Bicycle/CDP Theme Day

What's he looking at?

August 1st is City Daily Photo Theme Day. This month the theme is BICYCLE.

The top  photo was taken at the harbour in Whitby, which has earned the distinction of being a bicycle friendly town because it is currently building bicycle lanes alongside busy roads. 

Father and son

Father and son are walking their bicycles along a boardwalk in Aurora as the signs on both ends ask riders to do. Kudos to this dad for obeying the signs! (Not everyone does.)

Pink bikes/pink jackets

Two girls have abandoned their bikes for a few minutes to hunt for pretty pebbles on the shore.

Have to agree with Tex, love the middle shot!! You always get the best "people" shots -- well, actually you get the best shots PERIOD!!! Hope you have a great weekend! Enjoy!!

Kay said...

I like the dad and son, too, though the study in pinks is sweet.

Barb said...

I'm in favor of bike lanes! Looks like even the children are having fun getting around on the bikes.

Randy said...

Neat theme! I like the father son shot! Have a happy weekend!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Grand variety of colourful bikes. Yes. We have quite a large number of safety bike lines on my peninsula. Many bike challenges are run here.

This was a fun theme for the City people! We don't get too many bicyclists waaaaay out in the boonies and I'm enjoying looking at all the contributions.

Kate said...

The top photo show very different modes of transportation.

I wish every place had bike lanes...

This really looks like a nice place. I get the feeling of friendliness.

Lovely takes for the theme!

I'll choose water sports and spray in the face over pedaling.

William Kendall said...

Good choices, EG. The first one's my favourite.

Joan Perry said...

Lovely! Bikes always add nice action to a shot!

Denton Harryman said...

very nice .. at first I liked the father and son photo the best but on reflection I think the photo of the pinks bicycles is the most artistic.

Judy said...

You found three great shots for the bicycle theme! I wonder if that guy is wishing he was boating instead of bicycling.

RedPat said...

I love all three, EG!

Julie said...

Lovely shots of ordinary folks out and about with bikes. Good to see, Tina.

Three great bike photos! Cities around the world seem to be becoming increasingly bike-friendly. It's a good sign.

When you mentioned Whitby, for a moment I thought you were talking about England. Of course that's not right but it did catch my attention. Lovely shots for theme day.
