    Ha - some worthy early entries there - lots of variables to play with - the design/type/state of decay of gate, what's behind the gate, and the rakish angle of the bike, for starters.

    I'm wondering if photos should be assessed using a BIFOG (Bike In Front Of Gate) mark scheme. In particular, I think bonus marks could be awarded for outstanding or unusual gates (hand-made, old, standing up despite decrepitude, etc.), and gates in unique/unusual places or with great views. I can be easily bribed. (Cake normally does the trick.)

    Either you've been very assiduous having seen this thread, or you already had a thing about gates...

    i started taking pictures of bikes in gateways about 6 weeks ago after stopping on a ride and slotted the bike in the gate whilst i did some running adjustments , i try to take one every ride if i see a nice set of gates or a nice view behind them
