Bicycle Pictures

A series of photos showing cycling in Key West in November, frost free, snow free and in short sleeves. Beat that wherever you are! These pictures were inspired in part by a comment from Bob in Montana who wrote in noting he faced the prospect of spending a night in a snowdrift if he lost control of his vehicle. Things are different in the Southernmost City.

It doesn't take much to amuse me when I'm out and about looking at what's going on around town. I took a bunch of pictures on Caroline Street with no particular purpose in mind except that I was sitting on the sidewalk and noticed lots of activity. So I took pictures.

Finishing up with a skateboarder, one of those appliances that came along too late to be useful for me, but which still seem able to provide exceptional mobility for those capable of balancing on them properly. In my advancing years I'd prefer a proper bicycle any day of the week.

Can't go wrong with B.O.'s as your background!! Love it.

When you get a chance, could you please post up some pics of the old Market building behind B.O.'s. I understand it recently got a new paint job by Wyland. I miss the old Market.

Really wish I could be there right now - seeing that stretch of Caroline makes it more so...chilly up North tonight. Oh well, requested my vacation and checking the fares for another visit soon. Keep the sunny photos coming!

Glad I could be your inspiration!

Thanks for the pictures of BO's!

We had snow over Thanksgiving, but now we have a case of the Livingston Montana chinook winds. We had gusts of 80 mph with a regular wind of 50 mph. I don't mind it, it keeps all the snow away and I'd rather have hurricane force winds than snow any day.

I find it hard to imagine hurricane force winds that are actually icy. Not for me...

You don't know cold until it's 20 below with 70 mph winds. It makes the wind chill factor go below -100 degrees. Back in 1989, it got so cold the power steering fluid froze in my car and congealed into lumpy gray soup.
