I decided to try something a little new and put together a Cycling Desktop Wallpaper Calendar. I got the inspiration from over at Smashing Magazine where graphic artists each month submit desktop wallpaper calendars for users to set as their desktop backgrounds. All of them are awesome but they rarely contain graphics or subjects that interest me. That said, I thought I would create my own using my meager photoshop skills.
Below is the cycling desktop wallpaper calendar I created for April 2009. April is the month of the Spring Cycling Classics so I focused the wallpapers theme around that. To the left of the calendar is this years dates for each of the cobbled and Ardennes races that make up the spring classics.
If you have suggestions, like it, would like to see future months, or hate it, please leave a comment below. The wallpaper’s size is 1024×768 because that’s what I use on my laptop. If there’s enough interest I’ll make some other sizes. Just click on the picture to get the full size.
