    Default Views exclusive to two wheels

    Whenever I ride I always find myself coming across great views and landscapes that I wouldn't get to see if I wasn't riding. These can be on the MTB or the Roadie, in the city, in the bush or on a country road. Some of the sunsets I have seen are so amazing you just stop riding and watch them for a few minutes.

    What amazing landscapes/views have you come across while out on a ride? They don't have to be sunsets. As long as you've taken it while riding and it focusses on the scenery or view of the trail and not so much on the riding, post it up!

    Here are a few of mine so far.

    Thanks mate. That's the highest point on our local trails in Albury. Always gives amazing 360˚ views particularly at sunset, as you can see. Love stopping there before heading back towards civilisation :).

    Out at the lookout? Love that spot, was better before the table got burnt down. Grab a snack of the blueberry (or blackberry, some kind of berry) bush, then keep riding. :)

    Yep, trt-reece, at the lookout, great spot.

    When I first started MTBing and had a young baby I used to ride Narrow Neck at Katoomba twice a week at dawn in winter. Freezing cold but great views every morning and lots of solitude.

    These were from a particularly good morning with the "phantom falls" in fine form which you have to ride through.
