Finally some asphalt under the wheels again, after nearly a month on the rollers. I've been a whimp :|

Sorry 'bout the crappy photo's but there was just enough light. The colours were so much more beautiful during the ride. The photo's don't do them any justice.

Between Ravenstein and Grave, near the small village Keent. The bridge has only been put there a relatively short while ago. I can remember visiting this spot with my dad in my youth when the river was high. The people of the village had to be transported by boat. It was isolated very easily. It impressed me greatly as a kid.

In the woods between Herpen and Oss. It's called Herperduin and I mountainbike here as well.

Yup, winter sucks. Have to put on shoe covers.

Out of interest do you use the clip-ons for time trials, or just on solo rides for an extra hand position / more aerodynamics?

Time trials. Have a few weekend stage races coming up. Crit and ~10 mile TT on one day, RR on the other.

Thought I'd try and get some miles in on them before hand. Maybe my TT results will be a little less embarrassing.

Madera Stage Race or Merco by chance?

Is that the golf course behind the Banff Springs Hotel?

There is something special about a properly laid hedge! Such an art, and way better than barbed wire fencing! How sad am I.

The Lone Wolf (aka Dan) bling'd out his Lotus recently. There are 45,000 rhinestones per wheel, and an unknown quantity covering the frame, handlebars, and fork. The only parts left in tact are the vintage Campagnolo "Delta" brakes and the saddle.

Nope, that's Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario. Banff would have been nice though!

After admiring the photos posted in this thread for some time, I'm hoping to contribute a few images in the future. Here's my 1st iPhone try: got caught, unexpectedly, for an hour in a heavy wet snow in Madison County, Ohio. Landscapes to come in the future...
