Was torn whether to submit a typical mint sauce type shot with a jauntily placed bike a top a hill with some rolling english countryside (see my other pics here - http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... 0&start=30) or go for something a little bit more 'arty' and meaningful....

... so I went for the arty one. For me, the reason why this picture fits the bill is that it is not just the bike, the single track or the view, but also the smell and sight of mother nature, and just plain old being outside and amongst it which is what all this nonsense means to me....

Yeah it is ok but very 'mint sauce' so fancied doing something different! Would enter a few if the rules allowed!
