Phone camera dump: A few pictures from Charleston 

I spent last weekend in Charleston (SC) and thereabouts with friends, cycling, eating, and walking around. There are a few stray pictures in my phone that you might, or might not, enjoy.

The Battery, on Sunday afternoon.

How do you transport your bike to these destinations? Or do you rent on-scene?

Ah, Simon, great question. I ride a Litespeed Classic at home, and generally transport that to any destination within driving distance (the Adirondacks, Virginia, etc.). I keep an inexpensive yet quite functional Schwinn Fastback at my girl friend's house in Austin, so I ride that there. My friend in Charleston has a disturbingly large number of excellent bikes to ride, and I use one of those when I am there.

Hey TH, can we institute the "Elvis" rule whenever you are posing for a bike picture (only shots from the waist up)? I had just eaten lunch and I had an unexpected trampoline effect upon viewing you in your bike shorts:))

BTW - will be in the Princeton area the week of the 22nd will you be around?

TH: I too had wondered about how you managed to be pictured on such a good bike so far from your home base. A less risque version of "friend with benefits". Great biking top too - off the rack or special order?

I should have given you directions to the graves of our ancestors, in a drainage from an air force base that runs through a patch of woods between an elementary school and a subdivision in North Charleston. Elizabeth Davidson Bethune's family, Willimans, etc.

Love the photos!
I'll trade you my new Kindle for your frequent-flyer miles.

TigerRedRaider, the bike shirt is off the rack at Halter's on Route 1, the best bike shop in the area for my money (and I live less than 100 yards from Kopps...). QC, I will be around on the 22nd.

Mrs Kenton was for a while the masters woman roadie champion for our state, and with sponsorships accumulated some pretty cool stuff, as well as some pretty expensive tastes. Of all of it the one I envy - with the nasty black corrosive envy of which spiritual masters of all persuasions except the Choprakian warn us - is her Litespeed mountain bike.

If you ever consider mountain biking in Moab, with gf or not, Mrs Kenton and I make pretty good guides.

The Citadel is also a great visit if you have not already been there. . .
