Midnight Ride (with lasers)

23 06 2013

What better way to spend the few fleeting hours of darkness of the shortest night of the year, than to ride the night away with a big group of fellow cyclists, with a portable sound system and laser light show.

It's like a bicycle disco.

Before the ride, participants pimped out their steeds with all sorts of lights.

Oh The Things That You’ll Find…

11 06 2010

Oh, the things that you’ll find when you’re riding!

Sheer genius on my companion's behalf.

Hooray for people who make fun things and place them to surprise curious alley-rollers!

Pylons for pedal power!

What treasure will be in the next nook or cranny?
