That's me, violating the two fundamental rules of biking: keep the rubber side down and wear a helmet.

Love this one for the message it offers! And yes, rubber side down, always good! (Helmet always required, too.) Happy riding!

I can only think that posing for this must have gotten a bit old - I hope you didn't need too many shots to get this one. I didn't get it from thumbnail but this is wonderfully funny!

boy does this make you think. lol Interesting take. I think though that the lighting is a bit harsh. it's quite bright on your legs, and then also the shadow from your head and bike are a little distracting as well. Really neat though. nice to meet you.

I like the caricature here. Very good idea. I hope you didn't hurt yourself uprighting the bike. Photographically, I wish you had waited to shoot this picture on a day without such harsh lighting. Your face is too blown out and lacks detail, where we need it most, and the bottom of the picture is way too dark.

Very creative, mustve been hard to pull off although i dont like the shadows much, maybe a fill in flash would have taken care of that, 7
