Now, some hardcore riders may be displeased by aspects of this image of mine, sticklers for 'true-to-life' depictions of riding as many of you are! However, realism be damned in this case, I'm afraid.
I intended this piece to be evocative of riding, but in the context of dreams, and emotions, rather than the physical realities of biking. I know that the bike pictured would not be carving up some of the same trails mentioned, for instance. Although, if I saw someone riding one like this on the trails at Forrest - big props for the attempt!
And yes, I have used the same image as my website splash page. Nothing like keeping what you care about front and centre during your work day. Great inspiration!
