Photo of the Day Wednesday 29th August 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day…” A fool and his money are soon elected.”
The theme for the photo today is Speed & Power. I like this photo because it is an action shot, and a shot that shows power, speed and determination. The background is not perfect, but the photo does capture the moment so well. It was taken on the island of Madeira, in the capital, Funchal. An interesting fact about bicycles is that half of the parts are in the chain. The fastest speed ever recorded on a bicycle was attained by American Olympic Cyclist and Ironman triathlon competitor John Howard, when he reached 152.2 mph or 245km/h in 1985. Before 1869, bicycle tyres were made of iron, although clearly the cyclist in this photo has got some good tyres !!
Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel in Norefjell,
