Labor Day Omnium Day 3 – Anderson Civic Center Circuit Race » This was an accidental picture as I was taking out the camera, but this picture is so intriguing to me for a number of reasons. First, it is an unexpected glimpse of my hand, glove, handlebar, garmin, and tire in the middle of what was a very isolated warm-up ride in a very rural part of the area (I was passed by maybe 5 cars the entire time I was on the Clemson side of I-85). Second, there is so much of the picture that is out of focus and/or warped because of camera movement, but there is a section of the road that is nearly perfectly in focus and you see the cracks in the pavement, small rocks in the asphalt, a couple pieces of pine straw on the wet pavement – and for some reason that makes this picture capture more of the essence of the ride then your typical scenery picture.

    You need some gloves. I think we have a couple pairs of team gloves remaining.

My mtb waiting to be pushed to brick alley, plus future cross bike??? The southminster switchbacks further up the hill plus run-in to the berm (bottom) Hwy 31 left sidewalk- hidden gem in Vestavia. Check out my road bike tracks on the berm in lower left pic.
