It’s great to see all the commuters out on the Burke these days, but it’s even greater to see folks riding in their regular clothes, copenhagen style. This cyclist manages to pull it off with an unusual amount of panache for the great pacific northwest, goodonya says I.
You may have passed or been passed by this Bike Battleship on the path, the road, or anywhere else. Possibly seen the long, tall, lanky gent riding it and wondered maybe WTF it was or even why it was …
It’s the Dread Nought – a bike battleship built for transportation and to take on any motorized vehicle that crosses it. With a horn that’ll clear a 520 traffic jam (and I suspect a system to throw darts or other medieval-inspired weaponry), Val gets where he’s going on this bad boy. And nothing is stopping him.
Testing the new Basil Wicker Basket on Bettie, we plopped Cap’n the Studio Pug right into it. While she obliged us, the look on her face, indicated she wasn’t that thrilled … .
Basil baskets are available at your local bike shop – another basket bike shot here and more on Flickr.
I found this time lapse photography video, of a Surly Big Dummy being built up from the frame and then ridden, (and surfed.) The whole thing is set to some Zen cycling music. Enjoy!
