I was thinking “Weapons Expert. Poor Impulse Control. Rides a bike.”, but realized that’s probably not the intended tone.

If you want to set the tone not to be messed with, think you need to do it by carrying something conspicuous on your back.

Was just looking for an image of how to carry bow and arrow properly over the shoulder, something like the bottom right corner of this:

But also came across this, and in spite of a personal distaste for hunting, I have to call it the grand prize winner:

Jon’s image makes me wonder about the terrestrial version of the winter biathlon. Does not exist…… yet!

Errr… what I mean to say was… hmmm… Does not exist that I am aware of, but it should!

Thanks for bringing that to my attention, Mikail! Is that another thing pampered European (or Eurasian) cyclists get? I have never heard of this activity on our continent- but it would not surprise me if it was done in Canada.

Those are great! Keep them coming. We’re 30% of the way to our goal. If you haven’t yet, please donate todayand share this short link with all of your friends: http://igg.me/at/bikepghcares

We need to take the message to the people who drive that we are also people and deserve to be treated as such! The more they see these messages, the more drivers will internalize them and the dynamics of riding on the roads will improve for everyone.

@becca, so your theory is that people knowing you like to make puns will make them less likely to run you down?

Yes! Everyone needs a little levity in their day. And if they’re close enough to read the spoke card then I’m probably stopped and making them chuckle…

Starting to see the ad buys on PAT buses. Saw the lawyer one on a 71A that stopped Downtown in front of a crowded bus stop, and another on a P1, I think. Good to see where the $ is going.
