Back a bit ago I was stumbling around Garmin’s site trying to find something or other and I bumped into their nifty collection of wallpapers that you can download. From there I got curious and started poking around other companies and tri sites trying (err…tri-ing) to put together a little pile of them. After quite a bit of searching, I found all sorts of great wallpapers.
I went directly to the source for all of these, as many times you’ll get crappy 3rd party sites with backgrounds and such and all sorts of garbage on them. So the list below is only where the main sponsor of the site hosts the files themselves.
I’ve gone ahead and linked directly to the sites main wallpaper page in each case, so you can go there and download all the super-duper-high-resolution files directly from them. I’ve also gone ahead and included a preview pic or two from their collection as a hint of what’s beyond the link.
I think the Cervelo Test Team folks just barely outrank Garmin with respect to their wallpapers. Mostly just due to more action shots.
Garmin has a wide variety of stuff, with everything from swim & running wallpapers to those covering the professional cycling team – Team Garmin. They release them quarterly in sets, so here’s the key albums you’ll want:
They have a bit of a smaller collection, though they do offer some more exposed wallpapers as well, which may appeal to certain male audiences. They also cover everything from beach cruisers to mountain bikes:
This French website has a ton of great and free downloadable shots. And the best part about pictures…you don’t even need to understand French!
Of course, I’m sure everyone out there has tons of great suggestions that I haven’t unearthed, so feel free to add links to the list below. The only favor I ask is that you ensure the links aren’t R rated (meaning they would not be classified as ‘NSFW’). Not that I wouldn’t welcome such links…but, ya know.
Hope your week is moving along nicely! It’s almost Friday, woot!!
You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
