Is anyone up for a photo thread? Mumsnet is pretty international and there should be some good entries. I'll kick off with some from my ride today through the Irish countryside.

Here's a few from one of my favourite rides earlier this year in Cape Town.

And here is one taken at the top of Nic o Pendle in Lancashire.
I love a good photo thread 🚴‍♀️

Nice idea for a thread.

Stunning photos!

Will try to remember to take one in my ride to work this week as it is really pretty at this time of year.

We used to have a general cycle chat thread in exercise that was lovely but it disappeared when the cycling topic was created (and hidden/lost in in the club).

I've just started a query in Site stuff about regrouping the exercise topics. Feel free to wade in...

Brilliant thread idea. Mostly I take photos of the cake at coffee stops grin but I ride in some beautiful areas so I should really take some photos of them..

Mine was from a walk, not a bike ride. The ones I took yesterday when I went out on my bike were of the Tour De Yorkshire, but not particularly scenic ones.

I've just started cycling. This is from the New Forest a few weeks ago!

Cake is good too! 🍰

Please note the thread title is "Photos taken on your cycle", it's an inclusive thread for all kinds of photos, from cake to fly-tipping to bus shelters and traffic jams. It doesn't have to be pretty.

Keep posting smile

I found bluebells in a beech wood as well today.

I took these last summer when riding round our village with my youngest was a lovely evening and the light was gorgeous. One is the cider apple orchard that always blossoms really late and smells heavenly.

Unfortunately I won't be riding my bike for a little while as I came off it yesterday and can't bend my left knee. Yesterday was my first outdoor ride this year as well.

TheLongRider Mon 01-May-17 22:31:36

iamastonished I hope your knee heals quickly and that you'll be back pedalling around for the rest of the summer.

Iamastonished Mon 01-May-17 22:33:28

Thank you. It gave me quite a fright.

Sorry to hear about your fall Iamastonished, hope you are back on your bike soon.

Photos are fab. I should remind myself to stop more often to take photos. I tend to only do it when out with the boys.

Camel Trail a couple of miles outside Padstow last September.

This morning a couple of miles out of pateley bridge (on TDY route) I do stop frequently at the top of the big hills but am generally too focused on breathing to get my phone out.

Hope you heal quickly astonished.

I like this thread 😀.

I liked the old chat thread too, perhaps we could have one of those again. There were some really lovely people on it. I remember chopstheduck (I think) who was a bike ability instructor.

There were all sorts of folk on there, people like me who admire the view, proper speedy people, mountain bikers. All chatting about their cycling.

This week I would be saying that I am delighted to be back on my bike properly after a winter of illness but my seat bones are sore from riding too much too soon.

I have bought some new bars. I always knew mine were a bit narrow despite buying the right size for me on the chart (randonneur so narrower on the top than the drops). After squeezing my cleavage again this weekend I have taken the plunge and splurged on two sizes up, one down from DH's.

I sat on his bike yesterday to try his and almost needed winching off.

Ouch Iamastonished hope you're back on soon!

This is the last pic I took on a cycle, I was too hungry to take a pic before I ate the scone though grin it was a shorts and bare arms day, it was lovely.

Oooo, fab grin
My photo is somewhat out of remit as today was a run day (triathlon training at the moment) - I'm away with work so a nice early morning amble along the Berwickshire coastal path. Cycling day on Friday ... I will take my phone with me for a picture smile

FlaviaAlbia Wed 03-May-17 17:13:44

That is stunning sheepy!

sheepysheep Wed 03-May-17 20:01:06

It was lovely if a little bracing first thing - with the added bonus of saying I ran to Scotland and back this morning wink

I did not notice the forum this thread was in. This was not the thread i was expecting, although i also had no idea what to expect.
