I know I’m not the only person who has a tendency to carry around a little 35mm point and shoot with them when they go riding. I always keep a spot open in my camera bag alongside my DSLR, lenses, flashes, etc for mine. It’s a good way to create physical mementos of the spots you ride, the places you go, and the people you’re hanging out with. My camera of choice: the Olympus Stylus. It’s cheap, easy to use, and takes pretty deece photos. I definitely recommend carrying something like this around with you, even if it’s just something you slip in your back pocket when you head out the door in the morning. Someday you’ll be glad you have those pictures to look back on.
