What a treat to have these bike riders toil around Napa Valley on our electric bikes last Saturday! Bruce, “the ringleader” asked me earlier, “Where to go?” and I instantly thought of my last few riders raving about O’Brien’s Estate Winery and I knew Mr. O’Brien would not let them down! I quickly called the estate ahead in advance to make sure they got in. I also made lunch reservations for them at the phenomenal Hurley’s Restaurant. They have an amazing patio smack dab in the middle of Yountville that’s just perfect for people watching on Washington St! After shooting off more ebike riders on their Napa Valley ebike trek, I had some free time in the afternoon and thought it would be fantastic to pull out the Canon SLR and take shots around the valley of my “Crazy 8″! I dubbed them “The Crazy 8″ because as soon as they jumped out of their Jeep convertible to pick up the ebikes in the morning, they all jumped on the ebikes and the boys were just whizzing along fearlessly and flying by in the parking lot! I stood there saying to myself, “Ummmm…. Guys??!!!”
Here are some shots I took of them at Hurley’s and driving down Yountville towards beautiful Silverado Trail. I am not by any means a professional photographer, but I’m slowly but surely learning!
The fun part of the short photo shoot was watching them cruise past the “regular” bike riders effortlessly and picking up their wine purchases from O’Brien’s and Domaine Chandon. Hey – you can send me to Domaine Chandon anytime! I love going through their beautiful property!!!
Thanks Crazy 8 for letting me take photos of you guys! You guys are too much fun and way too awesome! I hope to see you again on your next trip to Napa!
