NBR: Historic SUP...

I have a special affinity for the historic aspects of cycling, the stories and images of past times. Whether we are aware of it or not, we are a part of a long tradition. Realizing that, I think, provides a little extra interest. My uncle, who organizes several stand-up paddleboard events on Lake Tahoe each year, such as this one coming up in March,  recently posted up this very cool photo from 1921.

Completely non-bike related, I know, but stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is a hell of a fun, and complimentary, activity for the off-season. Or as a little break during the long in-season. The upcoming event seems to be more race-oriented, but another event held during the late summer is a big festival where you can try out various boards, listen to live music, soak up the sun and the blue waters. Ride around the lake, or the mountain trails. Hmmm, anyone up for a Tahoe trip this year?
