Show us pictures of YOU on YOUR road bike

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

Show us pictures of YOU on YOUR road bike

This could potentially be The Worst Idea for a Thread Ever. Or it could be legit.

But here goes... show us pictures of YOU (not a pro, not a friend, not some google image) on your road bike. You can be racing, but that's really for the racing thread. Just regular old you on a road bike is good enough for this... experiment.

Now... post!

If you're asking others to post their pictures, you have to post yours first.

Yeah... about that. See, I don't have one yet, so I'm looking for inspiration from you guys on how to pose, what myspace angle to use, etc. I'll post as soon as I have one though!!

The one caloso and I are wearing is a NorCal BF jersey, someone on our local board designed and had them made.
