Bike Carson Photos of the Week

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 Ponds by Dan Turner

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.

Death Ride 2007 by Brent Ruybalid

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.

McClellan Peak by Scott Meikrantz

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!

These pictures were selected from the Bike Carson Flickr Pool. Instructions for adding your photos to the pool can be found HERE.

  1. That is actually POST Death Ride sunset. It was the year I rode alone and Sandie rode out there from home to greet me as I got back to the car.

  2. Deadman’s was across the street! Right below where “Whoville” is right now. South side of Long Street, East of Molly. Molly Street might be where the big Deadman’s jump used to be.
