Pictures of your road bike with... oddball things.

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

OMGosh, me too! I've been LOLing throughout the thread!

I had one great pic with this outcropping of rock
in West Virginia that hung over my Mountain Bike.
Would've been great for this thread.
It was an awesome picture.

It's like his land is the Bermuda Triangle of deer;
where they enter and are never heard from again.

Venisin for the winter!

He gave me some deer jerky. Hmmm?
