The Bike Carson Flickr Pool is growing, and we’re starting to amass a great collection of photography. So much so, that I don’t think selecting one photo per week for the blog is enough. You will also notice that I’ve added a Flickr Widget to the left sidebar that selects 5 pictures at random from the pool. Keep those pictures coming!
This week we have three photos taken by Carson City riders:
The first picture was taken by Dan Turner at “The Ponds”. I have to laugh when I say the name of this place, because I was riding BMX bikes here before I could drive. The Ponds is at the bottom of the hill on Long Street, and has stayed mostly unchanged for well over 20 years. The jumps are much bigger now of course, but it’s amazing that this place has survived development…unlike most of our other childhood riding spots.
Next up is what appears to be a pre-Death Ride photo taken by Brent Ruybalid. I’m guessing pre-Death Ride, since the bikes look freshly washed, with no visible signs of sweat or blood stains anywhere on the bikes.
And finally, we have a fantastic shot taken from the north side of MCClellan Peak by Scott Meikrantz. I usually avoid this area because of the unrelenting climbs, but this photo looking back at Washoe Valley looks like it may be worth the pain and suffering!
