Pics of your bike with mountain backgrounds

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

Pics of your bike with mountain backgrounds

I sold a bike to a customer in Japan. He sends pictures to me from time to time. I thought this was worthy of sharing. It made me think there must be many more pictures from you BF'ers. I would like to see pictures hopefully of YOUR bike on YOUR ride with a YOUR short little story. Sounds like I'm breaking my own rule but hey I'm starting the thread so I make the rules.

How are you going to top Mt Fuji?

Besides, once I start hammering I never stop to take pictures . . . . hardcore, baby!
(just kidding . . . in the process of looking for some.)

Min, those are really nice.

Between Oaxaca and Puerto Angel, Mexico @1993. Biked and camped with a buddy of mine for three weeks from Mexico City to Guatemala City. We hooked up with two Austrian cyclists for a few days who we met along the way. That is my buddy Larry and one of the two Austrians, while I stayed behind to shoot pics of the descent. This descent started around 10,000 ft. and continued all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

There are no mountains by me.

I love these pics though. I am so jealous of the scenery you all have.

Jay Peak, Vermont. Madone 5.2.


This is one of my favourite rides, starting in Quebec and crossing the border down into Vermont. The road ascends through a pass just to the left of the ski hill and then free falls down the other side. The route winds through some of the most beautiful scenery in northern Vermont. This picture was taken last May.
