Logo will go on the top of the page as you can see in the pictures attached. The logo will go on top of a background picture in the white box that changes with the seasons (eg summer will have a mountain or a forest road, winter will have snow or rain, etc.). It can be a little bigger or smaller than the box (I can adjust it), so do what you think is right.
I am looking for a logo that I can use on various parts of the site, on a future e-book, ads, and just about anything else I will need in the future. If it helps, the site will also have a blog in the future. I would like it to be on a transparent background as well so that I may re-use it when I change the background picture for the season. I want it to have a somewhat, but not overly detailed picture of a geared up rider or two on a sport bike, but if you think of something good I am open to it.
I want the logo to convey knowledge/learning and freedom as users envision themselves on the bike. As stated above, it is geared towards beginning and intermediate riders, and maybe those who are getting back on a bike again after a long while. I would like the color scheme to mostly match the rest of the site (black, red, gray, white) but to have a hint of contrast to make the logo attract attention (maybe blue or green done tastefully).
It is a lot of things to ask for, but I wanted to be as specific as possible. Thank you in advance for your efforts! :)
