Who exactly are Bike Forums members? Post pics of you and your bike!
 
Am I the only one?

When I read postings - especially ones by the regular contributors - I always get an image in my mind what they look like. Sorta like when I read a book: I mentally picture the characters, you know?

Characters...now that describes quite a lot of us here on the Forums!

Anyhow, let's see you guys and gals post some pics of you with your bike(s)! Working on them, riding on them - or just standing there looking proud/happy/confused/goofy/whatever!

A little story behind the pics is always welcomed.

Thanks!

You have me confused - that would be Road Forums! Forget about competition 'cause this is just a request for 'faces to go with names', if you get my drift.

So what I'd really like to see is some of your caricature sketches of the members for whom you've drawn a mental image! :P

Here I am in the orange wool jersey, a fashion nightmare! My '78 Trek is far more color coordinated than I. Some say ride what ya got, I say wear what ya got!

I'm easy. Look to your left <------------ That's me. Ask top506, he's the only one who's seen me...he lives in Maine and I live in Minnesota! I keep on trying to meet gomango for a ride... :(

Below are my bikes (in possession but some soon not to be):

Hmmm...no pics of me with the bikes?! :twitchy:

Gomango has a bum knee, although I rode for 10 minutes yesterday and today on the stationary! Yippeee.

Out for a ride in the Bavarian Alps.

OK you didn't say what year. I wore what I had. November 1970, I think:

I asked my wife to take a picture of my bike and me a couple of weeks ago....she just laughed and said why?!

This is great - a retro pic (I was hoping we'd see some of those, too) of a member from back in the day.

I especially like the 'skills display' pics (particulary because I can't do them!).

Thanks and keep 'em coming! Great submissions so far...

very cool pic Blaise_f. Have you read the book the lost cyclist? It reminds me of your sf to alaska tour via an ordinary. All about some famous world travellers in the 1890s. I gotta get my wife to snap some photos of me on our next ride together.

Not a great picture but the only one I can find of me and a bike. Labor Day 2009 at Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis, MN.

I'm usually the camera man and I can't seem to find a pic of me with a bicycle. So, here is one of me with my motorcycle (since sold). Taken a couple years back by my sister on a cold April morning.

That's where my kids race their 420's, and my c-scow!

Home of the Lake Calhoun Sailing Club.

Oh, great bike paths as well. :)

I don't have any photos of myself with any of my vintage bikes, it looks like. Here I am in Estrella, Spain a couple of months ago with Timmy Duggan, pro cyclist on the Garmin team. He'd just finished the Gran Premio Miguel Indurain. I was the lone American fan there among loads of orange clad Euskatel Basque fans.

I shouldn't need to explain this one. :-)
