A Bike Without a Saddle

Well if you suffer from saddle sores, this bike may well be for you. It is a bike without a saddle, you just hang from the frame and propel yourself by scampering. Not the coolest posture trying to impress the opposite sex. Looks like this guy is speeding along, but I suspect it is on a flat or slightly downhill. I'd love to see him ride in the Yorkshire Pennines!

Bone Shaker Bicycle

A sculpture from Jud Turner, quite a dark side of cycling but not quite Gothic. Just reminds me of the original bicycle called the boneshaker, but in a quirky modern stance. More from Jud who kindly gave permission for this picture at this site

Tandem Width Ways

All I can say about this width way designed tandem is that it solves the problem of the stoker having their nose in the backside of the leader! Would be nice to see a couple of cyclists actually riding it though.

A True Tour Cyclist

Perhaps this is what tour cyclists look like if they showed their true colours. Tongue in cheek of course, (or perhaps not!) Just thought this picture was quite appropriate for for the last few decades. there should be two tour circuits one for clean cyclists and one for drugged up ones (no limits) - I know which I'd rather watch for entertainment!
