2011 Sea Otter Dual Slalom Photos

3 SeaOtterDualSlalom.JPG

During my stay at Sea Otter something happened to my mentally and emotionally that I can’t explain.  It’s a bit more deep than I want to get into on this post but one of the after affects was wanting, no yearning, to take more bike racing photos.   Saturday afternoon before we packed up for the day, Neal and I hiked up the dual slalom hill to watch the final heats of the races.  While I had no experience of this type of racing, besides what I have seen in the magazines, it was thrilling.  It took a BMX track and pulled it downhill.   In fact it looked SUPER fun.   Everything I love, downhill, speed, berms and a short sprint!

Here are some of my favorite photos I took during the 20 minutes on the course. Feedback and criticism are encouraged!

2,000 Nude Cyclist

There has been the naked bicycle rides and events but I believe this photographer set the standards a tad bit higher than I’ve seen done before.

Dozens of women posed naked on their bicycles on a bridge over one of Amsterdam’s historic canals on Sunday – a unique sight even in a city famed for its relaxed attitude toward nudity and sex.

Found at the Brisbane Times

Have you done a naked bicycle ride, or posed nude with your bike?  I think I am too self conscious to even think about this task, but there are 2,000 cyclist in Amsterdam that weren’t!
