White Bikes in Manassas

On Sudley Road in Manassas there is a residence that once you pass it you will never forget it. This photo doesn't do justice to the display of bikes featured on this corner lot. All the bikes are welded together and look like they are the riderless bikes in the Tour de France. There must be at least 25 bikes and the owner for the each major holiday decorates the bikes with a theme. I snapped this while Jack was breezing down the street. We will have to go back and do some closeups of this bike display when Easter is here. When you see an unusual display like this in someone's front yard doesn't it make you want to meet the owners and find out how unusual they are? Click on the photo to see this display better.

More great basketball today. When you get down to the Elite Eight all the teams are great and that game last night between Pittsburgh and Villanova was perfectly matched. Jack and I cheered for Villanova because their star player, Scotty Reynolds, is from Herndon High School right here in Northern Virginia. We always enjoyed watching him play in the high school basketball playoffs. Scotty does it all and well and has a very likeable personality.

That is a little unusual. You mean they decorate the bikes and around them with the different holiday themes?

Great bicycle sculpture. You have to be pleased that they decorate it!

Yes, they decorate them differently with the seasons. In the spring, they put up these cute striped unbrellas on each bike in different colors. At Christmas they stack them into the shape of a tree and decorate it. In the fall and Halloween they make it spooky.

This is very cool - quite an eye catcher.
