Tricks & Treats.

While driving through the middle of no where Wisconsin, we ran into a different type of biker gang. Trick riders in costume. It was very entertaining to watch. Have a safe and fun Halloween everyone!


Nature Valley

The other weekend I was in  Menomonie, WI when the Nature Valley Bicycle Festival was happening. It was the first year that they came to Menomonie, it was incredible! There were well over 200 men and woman that had already raced in St. Paul, Cannon Falls, and Minneapolis Uptown, before coming to Menomonie on Saturday. On Sunday they were finishing in Stillwater. The professional men’s race was 95 miles and the woman’s race was 76 miles.  There were amateur criterium races as well going on all afternoon. They were all awe inspiring events to watch, even though I came up with a rather extensive list of things I would rather do than sit on a bike seat for nearly four hours! It was cool to hear, feel and see 120 bikers whiz by you in a matter of seconds. I am a fan.

A Rider For Life.

My trusty guinea pig model and I took an addventure into the woods so I could practice photographing more “extreme” sports. I think I may have worked him a little hard, asking him to repeat things all the time so I could try something a little different. The end result was a tired model and a happy photographer. =)
