Desk Top/ Wallpaper

Just thought it would be neat to see what you have for a pc desktop wallpaper.
Care to share a photo of it ?
I tend to change mine quite often..

Lets see them

I copied this photo of a bunch of city bikes in a bike-shae program in Hangzhou China. I lost the link to the original article. But the story is that this is one of 3 or 4 areas that the police collected and store the bikes. They don't seem to have a docking system. So the bikes are getting despotied anywhere around the city, unfortunately. Here's another article that talks about it: https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2...ycles-hangzhou

Nope. First in line for the boat!

I learned quickly the inconvenience of missing the last boat in the Netherlands well before that...

The current background is from toward the end of one of my favorite spring routes - once I reach the Mississippi River, it means I'm almost home!

Other favorite backgrounds include: pictures from rides in different seasons, pictures of cats.

We're both alumni so during the season we fly the flag on our desktop! Not sure what's on the laptop.
