Odd Shot Monday

Anyone can play Odd Shots here on Mondays by posting a photo that seems odd to them and commenting on my current Odd Shots post to let others know you are participating. Details can be found by clicking the Odd Shots Camera in the sidebar. I will eventually add you to the blogroll.

We followed this biker down the mountain road for quite a ways. He looked oddly legless on his recumbent bicycle from this angle. Though we often see cyclists pedaling up to the mountain, this is the firs recumbent we have seen.

I have only seen a very few recumbents! They look so strange! To me, the riders look awkward and not really relaxed!

Great pic!

Here is mine for this week! It is way out there!

He does indeed seem to be sans jambes!

I never did get to try one of those, though somehow I don't think it would suit me - I prefer drop handlebars,etc.
Looks wonderfully odd.

Very interesting odd shot. I'm sure he has legs tucked in the front.
Cool shot.

Good capture! He does look legless. I my back I would like a recumbent bicycle. My Odd Shot is up too.

RaesMom said...

He does look odd. It's funny to see him all decked out in riding gear on such a bike that looks too casual for such stuff.

I probably wouldn't have noticed his leglessness if you had not mentioned, Katney. I have mine up now.

He does look rather limbless, from that angle. I wonder if recumbent bikes are an advantage over standard in that steep mountain terrain?

My shot is (finally) up. I had some help this week from the piXies! I only have eyes for you

Interesting!
