2012 Crystal Ride Photos

Posted in Cycling, DC, Virginia by MB

Army of One crosses the start on a penny farthing at the 2012 Crystal Ride.

So it turns out there was no official photographer for the 2012 Air Force Cycling Classic Crystal Ride this year. I wasn’t out shooting it, but I did end up with hundreds of photos as I was out there looking at locations for shooting the pro races later in the day. So, in case you know anyone who was looking for photos, here’s more than a few. Simple copies from the site?  Free.  Something that requires more work from me?  Not free (but not expensive).

(I got a great interview with the fellow pictured above.  It’ll run as one on my Clarendon Cycles columns, soon.)

    Glad you enjoyed them, James. The Crystal Ride is always great – I hope it sticks around for a good long while.

    Looking forward to your post with the man on the high-wheeler. I interacted briefly w/ him at Bike to Work Day and wanted to learn more about his travels with it. I know he’s done at least a 100K on that bike. Awesome.
