One of my co-workers sent a link to me showing bars for stopped cyclists to lean on, in Copenhagen. It made me very happy, because it assumes:
– People are riding bicycles in the city,
– People are stopping at red lights, and
– People are fitted properly to their bicycles so that their feet don’t reach the ground when they’re stopped.
I’ve always said that if you give people things, they will ask for more. I proved this true myself: What about tall bikes? It’s even more crucial to have something to lean on when those are stopped. Imagine a city of tall bikes as main mode of transportation. Sweet!
In other news, on my ride into work today I saw a pretty Asian woman battling her adorable medium-sized black lab in on the Boston Common. I think some words like “Bad Dog!” “Behave!” and “No!” were shouted in Cantonese while the very happy/excited doggy dragged the owner around by the leash. It was rather entertaining.
