CX at Edgewater

CX Race
My friend Woody has been racing cyclo-cross with Joy Machines Racing for a few years now but I hadn't had the chance to see him. With Sunday looking like a beautiful day Ben and I decided to ride up to Edgewater Park and take in the first race of the season. Since it was going to be over a 70 mile day for Ben and I in the saddle I just brought my usual riding set-up - the Canon 6D with the 40mm pancake lens - not an ideal rig for sports photography but I still did my best to catch a few cool photos of my friends.

Day in Brooklyn

Day in Brooklyn
We spent our last full day in New York exploring Brooklyn. We both had a couple of spots we wanted to check out. Erin lived in Brooklyn and had spent most of her time there. She couldn't believe how much some of the neighborhoods had changed - or some areas where there hadn't really been anything before. Not to mention the glass towers that are now going up in Brooklyn too.

Brooklyn Bridge Walk

Brooklyn Bridge Walk
You've seen this photo of the bridge, I've sen this photo of the bridge - but I still wanted to take mine anyways. Walking over the Brooklyn Bridge is always on my list when I go to New York but this time I finally made it happen - in good light and everything.

NYC Part Three

New York City
After a coffee stop I rode my bike back to the rental place then met Erin at the Union Square Green Market - a farmers' market in Union Square. We spent most of the morning/afternoon shopping - or more accurately window shopping. A highlight was the Chelsea Market where we ate lunch, but also checked out many boutiques, artist markets, and all sorts of other spots.

New York City by Bike

New York City
On our second day in NYC we got up and hit another one of Erin's excellent coffee shop choices(apparently I didn't take any photos - probably because I hadn't had coffee yet). We then went back to the room and got organized for a day on bicycles. We rented a couple of hybrids from Blazing Saddles near the base of the Brooklyn Bridge. We rode around Lower Manhattan, along battery park, and then followed a trail all the way up the Hudson River into Washington Heights before cutting over to The Bronx. Erin wasn't so fond of these bikes so she hopped a subway back south and I rode along the East River meeting her in Soho.

New York City Day 1

Financial District
I always love visiting New York City - there is just an energy there that I haven't quite felt anywhere else I've been. I've wanted to get back for a while. Erin ended up finding a really good deal on some plane tickets and then we found an Air BnB in Two Bridges that seemed cool and affordable.

Summer Things

Countryside Farmer's Market
Downtown at Dusk, Countryside Farmers Market at Howe Meadow, Magic City Brewing, and more - all great Summit County summer places to ride and meet friends. Here are are a few shots I took while out and about on my bicycle over the last week.

Roller Skating on Cascade Plaza

Downtown Akron Partnership has been hosting monthly themed roller skating parties on Cascade Plaza. This month I photographed the 90's party for them. I stay off of the skates though.
