) I was on my way home this evening from the health club and grocery store and the weather was just perfect…not-too-hot, not-too-cool, brilliant sun, and not a cloud in the sky. AfterContinue reading “Things That Can be Carried on a Bike (#449), a View from My Handlebars, and a Couple Comments”

Two Views from my Handlebars

These are two views from my handlebars. The above is in the morning–facing eastward–on my short commute to work, and the below image is in the late afternoon on my way home, facing westward. Both images are on Allen Street in Allentown; the neighborhood in which I both live and work. I enjoy riding aContinue reading “Two Views from my Handlebars”

Another View from my Handlebars

Beautiful isn’t? Inspiring to say the least. I pass this intersection a few times a week and am always inspired by this beautiful church. Tonight, as it drizzled and sleeted lightly as I rode by, I thought I’d stop and snap a couple pictures. It’s First Presbyterian Church at Symphony Circle. And as I stoodContinue reading “Another View from my Handlebars”
