Movie Monday – A Vlog

Okay, so I succumbed to the GoPro craze. I know, it’s silly. But I do love cameras, and I am going diving soon, and I do ski, and I do ride my bike, and I do hike, and I live in a beautiful place. So here it is, my first Vlog – a video of my short bike ride on the Spring Creek Trail here in Fort Collins. While most of the trail looks as if it is out in the wilderness, it actually runs right through the center of town. These are shots from my ride on a short stretch of the southwest end of the trail yesterday. Enjoy!

They Came to My Town

they came to my town
a parade of state patrol cars,
motorcycles, bicycles

the color spectrum covered
by fans and riders
a celebration of the sport
a competition to the end

we waited
the helicopter appeared in the distance
flashing lights announced their approach
tiny dots on the hill
quickly transformed to men on bikes
riding across the dam
then up the hill and gone

The US Pro Cycling challenge completed its sixth stage in Fort Collins on Saturday. I attended with thousands of fans. And our hometown hero, Tejay van Garteren won the Challenge!
