In lieu of a proper blog about the shenanigans at 2015 edition of La Vuelta, for example various members of the Tinkoff-Saxo squad, most notably Peter Sagan, being struck by motorcycles and Chris Froome breaking his ankle, I thought I would provide another infographic. Its been liberated from the rather wonderful RCUK’s Infographic Guide to Cycling . I’ve provided the link to Amazon as shameless plug, hopefully, to ward off legal action for a blatant breach of copyright.
Woo…woo…here comes the Skytrain…
Here at marvmadethis.com, we’ve long identified that infographics are the preferred communication media of the attention/literacy challenged Gen Y. For those of us not in that underachieving demographic, infographics occasionally capture something useful or entertaining.
The illustration above does both, showing how Team Sky propel their GC rider, Chris Froome, along in a mountain stage. By keeping the tempo high, they attempt to prevent attacks from less well supported climbers, for example Alberto Contador.
I’m not sure which one of these was meant to Richie Porte 😉
In lieu of writing a proper blog this week, I thought I would share this infographic that appeared on the Peloton Magazine Twitter stream a few hours ago. You can find it here: https://twitter.com/pelotonmagazine
However, this seems to be a case of ‘light-fingered-ness’ on someone’s part, as the original can be found here http://www.cyclingcartoons.com/ is originally drawn by Dave Walker. Credit should be given were credit is due. This has now become my new favourite cycling website 🙂
Occasionally, I read articles in the mainstream press about relative merits of cars vs bicycles as a means of commuting. Inevitably cars win regardless of the merits of short range bicycle commuting or mixed mode using public transport. Then I find something like this on the Internet that convinces me that we really aren’t trying hard enough 🙂
