Riding Duo


This was snapped quickly in Cedar Key. I was tempted to stop them and speak of bicycle safety, but then realized I ought mind my own business.  No sense asking for trouble.  Right?

This was cross-posted to Cedar Key (Florida) Photos.

You don't usually see someone sitting that way on a bike.

Mouth shut, camera ready, click! There, now enjoy the photo. :) No shoes, no helmets, no thinking! They're young, what else can you say. Nice image Lowell, you've done good :)

"No sense asking for trouble" even if they're begging for it. Ouch!

Great capture, Lowell !
Are they training for a circus performance ?

I can see where you're coming from Lowell ☺ but you're right, it probably wouldn't have been appreciated 😀😀

Great capture! Yup, that is crazy dangerous.

Interesting way to get from here to there. But I guess it worked!

Dangerous riding and barefooted to boot! I have been known to warn a youngster about a dangerous activity. Mostly they just say "I know" and keep on doing it.

That really takes me back to being a kid, Lowell! Fearless!

Oh, this could be Dutch children :-)

It looks like fun. And when you are that age, doing anything the least bit dangerous is equal to fun.

Dangerous! This week there an accident with a cargo bike. There were four children on the the bicycle. And a mom. When the bike in the water two fishermen came to save two babies and the other childs. And they are alive.

And it could have happened all over.
I sometimes think just like you :-)

No sense at all, you never know how those wild and crazy bike riders will react ;> We used to do things like that all the time and most of us survived -- but it is really strange and odd (and i must admit in some ways kind of fun) to see kids being kids these days.... and yet ... if those were my grandkids I wouldn't stand for that behavior for one minute!!

Some youths are dare-devil. Their parents would be shocked to see this. I haven’t seen like this but one person standing behind the another who pedals.
