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!

So for now, a pic of the MTB up near a heli port refill spot at Bonelli Park.

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.
