What or who is the wallpaper on your desktops.

Do all of us have cycle oriented computer wallpaper. At home, I have a view of a Bonjour cyclists( Sylvain Chavanel) as he is about to sprint. At work, I have a Fassa Bortolo cyclists( Pertarchi) as he is being kissed by the podium girls after winning a stage in the Giro..
You know that picture, I think being kissed by the dark haired woman in the white dress would make my day, after the honor of winning a stage.

My wallpaper is one of my bikes. One at home and a different one at work.

Mine is lance riding through a field of sunflowers at full bloom. He's small in the pic, and the sunflowers are as far as the eye can see.

Mine is my kids. I love them even more than cycling - and I love my wife even more again. (Am I allowed to say that here?)

I had a picture of Roberto Heras in the golden jersey after winning this year's Vuelta at work, but now it is a computer generated winter landscape as I anxiously await the snow.

At home, I still have a photo of Lance going under the 500m flag at Luz Ardiden from this year's Tour de France that I took while I was up there.

Current dream bike. I find I have to have wallpaper at work of things I want to own, otherwise my motivation level drops.

Viggo Mortenson as Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings. Might change it to Gollum.

"The Look." Lance giving Ullrich the once-over before dusting him on L'Alpe d'Huez in the 2001 TDF.

Mine’s perhaps a wee bit more morbid than bikes.

I've posted this before. Here's mine. I get tired of different ones and keep going back to it. I think it's from the 2000 or 2001 TdF.

Mine is a self-made one. It's the world champion stripes going horizontally across the screen with a white background. I made it with paint in a few minutes.

I haven't been able to find any good cycling ones lately, so I have a photo that a friend took of me at a cross country meet. I'm the kid in the blue with lotsa hair #537.

I have a picture of a Campy Record Carbon rear derailleur. But I have a screensaver that scrolls through all the pictures of my 22.5 month old son who always asks my wife "Daddy bike???" when I'm not home before him in the evening.

I have a very nice whimsical blue donated by microsoft which is dotted with a few delightful icons of dubious value because I never use any of them.

Mine is blank right now, for a while I had some pics of bikes that I wanted, but now "gasp" I'm content with my stable so I switched it to a pic of a woman racing a track bike at a velodrome, beautiful woman, awesome bike, what could be better, but then I just got sick of that for some reason and can't really think of anything else I want on there, so it's blank.

Sometimes I get pictures off of www.webshots.com to use as wallpaper. They have some really good cycling pictures.

Right now, however, my wallpaper is a picture of my grandson.
