An unexpected bicycle sighting. . .

Bob and I took a short walk downtown on Saturday following our lunch at Diablo Burger and saw this:



a bicycle, wrapped in holiday lights, tucked under the gable of this little ramshackled house. Interesting.  Unique.  I wondered at the inspiration of the decorator.  Does he or she just really want to celebrate an intense love of bicycles or was the placement simply an act of artistic whimsy?  If you are a Flagstaff reader with the inside scoop on this display, please fill me in within the comments sections.  No matter though.  It made me smile and look forward to our move to a similar old urban neighborhood.  I'd never be able to get away with this in Ponderosa Trails.

Yep, that's the ol Hobo house on Birch. Those kids live on their bikes... and are always the wacky costumed ones having the most fun at any given bicycle related event. Well, any event for that matter.

Thanks, Ray! Of course you would know. I'll bet those are the kids who showed up spontaneously along our route at the first two Tweed rides! They were fun and crazy!
