    Show us pictures of your bike next to bodies of water...

    This has been a popular thread in the road forum, and one that serves a few different purposes. It lets you show off your bike, eye other peoples' rides. And this is a great excuse to show off your scenery, too.

    If you don't have any pictures of your bike next to a body of water (river, lake, ocean, whatever), you'll have to bring your camera for a scenic bike ride.

    Please tell us where the photos are from.

    A fender on a cervelo! Well, I never.

    I blew it - I took a picture of the beach Saturday but left my bike out of it. I'll be smarter next time.

    Sounds like a ride to Horse Thief Reservoir or Wilson Lake is in order, then. And this thread has officially forced motivation onto its first victim. Muwahahahaha!

    I think I camped at Wilson Lake on a cross country road trip once. Or maybe it was Cedar Bluff Reservoir? It had seagulls!

    Tact is for people who arenít witty enough to use sarcasm.

    Early helplessness is the price we pay for later brilliance. Or, at least our later capacity for non-idiocy

    Wilson, Cedar Bluff and Horse Thief would be a haul. I guess a trip to Scott Lake is in order http://www.kdwpt.state.ks.us/news/St...ocations/Scott

    That's because you see it all the time; it's nothing 'special' that you won't be able to see next week.

    I don't have this frameset anymore, but it used to be mine, and I rode it by the water in the photo ... so I think that counts?

    This was Diablo Lake, on the North Cascades Highway. I camped (with the bike) on the lake in the background. It was a warm day in May or June, and I rode until I ran out of water ... stupidly, I forgot to bring my purifier with me.

    A nice day here in Michigan for the end of Winter. The bicycle is parked in a hosta patch, where some master gardeners do their thing.

    I took this yesterday on a ride along the Missouri River on the Katy Trail in central Missouri. Sorry for the crappy camera phone picture.
