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

I know I'm not the only one who spots odd things while riding and just has to lay the bike against it for a picture.

For construction equipment, you need a Work Bike, not a road bike.

Like my father used to say, "Son, you might be able to ride with that cow strapped to your back, but you ain't gonna win too many races."

A true story, submitted by yours truly.
