I Went to the Town Hall Meeting on Health Care and Found...a High Wheeler!

On the way to the Town Hall Meeting in Longview, Washington the other day, I didn't quite know what to expect. What I found when I got there was a very polite crowd and a good public dialogue.

What I found on the way down was my favorite secret obsession: a high wheeler. We stopped in Centralia at the Country Cousin resaurant (where they serve Yak meat, right in Centralia, Yak meat!), and there hanging from the rafters was an old high wheeler.

I believe it is a real one from back in the day. I tried to take a few photos without causing a stir, but I'm afraid I was still a bit of a spectacle.

Anyone know what kind?

Isn't it great that a bicycle is a prop for old-timiness ambiance setting? Who doesn't like an old bicycle?

Keep it hangin' (or is it better not hangin' and rather ridden?)
