    You might have or may have had one of these. I saw them in the back of bike mechanics shops and college dorms through the 70's and early 80's.

    It depicted a group of women, clad only in cycling shoes or maybe an occasional cycling cap or leather helmet and mounting 10 spds, preparing for a race.

    Where is it from?
    I'm told it's from a record album( a record is a flat piece of grooved plastic that makes music).

    Is it from a Queen album?

    HA! Thanx Mike! Didn't we date ourselves? Never a big Queen fan, but remember the radio ads with cuts from"Fat Bottom Girls"-"Get on your bikes and ride!" and "I want to ride my bicycle", so I figured it was that one.

    I'll try to download the image to a printer and hang it over my 10-oops-12 spd, but that failing, I wonder where one can still get it?

    BTW-What album?

    I still don't even have a CD player. The needle on my phonograph tore the heck out of one and then it broke when I folded it to fit in my 8 track. Too bad, it was Chicago V.

    Yup. That's the one. My aunt got me the original Jazz album for Christmas--massively family gift exchange--and the time of the present opening was the last time I saw my poster. Dad took it. I was in 8th grade at the time.

    Subsequent releases of the album were changed so that the poster wasn't included. Bastards.
