🌳 l e a h  Executive editor @bicyclingmag. How I see it from my bike and my life. Co-creator of #solo_tree.

Midday shadows at one of my fave lunchtime ride locations--and the perfect spot for a Faraday portrait. #baaw

New kicks.

I can't believe my baby is 18 years old today! #tbt

Missing this dreamsicle today. Such a great bike. Such a disaster for my bank account. 😜

Some days I see symbolism and hope in this powerful stand of trees. Other days it just seems like a bunch of trees. #notmypresident

This guy insisted I stop and take a picture in front of this woodpile. So vain. #baaw #bianchi

A year ago last week I had life-altering surgery to repair a malfunction caused by a rare disease. The operation allowed me to eat and breathe properly for the first time in years, which made every bike ride (not to mention daily life) last year a joy and a revelation. As this year ushers in a new set of challenges and fears, I cling to the memories of last year's rides, and try with all my strength to forge ahead with new ones. #tbt #chasingfog #solo_tree

A grey, windy day made a little brighter. #bianchi

But we can ride it out. #notmypresident #resist

I wish I could have joined a march today, but family stuff kept me home. Still it was perfect weather for a quick ride to the lake. #chasingfog #rsa_fog

So many of the things I love. Minus the power lines. #chasingfog #roadslikethese #rsa_fog

One thing I've grown to dislike about Instagram lately is that the photos I post that make me happiest are not the ones that get the most "likes." None of my official #2016bestnine represents the high points of my year. Yeah, I know everyone likes fog and autumn leaves and lone trees. But my year was about so much more. So here, instead, I chose nine that make me smile or remember something meaningful about the moment or day they were taken. And thanks to the friends who shot a few of me! >> @aswisswithapulse (cows, tunnel); @fizikofficial (Italy)
