A Bicycle Built for Two



Recently I was driving in my neighborhood.  I passed a man on a bicycle with his young child on the trailer bike behind him.  It was one of those cute "can't miss" scenes.  So, I pulled my car over, rolled the window down, and waited for him to pass me.

Instead he turned in the opposite direction, pedaling away from me.  I quickly aimed for the rear view mirror and -- voila! -- here is another photo for James' regular Friday feature, Weekend Reflections.

Haha sounds like you freaked the guy out!

@Susie, no, it was at an intersection and I just guessed wrong about which way he would turn.

Title: Back in Time. Well, I tried.

Well done. You're getting fast on the trigger.

So, why don't you do what so many other snowbirds have done...just move it all to Florida and stop trying to keep up two places, etc.? :)

Luckily, our grand-reporter was there and ready to do his job!
Well done, Jack!

Love to see fathers and children together on an outing.

I"ve never seen one of those bikes. I"m still trying to get the memory of a huge pile up I saw on TV this morning of the Tour de France!
