The lemming is nitpicking. Here I have a backlog of interesting stuff (to me) to write about and all I can think about is this crazy picture above that I keep seeing as ads in magazines.
The picture, I'm sure you recognize from Bicycling and other magazines, is the very hot and very talented Jen Segger for Ryders Eyewear. Jen has a huge list of accomplishments and is indeed a "real rider", so why make-up artist the photo shoot? Why not just let her go out and get dirty for the "Ride for Real" picture? That would seem much more endearing and genuine to me.
In the picture above, unless Jen was scratched by her cat and bleeds chocolate, or if she was lubing her chain with 10W40 and then accidentally streaked it on to her face with a fine bristled brush, odds are she wasn't "riding for real" for the picture and for some reason that just bugs the lemming, it so boldly says "Ride for Real".
Anyway, I wanted to get it on the action and maybe star in a Ryders Eyewear ad myself. I'm not talented enough to draw streaks of chocolate on to my face, but I can do a crude cut and paste. I tried my best to capture the same essence of "realness" as the original. So, I give permission to Ryders Eyewear to use the pictures below in any ads as long as the original photo owner doesn't mind, that said I have no way to contact them.
That's about all I've got, I welcome submissions.
Added on suggestion from Nick, note the lemming must jump tandem, basejumping is more his thing
