What counts as a bicycle selfie photo?

A photo taken by yourself, or by a friend family member, or photographer (remember to make you have permission to share a photo that was taken by someone else) of you and/or your bicycle and/or something that you can relate back to bicycling (if you don’t have a bicycle to photograph), such as an empty road, bike trail, drawing of a bicycle, etc. Get creative with it!
