Umm.. odd request. Looking for a large poster for indoor trainer room. Alps, bike race on cobbles. Realistic looking.

Not sure how to word it, but looking for a large background poster of a road through a mountain pass, maybe with other riders on it. Maybe a large grab of a race through a classics street, but blown up. Side on..

You can maybe guess what I'm sort of going for here, I'm not great with arty descriptions :lol:

Some rough examples, though not up the standard I'm looking for: (need better composition, quality, etc)

Nice guys!

Also got a cracking search term 'mural' for it. Got lots of ideas now. Actually leaning towards greenery now - like a forest backdrop :shock:

Love this, I wanted to wrap one of our garage walls in something similar. Keep the images and ideas coming ;)

I remember years ago when that photograph was on the cover of the Palo Alto Bicycle catalogue- I wish I hadn't thrown that out!

Society Six sells wall tapestries. I've got a couple hanging in my house.

Something like this?

Or make your own account, upload a hi res image you want, and buy it yourself.

Thanks for suggesting Wallsauce!

If you tell me a little bit more about what you are looking for, I can make some suggestions for you. We have quite a few bicycle/ cycling murals and a huge choice of greenery. You might also be interested in some motivational images, such as mountain peaks and hills: https://www.wallsauce.com/wall-murals/photo-wallpaper/landscapes/mountains/

Two popular cycling murals are: https://www.wallsauce.com/wall-murals/designer-wall-murals/1x/mountain-biker- and https://www.wallsauce.com/wall-murals/photo-wallpaper/cities/cam-river-walkway-with-bicycle.

We can also turn any image that you own into a wall mural. See this link for more info: https://www.wallsauce.com/upload-your-own/

I hope you find what you're looking for and we're here if you need inspiration! :D

I see that you are an old geezer too. :-) I loved those catalogs.

With the exception of the B&W one (sorry!), these are fantastic images. Forget training in the basement, these make me want to watch bike races in th basement.

I've got my eye on a non-cycling mural for my basement. Not that you care, but I want Jimmy Cooper on a Lambretta scooter. Check out this seller: http://stores.ebay.com/CENTRAL-GRAPHICS ... 7675.l2563

I snagged this bad boy within my first few days of arriving in the greater Palo Alto area - sans bike.
