Photos of YOUR bicycle near WATER

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

Langley dike, part of the Norfolk Broads, UK A nice little spot on one of my more regular rides. I generally stop here for a few minutes each time even though its only about 30 minutes into my ride, its just such a nice spot.

Wow! Some beautiful bikes near some scenic water in this thread.

Here is a series of three pictures over three years visiting the OBX of NC. The Bonner Bridge before, during, and after construction of the new bridge.



Several years ago at the old Bonner Bridge on the OBX of NC

The following year at the old and beginning of the new Bonner Bridge

The last year on the Fixie at the old and new Bonner Bridge

An Oldie, but... You Know

On lunch break, working from home. Paging through old photos, I don't think I ever posted this one here:



It's an old Gitane Gypsy Sport that I built into a Fancy French City Bike; a "Velo de Ville" if you will. It was fun for a while, but still just a gaspipe frame. So I pulled all the cool parts back off it and distributed them amongst my French thoroughbreds. Now it is just another frameset waiting for me to clean up and sell. And so it goes...*

* Kurt Vonnegut reference.

I do consider myself very lucky! It is a beautiful part of the World. Living in a major beach tourist destination is amazing and makes me feel like I'm on holiday too most of the time. I've been here for nearly 3 years now and don't miss the day-to-day grind of London life one bit.

Jamis Renegade at midpoint milepost on the C&O Canal Towpath

You can see the Potomac River through the trees behind the bike, the C&O Canal was behind me (an unwatered section) when I took the picture. The Towpath is roughly 184 miles long from Washington DC to Cumberland MD - this is basically the midpoint.
