#mycyclingweekend - Shoot for the sky

Pristine skies over wide vistas, stormy skies over deep valleys, sunrises over beach roads, and sunsets over housing estates, share whatever you're cycling under with us...

The resemblance between today's #mycyclingweekend lead image and a famous Shawshank Redemption scene is no coincidence. Along with Cycle Surgery, this weekend we're celebrating freedom, specifically the freedom zipping about on our bikes gives us.

Freedom means a lot of things to a lot of people, but today we're looking to the sky. At this time of year we'll frequently see a variety of dramatic skylines. We'll see the beautifully clear, crisp skies that we only ever get on wintry mornings, we'll see stormy skies, and sadly the occasional (read: frequent) bland, grey featureless expanse.

Getting a great #mycyclingweekend shot of the sky when you're out on your weekend ride isn't totally dependent on a dramatic clouds or beautiful colours.

The shot we've featured as today's lead image features a reasonably bland skyline, but the tree and the features of the shot add up to a great photo. Though, there's a distinct lack of bicycle. In our opinion anyway.

Adrian_0014's shot does manage to tick all the boxes - this is what we're looking for. Though we'll understand if you can't find any alps to include.



I'm gonna miss you #NewToys

Remember, though, it's super important that you include both the #mycyclingweekend and #CycleSurgery hashtags in your tweet or Instagram post.

Happy riding!
