The triple crown has come to town once again and for those that did the race may have gone between 40 and 50 miles. The check points were so far apart I could only ride to one and I think I picked the best one. There will be a video coming out of all 3 legs of the race (DC, BALT and RVA) so until I dig up links for pics from the other races, enjoy these pics from the Balt leg HERE.
Saturday night the first alley cat of the year took off from the tower at Druid Hill Park. For as windy as it was, it was a good turn out and I rode up there to get some flicks at the start, and at the after party. I toyed around with some of the photos of the start, it was a good day for some sky but the rest I kept simple. Besides the wind, it was a good time and judging by the “1” I assume there will be more. Check the rest HERE.
You can find these photos over at Bishop’s flickr account. I don’t know if all of them are up right now but Ben’s Columbus Road bike is. Heres a full shot of each bike, the rest will pop up soon I’m sure.
Where did the year go? First off BaltimoreVelo closed up shop for reasons I can relate to and understand first hand. Not that I personally feel abandoned, I feel like I’m the one who abandoned, I mean I’ve had complete control the entire time. As for going out and riding every weekend, was hard because I spent almost every weekend shooting a wedding, over half the weekends in a year actually and when you factor in vacations or other plans, that doesn’t leave very many days. We tried to get out a few times and at this point no one knows where the interest lies anymore. I’m not quite sure where my interest lies anymore to be honest but I made a few changes recently that will keep me from shutting down the site just yet, as it not isn’t costing extra money, just money I’d be spending anyway. The past few months, wrapping up the year has been busier than I had planned but I think it was the most successful part of my year so far. While I come up with new ideas, make new friends and keep putting in more work, maybe some of you have something to offer. I mean Bmorefixed has NEVER been involved politically, I mean look at what we’ve done. While I may be in my personal life, I like riding bikes for the freedom, and for the sake of feeling like my glory days of hanging out skating all day. While I work on a way to kick off 2014, enjoy this picture from Hampden Fest I took this summer, I never actually put any of those up so Im posting one now. Have a good new year and ride/drive safe!
Here’s the rest of the photos for the martini track bike. Check out all the customized campy parts those guys put a ton of work in to! Im late posting this up due to moving servers but I figured I should post the follow up anyway. Check the set HERE.
This Martini Racing painted track bike loaded with Campy parts is en route to Rex in China as I write this. I was able to get some shots of it for Chris as the paint job done entirely by hand at Fresh Frames took quite some time. When I first saw this bike I starred at it for about 20 minutes, those guys did an impressive job. More pics will be up on Bishop’s Flickr when I’m finished.
Been a while, but I never put this set up. I shot another bike for Chris yesterday which I will put up shortly. Check the set HERE.
Danny has been wanting to hit Patapsco state park lately, since he goes pretty often for downhill. He also spends some time fishing there. We made it down there finally but since it has been raining so much, those trails hold a lot of water and it makes the ground soggy. The first jump he hit we decided to call that one quits because of traction issues when landing, the landing goes straight in to a tree and if you can’t hook up then you can’t make the turn around it. We plan to go back down there at some point when I don’t have a wedding every weekend and hopefully when it dries out a little bit. Check more HERE…
Here’s the other bike I said would pop up soon. Tommy’s pride and joy that he himself painted. You may have to see it in person to really appreciate it but I did my best to capture the paint. Check out the photos on Bishop’s Flickr HERE. Check out Tommy for all your bike painting needs…
