This week's theme is to pay homage to "The Bicycle", i think that most people have access to this subject.

Any interpretation of the theme will be accepted from a macro shot to movement, exercise bike and anything in between so long as the bicycle is the main subject.

would you like to make use of my daughters bike? Ordered in specially from Holland  :tup:

As for me, well i have 'The Dawes' & 'The Boardman' - both representative of 'their' time, sure i can cobble something together - maybe even join a ride with the CTC to lunch time at a  :beer: :beer: :beer: facility.
1 body, 1 lens, 1 flash gun, 1 tripod, 1 cable release & 1 filter. Keeping it simple!
(I lied, just got a second lens!)

Do you buy your bikes in Holland? Or Dutch bikes in general? I believe I read somewhere, that Batavus bikes are sold here under the Dawes label.

In Holland bikes are often used to transport two people, and therefore sturdily built.

In Holland bikes are often used to transport two people, and therefore sturdily built.

My daughter has some friends in Holland, and her husband got them to get one bought and delivered for self assembly to his parents address - hence she has a genuine Dutch bike. Has a rally great pedal back brake with a clutch for smooth braking.

As for me, well i've had 'the Dawes' for some 17 years now (supplied direct from Dawes) - and it really is due for its 100k super service. The Boardman was an insurance job from Halfords a few months back after some folks raided all of the bike stores at our complex and made off with a few bikes - my mountain bike being one of them.  :knuppel2:

Finally had a chance to get out with the camera for a couple of hours.

Shot some bikes, two of which I took a bit 'further,' among them my entry: Pedal Power.



The other one is the Bicycle Bell, which I decided not to enter.

Yes, it's a bit HDRy. Looks dull on white, much better on black :tup:

Went out for a play today, knocked up a bracket to fit my 7d onto my bike just to see what i could get. First attempt, sort of what i am after, need the hedgerows closer in and i think it will work.



In with this i think.
