We asked you to show us your colours this #mycyclingweekend, one of you showed us the best colours in the world!

This #mycyclingweekend, in a post-general election haze, we asked you to show us your true colours.

No, we didn't have a political agenda. We weren't interested in your political leanings or trying to expose any interesting political perspectives among our reader base.

Far from it. All we wanted was for you to send us colourful pictures! You can put your pitchforks away.

Fortunately, you lot sent us some lovely colourful pictures. One Instagram user, Paulina Pintof got a snap of the world champion's colours.

Peter Sagan spent the weekend competing at the Tour of Switzerland, which is where Paulina caught this photo.



Of course, your colourful shots came from all sorts of other places.

Jim Cooper took a red and yellow trip to The Shack, while Instagram user @vincentdr caught this asphalt photo of a gravelly factory.





Kirk Pedrick's deep burgundy shot of his pre-ride jersey also got our ride-y senses tingling, while @v4honda's blue and broken frame sent shivers down our spines.





Meanwhile, Twitter user The Ranty Highwayman had a glorious ride - by the looks of it - with a couple of children in his trailer.



Remember, it's never too late to get involved in the #mycyclingweekend fun! Just upload a photo of your ride to Instagram or Twitter and remember to include the #mycyclingweekend hashtag!

There's a pair of road.cc socks in it for you!


Elliot joined team road.cc bright eyed, bushy tailed, and straight out of university.

Raised in front of cathode ray tube screens bearing the images of Miguel Indurain and Lance Armstrong, Elliot's always had cycling in his veins.
His balance was found on a Y-framed mountain bike around South London suburbs in the 90s, while his first taste of freedom came when he claimed his father's Giant hybrid as his own at age 16.

When Elliot's not writing for road.cc about two-wheeled sustainable transportation, he's focussing on business sustainability and the challenges facing our planet in the years to come.
