Photos of your bike: Sunrise + Sunset.

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

Photos of your bike: Sunrise + Sunset.

1) I did use the search function (thrice) and could not find the thread I was hoping to find, so sorry for a what has likely been done before thread.

2) Mods I was not sure of the correct place to post this, settled for here.

Now, as title really I'd like to see photos of original content (your own photos) of your bike or any ones bike in a sunrise/set theme. Yourself in the picture is of course optional.

I just want to see lovely pictures really weather its flat landscapes or mountain viwes.

I'll add some tommoro some time if I make the sunrise, but for now feel free to go ahead without me.

Thanks in advance for what I'm sure will be some as some and inspiring images to make one want to go out and ride, already some lovely ones in the water / autumn thread.

Thank you! I love your autumn thread!

BoSoxYacht that's awesome!

MachoMan I'm likening just the hint, although still just a wee bit dark to be a true sunrise, its a nice time to ride though.


As for my photos it was verry foggy in the town I live in when I woke up at 6am so you can imagine what the marshland would have been like, many tommoro as there's no fog forcast.

Yes, the last 4 miles are what is called the moonscape which was created by deforestation and can be windy hence ventoux. The 4 mile center section of the climb is covered in trees.

Some nice photos here, and DG you were there so it counts, I got some photos but just missed the sunset as it went down behind the hills....so did not get the wonderful golden glow...and I think I got the exposure wrong....really dark image but it was nice as I found a hill so it looked like the sun was just behind the hill not actually behind the huge hills in the background.... Oh well.

Sorry for the delay I completely forgot yesterday, as said not how I wanted them to turn out....and yes I really do ride that old hunk of steel, I don't like it but its pretty bomb proof, wish I could afford something new and shiny haha!
