As you have probably noticed, the photos here are not always seasonal. For my monthly “favorites”, I pull from what’s been submitted to the Vélocouture group pool that month, but you can add a photo anytime you want, so sometimes we get some lovely summer photos in the dead of winter.

This time around, though, I noticed we have some nice wintry images to enjoy. In case you were wondering whether you can go by bike, in style, even in the cold and snow of winter, the contributors to Vélocouture would answer in the affirmative.

OK, that last one is clearly one of those “photo made in June and submitted in December.” But really, I couldn’t pass it up. Cheers folks, happy new year, and thanks for all of your wonderful submissions.
