It’s probably obvious that I have quite an affection for bicycles, from the inclusion of the word in this blog’s title, to the bicycle the fish is riding in the header art (courtesy of Holly Berry, who I haven’t thanked in a while for letting me use her work), and some posts I’ve published specifically on the subject (Pedal Power, Learn To Speak Bicycle, Goin’ Calorie Neutral).
Well, just in time for spring, my spine is finally allowing me to get back on my bicycle after a painfully long abstinence, and I can’t say enough about how much it improves my mood. Getting around town under my own power, adding no more carbon to the atmosphere than the carbon dioxide I exhale, feeling the wind in my face as I speed down a hill and the satisfaction of making it to the top of another, well, I just love it.
So, for today’s edition of Video Fridays, in celebration of my beloved bicycle, I’m including two videos. The first, courtesy of a friend who posted it on Facebook, is a brilliantly concise explanation of the value of dedicated bicycle lanes, and, on the lighter side, the second is a NSFW video of an old and relevant Queen song.
Happy Friday, everyone!
