Default Point A to Point B--On the Road Again

I took two of these shots during an organized bicycling event. The first features my husband in the blue jersey heading down the hill on a state highway. The riders behind him include a recumbent cyclist and a husband/wife tandem team. The second shot is 15 miles or so further down the same highway-it is almost constant rolling hills, so it is a love/hate type of ride!
The last is a vintage tractor with a grandfather/grandson team participating in a local parade.

Nice shots. Interest in each one. Id like to ride a recumbent, but they are way too expensive. I should make one.

I like all three but especially the third. I have a replica of a metal sign advertising that tractor hanging on my wall about 4 feet from where I am sitting.

That tractor has significance to me. As a small boy in the 1950's my family lived on a farm in northeast South Dakota. My father owned two tractors--A McCormick Farmall and a Massey-Harris. I am not sure of the timing but McCormick was once International Harvester and Massey-Harris became Massey-Ferguson.

Your photo brings back memories.

Very nice memories, Cal.

I like all three, but the tractor shot just pops with the red!

Congratulations to your husband....that is quite a ride!
