If either of my two pics is judged to meet ILTB's 2nd potential new tag, I can propose a new one...

Ha! The OP's Tag was from his location in Merrie Olde England. And the multiple photos were posted in response to the OP's question to me. So the heck with you McGruff!

Hokay then. Next tag is: a cheesy vacation photo prominently featuring a bicycle.

You can take inspiration from my avatar photo, which is me and mrs Rad on a bike tour down Haleakala in Maui. We stopped at a lookout spot and the tour leader had every couple pose like that and took a picture

The intent of this photo was to make it look like my bicycle was pulling the flower wagon. Picture was taken in 2001 while riding around somewhere in the vicinity of Heidelberg, perhaps Speyer or Hockenheim. I worked for 10 years in Germany and it all seemed like a vacation.

Another "Cheesy" vacation photo, taken in Philadelphia in 2015. The sandwich isn't a cheese steak though, but a Tuna Hoagie which I always liked better.
Bicycle is a 1984 Schwinn World Tourist which I kept stashed at my sister's house in the suburbs and used for forays into the city for nostalgia trips when I visit.

Fantastic! Is the composition of that third one meant to show the bike eating the hoagie?

The tag is yours (or should I say ping pong ball?)

The composition, such as it is, was meant to include the street sign indicating the location of this bicycling feast was the Italian Market in South Philadelphia.

OK how about this - picture of goofiest looking expensive cycling outfit actually being worn in public by a bicyclist. Not to include routine goofy looking clothing worn by some cyclists - lycra bibs, snake pit helmets, or jerseys with logos pasted all over - about which we all have previously posted our love or hate.

For an example the following was snipped from a NYC article about the allegedly "fashionable" products Ralpha targeted to bicycle commuters. IMO, the model/cyclist's clothing makes him appear mentally challenged rather than fashionable. No photos from tweed rides are acceptable.




The challenge is out for our comrades to post something similar (cyclist spent good money to look like a fool) they may have actually seen and photographed.

OK I'll make it easy, see if we can entice somebody else to play:

Provide a picture of your bike bearing a large load -- where 'large' means not just panniers or standard bikepacking.

And it doesn't look goofy at all.

That's cool. Like I'm taking fashion advice from someone in America.

So what does the self professed English fashion meister look like? Photos or it could be just one more bicycling down and outer posting.

No standard bikepacking or panniers were used in the transport of these recycles. Note, I wore clothes unacceptable for an English Tea Party when I hauled this load.

No I judge that load to be not large or interesting enough, plus the point is to lure in somebody else
