Just for fun: Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge

BikesforHireDC

Just because I happened to be looking at pictures of scooters when I read about it, I’m joining in with Cee’s Fun Photo Challenge this week. Bet you can’t guess what the prompt is?

You can?

Oh. You’re right of course. It’s Bikes and Motorcycles.

The photo at the top was taken in Washington DC. A row of public rental bikes waits for customers. It’s a subscription scheme, I believe, so you have to sign up and use your card each time you want to take a bike. Short journeys only, please!

These aren’t for hire. This is a normal street scene you can find in pretty much any Italian town anywhere. The roads are narrow and parking is at a premium, so scooters, motorbikes and bicycles are extremely popular. This was taken in Modena.

Next up is a rather lovely machine spotted in a car park somewhere – I can’t even remember where, now, but it struck me as worthy of a photo. I mean, well, it’s purple!!

And lastly, two scooters parked up neatly in a corner of a town in Italy. This time it’s Urbino, Le Marche. It’s a gorgeous place, but some of the streets are nearly vertical, so I admire the bravery of the riders!

      Thanks, Deborah! It was pure coincidence that I had those photos handy!

    For people traveling, a bike rental would be really cool! I’ve always secretly dreamed of owning a pink Vespa!

      I was almost tempted by the bike rental, but OH was not!

      We both used to ride motorbikes. I’ve never had a scooter, or ridden one – only ridden pillion on one. However, OH thinks a scooter rental would provide us with a really good alternative to a cycle rental!

    Gone are the days when I rode two wheels, bicycle and motor cycle, but I can still remember the euphoria when I rode with winds and rain… smiles.

      Me too. I gave most of my motorcycle gear away a few years ago, when my back started playing up and I was sleeping so badly that I was practically falling asleep during the day. NOT a good idea on two wheels, powered or not.

    Synchronicity 0 I was just saying today that I need to get rid of my motorcycle helmet!

      I still have one somewhere to dispose of …
