If the only light you see all day is from a monitor and the gloom outside is getting you down when you do venture out, then we’ve got something that’ll make your desktop a much happier place.
Fresh from the cover of Issue 76, we’ve got Sam Needham’s cracking shot from the Yorkshire Dales for you to download and use as wallpaper. Because we’re forward thinking types, there’s even an iPad friendly version.
“Despite the Yorkshire Dales being on my doorstep, I have rarely spun two wheels over its rolling, limestone-scattered hillocks. So in light of Yorkshire (I mean Team GB’s) success at the London Olympics and the prospect of Yorkshire turning yellow for a future Tour stage, Jon Hopkinson, Sam Flannigan and myself took to the Dales on a mission of discovery. You may note that this photo proves a few old wives tales wrong. One, that the UK has got some sunshine in 2012; two, that XC racer Jon Hopkinson isn’t allergic to baggy cycling attire and three, that the Yorkshire Dales is a great place to turn a wheel or two over.”
