Tattoo Suggestions That Are Cycling Related

I am looking for suggestions for a cycling related tattoo to be placed on the outside of my lower left leg. If you have a graphic, please post it. The attached is the tattoo that I have on my lower right leg which has to do with my hobby of skydiving. Thanks.

I've seen lots of chainrings and a few chains.

You might look through the sticky in SS/Fix for some ideas, too. I've got a cog with the word bicycle in Japanese on it on my right leg...

I'm toying with the idea of getting a partial chainring "grease" tat, with some subtle blood dripping from the points of the chainring (like I'd jammed my calf into the chainring in a crash).

Unfortunately, my SO tells me I do that...it's over.

Yeah, it's really an awful picture all around. They don't really show the tattoo very well, and the guy's leg is badly overdue for a clean up shave (I don't do that either, but that's subject for about 450 threads that have already been done, so let's not go there). But the R of A is still cool

FWIW, that's a fakie (temp) tattoo...I got one when I bought my R of A jersey years ago.

How about a tattoo of bikapeli ??

Kokapeli on a bike.
I don't have a graphic, but it should be an easy one for a tattoo artist to do.

Sounds like a great idea for a tat! Methinks you need a new SO.

I'm well aware of that fact. The OP wanted Tattoo Suggestions That Are Cycling Related, so . . .
