Mini Challenge # 319: Bicycles

pegellipegelli Major grinsBelgiumRegistered Users Posts: 7,193 Major grins

Looking through the list of previous mini's I noticed that so far we have missed a very popular and easy subject and that is "Bicycles".
And I propose for this mini to interpret the term bicycle quite liberally, so tricycles (or quadrocycles or even more wheels) are fine as well as long they're driven by leg or arm muscle power. Battery assisted is fine but no mopeds or motorcycles. It also can be bicycles close-up or as a part of a larger scene. Also working order or a wreck is not important.

Here's a few of my attempts to inspire you, but don't feel limited by these examples

Looking forward what you can show me on this theme, good luck!
This mini will be open for ~2,5 weeks and close on Thursday June 17 at noon (NWE time)

And if you haven't participated before, please take a look at the un-official rules here: https://dgrin.com/discussion/248032/mini-challenge-un-official-rules#latest

    Here are my meager entries. I don't have a lot of bicycle shots, but anxious to see everyone's!

    1) Reno Police on bicycles (with Hot August Nights security patrol in front)

    2) Redding Kool April NItes car cruise - the spectator crowd who came on bicycles.

    3) Amgen Tour Race - one of six King of the Mountain climbs of the race. These guys were the fun precursor to the race - locals with the aim of completing the climb.

    Not for the mini, but here are the leaders and the Peloton of the same race - different body structures than the precursors!

    Pieter, you knew you had me on this one! :smiley: Please don't consider these as entries, though, as we'll be traveling for a month starting next weekend (and of course we'll have our bikes along!).

    1) On my first multi-day tour, the picnic site on my first day.

    2) Dolomites Bike Day 2019, hard to believe it, but I made it up this "hill" (with a few rest stops along the way)

    3) On one bike trip through Paris, these friendly cycle cops escorted us down the Champs Elysées

    1. First tricycle
    2. Bermuda bike rental shop
    3. Amsterdam pedicab driver

    When I was in college, everyone rode bikes around campus - except in the winter when we walked.

    Done! Last I heard was that vanilla found the bug and was working on it. That was a couple days ago I heard that. :/

    Thanks Joyce, seeing the photo's makes judging a whole lot easier.

    It's taking Vanilla an awful long time to fix the problem, it seems to be moving as fast as a snail slowing down before taking a corner :p

    As of this morning, it looks like they fixed it. Although clicking on a linked image goes to a warning page now vs directly to the origins of the image. At least we can post with less clicks again.

    That's crazy, even right clicking the image and choosing "open in a new tab" brings up this page while in actual fact you're not leaving Dgrin. Not an improvement I would say :/
