Boys and their bikes
Someone said, “want a popsicle?”
“Oooh, yeah! An’ I’ve got something for each of YOU!” as I excavated some cards from the bottom of the messynger bag cards with an audible “flourish“.*
“Check it out! I’m a legend”. A couple of boys (the older ones) backed away.
As for the tykes, their eyes lit up as they picked out all the tiny bike bits in Craig Coss’s (future) prize-winning design.
I asked their coach his name, (Ryan Loften). He told me he runs a camp called Mt Tam Bikes camp. I asked the kids their names. I repeated all six back, but please don’t test me now. Raden is the only one I can remember. These were Ryan’s eagle riders, friends more than clients. Fueling up for a school’s out reconnaissance ride.
We shot the breeze, and I shot these pictures. I didn’t inquire where they hid the girls , but I sure wondered…they need me.
*Yes, I actually SAY the word, whilst
whirling the card in a little circle for added emphasis.
