Random Bike Sighting Here and There and Further Out

Sometimes I just have to stop and take a quick shot of a bike that catches my eye.

This sleek and sophisticated road bike I spotted in front of Collins Irish Pub here in downtown Flagstaff.

While visiting my cousin in Phoenix, I came up a few bikes parked out in front of the establishments we visited.  No riders though.  It was very hot outside and I rarely see a bike in Phoenix with an actual human being attached to it.  This particular bike with a broken chain is simply used as a large flower basket.  I guess the proprietor is going in the right direction.

On the same trip, we did see signs of human life parked in front of Paris Envy. . . . .

This sandwich enclosed in a plastic container and resting in a wire bike basked appeared freshly made.  I admit to being tempted to snatch the sandwich but decided the owner was doubtless nearby - and of course stealing would be wrong.

During our recent trip to Greenville, SC we came upon this old military issued bike at an army-navy store on North Main.  Very cool.  Easy to imagine some young private on this bike carrying a critical message from President Roosevelt to General Patton.  There's a very cinematic quality to my imagination and I can't walk by an interesting bike without wondering about the person who pedals it and where it's been.

And also in Greenville, a old tandem bike as signage for TTR Bikes.

The old military bike, there are so many things about it I like. Thanks for sharing that one.

I like the military bike too! Actually, I always like looking at someone else's random bike shots and find myself taking them from time to time too! It's nice to find others who share in this somewhat eccentric hobby!
