    Bored with my current bland Windoze backdrop. Anyone suggest any good cycling related work-safe wallpapers please?

    Go into the web site of your favorite bicycle make and download the 'dream bike' you want, then make it into the wallpaper. Gives you a nice feeling everytime you log on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cheers Keith. I've done this in the past with photos of my own bikes too ;) :biggrin:.

    Also wondering if anyone has any slightly more 'yesteryear' cycling wallpapers. Some of the old manufacturers' posters I've seen are really atmospheric, but can you get them as computer wallpapers?

    The Cycling Plus web-site used to have cycling related wallpaper available - shots of mountain stages of the TdF sort of thing. I used to have one on my laptop. Don't know if they are still available, but may be worth a search.

    Here's some old ones I got some time ago from god knows where... will stretch a bit to screen size without too much loss of quality:

    I just use any cycling photos I see on the web and use those as and when I see them. pretty much any web image can be used.
    Currently I have a 'still' from that recent velodrome pile-up.
    Right click on picture, then 'set as background' or alternatively save image and use from there.

    Cheers. I had never worked out how to do that. Now I know. :biggrin:

    (I'll probably forget by next week ;))

    I love the Galibier in November one. I remember exactly that point in the Marmotte. (mostly because I was scared witless on the descent :biggrin:)

    I take it then that you took these yourself? ;)
    Even better still.
    Yes I agree that Galibier one looks fab.

    Would be great if the tour passed the huge tall bridge in south central France....is it called the Millau bridge????...cant remember...

    Longers, assuming you're a windows user, go to Microsoft's site and download the wallpaper changer "powertoy" - this should do it.
