More reasons why everyone should cycle more…

Dear Rouleurs,

MMT has been a busy, busy boy since his last blog in late last month.  A brief cold, trip to Perth, progressively increasing work and his daughter’s second birthday have all been massive distractions to the serious work of blogging.  Those factors have also meant quite a bit less cycling than he would of liked.

Nevertheless, this is a lame attempt at doing a quick blog on the subject of infographics.  This one is sourced from the US via the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition.

Its an effective sales pitch. MMT is feeling a little jipped, He hasn’t lost the 13lbs these guys claim that a commuter would lose.  Mind you that probably has a lot to do with MMT’s love of milk based coffee and the chocolates his wife keeps in the fridge 😉

Until next time, ride safe

Another cycling infographic, Thanks Chain Reaction

Dear Rouleurs,

Work has been ridiculousily busy with a never ending stream of meetings.  TUnfortunately this doesn’t leave alot of time for blogging and skiving off.  Alas, the joys of having a new role in new org structure that is finding its way.  Nevertheless, MMT saw this wonderful, if somewhat self serving infographic on FLAB Facebook the other day, and thought that it was worth sharing.  The original can be found here, please don’t sue me Chain Reaction 😉

The obvious message is that cycling is good for you, go ride.

Until next time, ride safe

Cycling Hand Signals from our friends in Copenhagen

Dear Rouleurs,

It has been a while since MMT posted a good cycling infographic. Happily, MMT stumbled across one, yesterday, in the FLAB group on Facebook. Some FLABer must have seen it on Twitter. As a happy plagiarist, MMT provides a link to the original content here Copenhagen Cycling Signals. MMT particularly likes the disapproval and bike stolen signals.

Until next time, ride safe.

MMT.

An early Merry Christmas from MMT

Dear Rouleurs,

I’ve been blessed with a few quiet minutes to knock another blog for December.  Given that’s its nearly Christmas and I’m about to receive an early and very special delivery from Santa, it seemed like a good idea to put together a bicycle related montage.  So here’s a bunch of random photos and graphics pilfered from the plagiarist’s greatest resource… the Internet.

Noooo...this will not happen while I'm not holiday.

Its so ugly and wrong, that I'm surprised my wife hasn't given me one of these jerseys.

It seems to me both weird and wonderful that a nation like Japan would embrace Santa and bicycling, let alone put them together.

This one reminds me of the new Campag chain ring I put on my bike back in February.

I wish I could find out who created this infographic so I could give them credit.

I will be posting photos of my special delivery from Santa later this week.  Until then ride safe.
