I don’t have many old pictures related to cycling, so this month’s challenge is, well, a challenge. I do, however, have some recent before and after pictures from nearby. Taken on bike rides but not showing bikes so not really an entry.
The above is my shortest “standard” ride. It’s 15 kilometres that can be fitted in easily and includes some hill climbing and travels through local countryside.
At about the 10 kilometre mark there was this:
I took the above picture back in 2014 soon after purchasing my Vivente touring bike. It had pedals with one side flat and clip in on the other. I was trying clip ins the first time, saw this picture, stopped to take it, didn’t unclip, fell and cracked at least one rib. But still took the picture before wobbling off home. I remember it well !
I suspect the landowner wanted to remove the house and extend the pivot irrigator’s path.
