First ride in months today. I've been doing some long overdue work on my Jamis (which lives in Germany, and waits patiently for me between visits!) so took the old girl out for a spin in the local forest. Bloody cold, iphone froze (which made me lost!) and hardly a soul around.
It was fantastic!

Hiding the burger ingredients in a block of ice? Clever!

Nice place for a ride, though - PROPER snow.

Looks like riding in that snow would be hard going - fun though!

I got hopelessly lost for a while. I was using cyclemeter on my iphone to plot where I'd been, and it died!
Kind of a modern day Hansel and Gretel :lol:
I was completely shot by the time I found my way out

Nice pics too. How did you get the ones where the bikes colour really stands out but the background looks almost black and white?

I bought myself a new camera around xmas time, and it has some fancy effects on it.
Saying that, most of the pics were standard. It's just the combo of a bright red bike with a white/grey background
