Only The Beginning

After just a couple of days, our Flickr group has 27 members! I will admit that is 25 more than I thought we would have (Meli and I are joiners! BTW, Meli is here in spirit but is away in body for a few more days.). That there are people out there who are willing to pay any attention to this endeavor is heartening!

The Flickr group is open to any photographic interpretation that shows how riding has changed and shaped your life. Our first submissions are starting to show some of the breadth of what people experience on two wheels. The group has an optional theme this month of "Beginnings".

Some are more traditional. I have to say I love the cans on the back!!

Some show the results of that first bicycle inspired date! I wonder if these beautiful girls will meet their life mates on bicycles? Or Kettler tricycles?

And some chronicle the end of the road warrior and the beginning of the more relaxed leg of the journey. Besides, there is no such thing as a bicycle conversation that does not end up in a comparison of road scars (maybe that will be a theme one month!)

Thanks to all who have submitted their pictures! Every story has a beginning, and each one will hopefully spur many others.

To see more pictures or to submit one yourself, please visit our Flickr group. You never know, you may see it here!
