Interesting pics of your bicycle

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

Interesting pics of your bicycle

Yeah, I know we've got a bicycle pics thread, but I thought maybe some of us might have some shots of our bicycles in interesting places ... away from the white garage door.

What are some interesting things you've seen in your travels on your bicycle ... and what have you been compelled to stop and take a photo of as a backdrop for your bicycle? Anyone got some pictures of your bicycle and the "big things" (giant community monuments) found in many small towns?

Or shots of your bicycle from different angles?



Like these maybe ...

Sweet pic, machka. That looks like the most amazing tandem bike ever built.

Here's my contribution. It's not as cool as the OP, but it's right next to my bed. That's actually where my bike lives. That's what happens when you're a poor, married, college student. That's my dresser on the right with my floor pump behind it. My bike actually serves as a clothes hanger half the time. Anyways, enjoy.

Ok, I already posted these to the NorCal forum, but here's a few from a ride up to Tioga Pass in Yosemite:


at the summit


resting at a pretty alpine meadow and pond above 9,000 feet


Tenaya Lake


Half Dome from the other side

Yeah I know..... we get lucky here every once and awhile. It is a rare day that it isn't either raining or has 25 mph winds... or both.

You must be some climber if you went up Alpe D'Huez in that gear.

On 74 going into Hemet, CA.




It's in there somewhere.





Madison, KS








Poughkeepsie, NY

Tackling Schweitzer on a cold rainy day.





The climb was pretty basic. A few swithcbacks, and some cold rain on the way up. Here's a pic from a scenic point near the top. You can just barely see Sandpoint through the clouds below, resting on the shore of Lake Pend Oreille.
