Miles o' smiles

"Happy, happy
Put it in the ground
Where the flowers grow"
"Shiny Happy People," REM

I shot this photo of my friend Kathy riding Queen Bee Loop last night. When I got home and moved it from the camera into my laptop, I thought two things: First, she'd look hotter in a helmet, and second, it's really fun to look at people who have smiles on their faces while they're riding bikes.

Not that I get much experience with that, given the bird-flippin' fetish that most of my friends' indulge on a regular basis. But sometimes, I manage to capture them in moments of happiness instead of fits of frustration. So, to end the week on a uplifting note, I decided to sift through a few photos from the past month and pay tribute to the Happy People:


The Monkee




Go ride a bike this weekend. It'll make you smile.

I don't know if the expression on H's face counts as much of a "smile". More of a grimace really.

You should have seen my smile riding down the Blue Loop last night. Good times!

is there any significance to the fact that the majority of photos you have of smiling bikers are women?
