My daily mile page is here
We've got photos with bikes, while biking, with family, our pets, even favorite recipes. What a great thread!
Here's one I found recently taken last Summer of the entire family:
The young one on the left, he's presently building a cyclo-crosser with my help. Me and Mrs. WNG, and the older one on the right (who considers bikes as transport appliances.)
We were at Meteor Crater, AZ.
 Oh, that's my 80s Specialized fanny pack, for cycling content.

^^ It's not the hat.. I'm goin for the MTB bars/grip down on the bottom of the pic.
How'd that boy get one of my hats?
Cycling related? Are those Oakleys , or is there a Shimano hub on that spool of line?
The search for inner peace continues...
On today's ride up to Negro Bar on the American
River Bike Trail:

I trust there will be no comments about me
classing up the place.
Bike: 1970 (?) Anniversary Headbadge Super Course,
far from original, but highly functional given age.
Me: 1949 East Coaster (D.C.) with a few modifications due
to age and parts unavailability, but highly functional given age.
Note the obligatory bike in the air shot, although
the only thing we were celebrating was that the
fog has lifted after a week or ten days of it.
Days like this in the middle of January are why
California is so crowded. Apologies to those of
you neck deep in snow, but in my defense, I've
shoveled plenty of it in my past.
I think back when I was fast, I was hallucinating.

cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
Since we're on a "days of our youth on bikes" kick, here's my early childhood recollection of being on wheels (so what if it's three wheels and not two). Although I can't remember this photo being taken, looking at it makes me seriously think it was posed for the camera:
That's a great one, Anton! I like how you're holding a toy car in your left hand. Don't want to leave that behind!
I'll have to find the tricycle one of my youth to post.
Here's my oldest son and me a couple of summers ago in our Gitane jersey's. Also, one with my 70 yo dad on a retirement road trip for him to LA in 2009 to see the LA Dodgers for a few games. Finally, one of my dad and I last fall at the start of our local 100k ride.
