Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Photos of YOUR bicycle near WATER

We've got several threads of pictures of our bicycles with various backgrounds and of the things we see on our rides.

But how about some photos of our bicycles with a watery background ... the ocean, lakes, rivers ...


A pond in a park in Shepparton, Victoria, Australia


Lake Eildon, Victoria, Australia


Lake Eildon, Victoria, Australia - the other side from the one above


Goulburn River, Victoria, Australia


All taken relatively locally to where we currently live.

If you're going to show pictures of nice scenery you could at least tell us where they are taken.

Recently went on a bike ride to Eindhoven. Here are a few pics I snapped:

Put my bike up on this walkway to try and get a few pics:
