Friday Photo - Bicycling Musician

The Bicycling Musician (Ben Weaver) and his bike
Searching the Internet I found a article about Ben Weaver, a musician who travels from one show to another by bicycle. As you can see from the photo, he carries his guitar and banjo in special panniers on the back. The writer of the article (Jonathon Miles) rode with him from St. Paul, Minnesota to New Orleans, Louisiana. Along the way an elderly gentleman at a filling station talked to them a bit. When told what they were doing, he said "My mama told me never to talk to crazy people." Their tour featured 24 days of riding and 12 shows, covering 1,500 miles of travel. You can visit Ben's website and sign up for his newsletter if you want to stay up to date on his travels & music.

Here's a video for Ben's song "White Snow"
