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

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

So here's a picture of my bike with Cindy, Giant Photo style:


And here's my bike with Cindy in real life:


With a train.


Here's the ol' Worksman with a dinosaur.


And with King Tut.

Nice, I have a train shot too, but not up against it.

Must of been sitting there waiting on a crew change, no one was around or I would have tried to put it on the catwalk for the shot.

How 'bout a road bike on the set of a sci-fi movie?



Do you recognize it?



Ever see Logan's Run?

That cow was probably underaged, too, so you need to work that in there.

He said 21 mph.

And I thought I had seen and experienced a lot over the years of riding... I guess I haven't seen it all! This is a great picture! Hope you gave your ride a good cleaning after this though.
