I think bicycles are one of the most pleasant forms of transportation and exercise.

I like the illustration above as a work of art.

Motobike that turns into a motosled! 1902

My favorite that I found on Flickr Commons is this bike that you can turn into a sled. Talk about ingenuity.

  1. I like the electric bike. Wheels have always fascinated mankind and continue to inspire new designs for bicycles.

  2. You know, that bike/sled is very unique…but I wonder about the traction on the back wheels in a slushy situation! Particularly like the cycling group, posting with their bikes in symmetry. Seems to fit with the pattern aspect of this week’s prompt.

  3. My ggrandfather who was in living in Melbourne was making bikes when they became motorized so his shop sold both motorized and nonmotorized cycles and then became a motor mechanic. It was a fascinating time. I love your photo entitled “Palace Emporium, New South Wales, 1899”
