Barney presents the Great Turkey Strut Off. This was filmed outside Herb's office window in Brookfield Wisconsin USA. Spring mating season brings out competition for hens. There was one hen about 20 feet away who's attitude was basically "meh"

Brian GrossmeyerI wonder if those are the two that have been at my place the last couple weeks. I'm on the boarder of Brookfield and New Berlin on the NB trail. There was hen in my condo parking lot yesterday morning.3 weeks, 6 days ago

Brian GrossmeyerBTW...the trail is in my backyard between Moorland and Calhoun. Barney, I think it was last week Thursday when I saw you. I saw your friend, the dog in the backpack on Monday on the trail.3 weeks, 6 days ago

It has been a while since we have done a post, of course Barney does not do much riding over the winter since he lives in Wisconsin USA. He did have a good year, ending with a total of 12,449 miles in his 4th year of riding. 3108 miles for 2016. We did actually take a ride in January as it got to 57 degrees F on a Saturday. Barney was able to see some (melting) ice sculptures. We hope you enjoy the photos and look forward to seeing you on the trails again soon.

Barney reached 12,000 miles back on September 25th. Two days before we had a warmshowers.org guest from Australia join us for the night of September 23rd (our second around the world guest from Australia this year). She took the ferry from Michigan to Milwaukee and we met her in the dark on the Henry Aaron trail. Even when getting dark it is easy to spot the Barney Bike! In the morning we biked to Waukesha and had coffee at the Steaming cup. Debbie went to the farmers market and I rode with Lois to the start of the Glacial Drumlin Trail and said goodbye and Godspeed and then headed back to meet Debbie and the market. Her name is Lois Wolf and she is biking around the world. She had started in Turkey and was headed west from there. She has a very nice blog about her ride. http://www.cyclingsolowithlois.com.au/ She is currently in Montana so hope she makes it thru to the Pacific without a snow storm. Sorry about the delays on status updates. Lots more to share, but will wait a bit for the next post.

Lynn Koeppen-BurkardHi Barney the Biking Bird. We moved. How about doing some biking with Barney in Newburg Wi !8 months, 1 week ago

Barbara SchneiderWas wondering if you were biking. Haven't seen any poste from you8 months, 1 week ago

We have been way behind on Barneys posts and not all has been the doom and gloom of the recent gas spill affecting our back yard. Barney reached 11500 miles back on August 26th. Attached is a short clip of Barney reacting to people reacting to him. Shot on Aug 28th by the Milwaukee Art Museum.

Barney and Swifty are hanging out at the Lanex office for the day. Deb and I stayed at a hotel last night. We have a breeze now from the east so airing out the house and it is getting better. In the mean time the party continues in our back yard.
