Thank you for sharing your bike art, bike rock and other bicycle-related fun this week! Even more than usual (aw, thanks!), you’ve been sharing some very fun bicycle-themed video clips, images and songs that I am happy to pass along.
First things first, an SFBC shout out to our friend, Eddy. He’s been out of commission this week and we miss him. Rydel puts it better:
Toni F. found The Tailwinds, an Ohio group “born of bicycles, guitars, and having to stop on the roadside to quickly write down song lyrics before they’re forgotten” who play “Bike Rock, music inspired by the freedom, speed and balance of puttin’ power to the pedals.” Check out their lead singer’s lyrics and clips at BikeRockMusic.com.
Flavio posted this image from a poster you may have seen before – still makes us smile:
Flavio also shared this ‘bike dance’ clip from Quiksilver, the classic Kevin Bacon film about bike messengers in San Fran:
Raphael, Larry and Jeff keep talking about this week’s Wall Street Journal piece on Landis and doping in the Tour.
Meanwhile, Kathie is trying to get a handle on a Triathlon Obsession. (I hear those things only get worse).
Dan Gutierrez is all about the ‘internet meme‘, creating this one to remind us that more bicyclists fall because they are riding in the gutter than when they ride with traffic, in the traffic lane.
And since today is, after all, Independence Day: Here is a photo from EcoVelo that JJ shared, calling it “Mother Nature’s Fireworks.”
Thanks to everyone for emailing, posting, sharing your favorite bicycle-themed finds. We love getting them and hope to regularly post them here in a weekly recap. Email, Direct Tweet or Post them to Facebook (please).
