Welcome to a very late start to this months competition but it is theme month so this months theme is...………
SUMMER!
A very open to interpretation month this one. Basically as long as it is about your summer and there's a bike then it's in.
Now this type of thing sometimes draws some sort of criticism, either as a whole or at various posts. If you disagree with something someone posts regarding its interpretation then just let it go and move on and don't vote for it, rather than pointing out why you don't like it on the thread.

Hopefully this will work well, it's only a short entry month now and we all have had a busy biking summer with lots of pics so it should be a good one :)

Basic rules: 1 photo and a paragraph, maybe two describing what it is and why it's here. maybe a link to a post about that ride or place etc.
Open to all of course.

Jamie

It's from King cages in the states - doubles as an ass saver. They also do a titanium bell where you can unscrew the dome and use it as a shot glass :D

Took this picture en route to a cottage at Rhoslefain on the Welsh coast, 150 miles ride or there abouts . At which the good lady and I stayed at in May. She gave me a couple of days head start . She then catches up ...in the car .

Great job so far guys and some nice photos. I might put a couple up myself later but up here in Scotland the main difference between summer and winter is that the rain is warmer in the summer, and that's hard to show in a photo. As Brian calls it 'liquid sunshine' :)

It is still winter in South Australia. Only managed 13.9C max today. So no summer photos possible.
I don't recognise the photos submitted as summer photos. In our late summer photos, every piece of vegetation is a crispy brown.

We had 40c here a couple of weeks ago, the vegetation definitely shows it.
