I have been meaning to get a new blog picture of myself. The picture I have up is a picture taken of my with my bike (though the bike really isn't evident in this cut) for a public service announcement that Chattanooga was doing to encourage to get moving. Different active people were photographed and then put up on billboards and buses with the admonishment to Just Get Moving". I was the biking person and I saw my picture going by on the bus for several years.
So obviously the picture was out dated and I needed a new one. Since I let my hair go gray I felt this picture was a bit misleading. But I liked it. I don't have many pictures-or at least good ones-taken of me so I hated to change it. I happened to see Trisha's picture on LGRAB at the same time that Russ and Laura of PathLessPedaled came into town. What a serendipitous moment! I would get Russ to take pictures of me with my bike for the blog.
So Russ and I met early Tuesday morning to get some pictures and I think I definitely got some to take the place of the currant one.
Thanks, Russ, for helping me update my blog picture. Happy travels to you and Laura!
I started riding my bike as my primary form of transportation because I love riding bikes. Add in all the wonderful benefits- you know the drill-exercise, money saving, pollution free, oil free, and all the other great things, it just seemed a reasonable choice.
But what I had not anticipated was how different life would look mounted on top of a bike verses looking out of a rolling metal box. The places I go, the people I meet, the things I see are so different. And I love it all.
This is a record of my adventures!
