It certainly made my day. Until I realized it was you, I was a tad nervous about being so obvious about taking the photo. It looked like you were having a fun ride.

The girl on the folding bike is also an occasional boarder – i’ll send her the link.

@sprite – cool, you are the first person I photographed who actually was a participant in this board. Or at least the first one that I knew of….

There were a ton of cyclists out this morning in downtown. I caught a few on my phone camera.

wish I’d gotten a picture of the badass old dude in office-type clothing who I saw climbing liberty today. Made me feel lazy as I walked up the hill…

Here are a few more from recent days:

I think I got this guy the other day, too:

IMAG0299

Notice the two riders behind this guy?

IMAG0300

Got them too! They waved!

IMAG0301

Nice to catch the cyclist riding illegally in the bus lane….

IMAG0302

And on downtown sidewalks

IMAG0303

IMAG0304

Bridge crossing on the sidewalk is legal — at least it is on the OTHER sidewalk

IMAG0309

Cyclists sometimes take interesting routes. This guy was headed to the Shared Use Sidewalk at Station Square, from the trail.

IMAG0311

These guys were looking to stay ON the trail, I think.

IMAG0312

I’ll post a few more later.

That station square connection is so confusing. I never really know where to go. I stay on the sidewalk until the crosswalk near the valet now.

Just doing a dump of other photos from my phone. Seen around town, in no particular order were:

IMAG0313

IMAG0316

This was a bike cop on Fifth Avenue

IMAG0321

IMAG0320

This one’s a little too far away, but I thought I’d share it anyway.

rsprake – agreed, although i’d call it “abysmal” rather than just “confusing”, because it’s still convoluted and dangerous long after the confusion is gone.

I was organizing my flickr account and found a photo that I had not yet posted. This is from a while ago…

The City has been crazy with bikes the past few days:

PediCabs count, don’t they?

IMAG0335

Missed a shot of another Pedicab, but caught a cyclist near the Convention Center:

IMAG0336

Hard to tell from this shot, but this guy was wearing camo pants — just outside the NRA convention. I think it was coincidental:

IMAG0337

Suburban rider, enjoying a beautiful saturday:

a shame, sundays are beautiful days for riding downtown, in my experiences.

Recent interesting sightings (sorry, no photos).

-Person in a full-length black burqa riding a primary-colors Y-style mtn bike.

-Middle-school-aged kid passing me on the outbound forbes ave downhill: all entirely while doing a wheelie on his bmx and rather elegantly braking with the heel of his sneaker.

A few more from around town:

This guy was hauling ice at Station Square:

IMAG0359

Taking photos of cyclists is hard because my phone is so slow. I had the good fortune to capture this guy in the frame before I even fully realized he was there:

IMAG0360

This rider was heading SB towards the Smithfield Street Bridge. Not a great photo, but wanted to document the female rider.

(That’s Edmonds…..)

IMAG0389

IMAG0391

IMAG0388

IMAG0394

IMAG0397

(left the bike somewhere else, but noticed the pedals were in the helmet…..)

IMAG0398

I still have a few more to post. Just didn’t want to jam up the site by posting too many in a single post.

Here are more.

The camera on my phone is so slow that I need to start keeping all the photos of cyclists who are no longer visible in the frame. But perhaps that humor is best saved for just myself…..
