I had a bit of a dilemma with my camera settings, thanks to Justin Steiner and his amazing photo knowledge, I finally have access to my photos!
It started on March 1st, getting onto a plane at 7am with a few of the Bicycle Times/ Dirt Rag posse. Heading to North American Handmade Bicycle Show being held in Sacramento, CA. Although I grew up partially in the cities of Ventura & Ojai, CA I had never made it to Sacramento. Its California. Slightly overcast, chilly in the shade & warm in the sun.
While the skilled and very knowledgable Editors and Photographers made their plans on first interviews and photos, I set up our amazing new booth. After years of laying out visually appealing/ foot stopping retail stores, I was excited to be part of a merchandising creation again.
Here were some of my favorite bikes.
Riding in downtown Sacramento was refreshing. A flat city full of bike lanes. I had no run in's with angry drivers and came across vertical and artistic bike parking frequently. There was an array of bikes riding throughout the day and night in all forms, I ate a lot of delicious food and enjoyed a little of the Sacramento night life.
I saw quite a few Rat Rods on my rides. Oh the joy of living somewhere flat.
My next day was traveling to San Francisco...
