Some bikes are just too cool. Like a bike that's actually a bar. Imagine your favor sports pub, on wheels, with you and a group of friends pedaling away down the street, drink in hand.
And some bike news is just too weird. Like this selections of stories that were recently featured on news sites:
Mass. cyclist attacked by man swinging sausages And if the sausage wasn't bad enough, there was also a wrench involved. No word about any peppers or onions.
Ariz. man arrested for making citizen's arrest Cyclist Karl "Jack" Frost is not a good sharer. And he appears to have a special dislike for joggers.
Bike thrown from I-75 overpass strike motorists Nothing wakes you out of the daze of your morning commute like a BMX bike through the windshield. Especially in the winter.
Naked unicyclist charged for distracting drivers For this biker, the feeling of the wind whipping through his, um ... nether region is worth a charge of $1,500 for indecent exposure.
