I've seen lots of interesting outside clocks on my bike rides, so for your next challenge please take a picture of your bike and :

Clocks and anything else on the theme of Time.

I'll give you plenty of 'time '! Closing date Monday 12th November.

Looking forward to your pictures.

Right.. I've slept on it, and the new challenge shall be 'Sky'.
Be it dramatic clouds, or pure blue, the photograph must contain a bike, or part thereof.
Closing date is December 5th.

Sorry but I couldn’t resist it, definitely NOT within the rules, taken on Whinlatter at the TOB this year
One from today with some vivid colour from the foliage and the sky.:

Love the pic, but I'd be judging it on the BSA, not the sky!

But, my favourite pic in this competition is..... An international winner.

@FolderBeholder for this great photo.

:smile:
 
OK...after MUCH deliberation....let’s see your bikes “indoors” at a public location.
Shall we close the year off with this one....say Dec 31 is closing date?

I’ll start (and recuse my entry from consideration)

I had a bike ride today ^_^
I didn't pass anywhere that was open that I could take my bike in.

Anyway the closing date was yesterday.
Do we have a winner @FolderBeholder ?

However , just for fun, I offer you my late entry for the sky challenge :
I enjoyed a display of Canada geese flying over, changing the shape and direction of their formation several times before disappearing.

While they are all winners, I’m partial to this shot....I shall proclaim this one the WINNER!

Something that's broken, like this signpost that used to point towards Castle Ashby.

Usual rules apply. Bike, or part thereof, must be in the photograph, and be taken in the time frame of the completion.

End date shall be 26th of February.

Not too many entries to judge this time. . It's not really riding weather at the moment, I suppose!
Nice to see @Katherine back in the saddle :smile:

The winner this time is @biggs682 with this entry.

At last I won something .

Seeing as February is Valentine's month and red is the colour associated with love , let's see something bike related and something red . Ideally with a picture taken during this time period.

Ie my Hercules in front of 2 red doors .

Congratulations to Jenkins who took this amazing picture which I have decided is this month's winner of the photo challenge on the theme of 'Blue'. I particularly like the composition and the way your eyes are drawn to ship at the centre of the picture.

Thank you to all of those of you who entered the challenge. I studied all of your pictures carefully and found it difficult in choosing a winner.

I've decided that the challenge for April should be one close to most cyclists' hearts - Food & Drink.

Whether it's a picture of your bike outside your favourite café stop, overloaded with shopping, an artistically placed cup of tea on the handlebars, or your pub bike doing it's job, just go for a ride, take a picture and (most importantly) have fun.

Usual rules apply and the winner should be announced on the 30th April.

Thanks to all for taking part and I have decided on a winner. Congratulations to @Katherine for her Barnshaw Smithy cafe stop pictures. The bright colours and hint of sunshine were in complete contrast to the grey, damp & bitterly cold day I'd had at Brands Hatch, although I'm not too sure about the green stuff in the waterbottle in the 3rd picture :laugh:
Coffee and a rather wonderful piece of coconut, lemon and blueberry cake at Barnshaw Smithy cafe, between Ashley and Mobberley.

I bought a piece of chocolate brownie at the cafe which I enjoyed at the bus stop before Warburton Bridge.

Special mentions to @kapelmuur for his shopping essentials and @PeteXXX for the traditional ice cream shot.

Over to Katherine for next month's competition theme.
