Anyone got any amazing cycling wall paper?

Postby TMR » Wed Jan 23, 2013 00:43 am

I've just got a new laptop with a 1920x1080 resolution. Can anyone point me in the direction of some quality wall paper?

Have you notices that two of those are from Video games, and as such look terrible?


I just use this one of Sky's website: Image

they have a good selection of other riders... leaves you a bit stuck if you're not a sky fan though.

I would recommend looking on British Cycling flickr page. If you like track photos.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/britishcycling/sets/
eg/.

Gruber flickr page is:

Some of the earlier ones are super his-res
eg/.

From: http://www.flickr.com/photos/smashred/s ... 537267084/

Looking through the shots its very difficult to ascertain which are high enough res to cover your entire screen but I wouldn't let that stop you using something smaller and having a white border. Personally I prefer that anyway so I can see my icons properly.

How about something classic - Gaul, Angel of the Mountains

Another few from Gruber:

ps. Jered Gruber has a website where you can purchase prints of all sizes.
http://gruberimages.squarespace.com/
http://www.wiggle.co.uk/gruber-images/
http://gruberimages.zenfolio.com/

Or you can just go for a Hincapie shot ; )

The Gruber shot for the Giro should fit your screen totally:

Use this one and tile it maybe?

ps. right click on the photos, copy image url, paste into new browser, then save to pc. Some of them go a little odd if you just right click, save straight from above.
