TaylorSimpson_MONIKER_fisheye_1.jpgBrownie Points for creativity: At risk of overexposing conceptual bicycle components today, Taylor Simpsons submission was too good not to post. "I originally came up with the concept of Moniker Cycle Horns," says Taylor," while participating in the World’s Longest Yard Sale on Route 127, in 2010, an event I look forward to every year. While traveling the sale, I found a pair of genuine deer antlers a local man was selling somewhere in Kentucky. As a cyclist I thought it would be clever to create bicycle handlebars made of animal horns and antlers."

Cyclist_in_London_009.jpgStrategic, non-partisan planning is needed to make Britain a nation of cyclists, experts tell a parliamentary inquiry. This also hold true for citizens of the United States looking forward to seeing their community in a bike friendly mode. "In the following article a lot of what the experts advised Parliament to consider was reported correctly. Another important facet is that the attitude of every Brit citizen has to be that bikes belong in the traffic mix. As long as most people consider bicycles To Be Not a viable vehicle, progress in advancing vehicular style cycling will continue to be dismissed." Terry Noble, a Recreational Facilities and Services Professional, from the Portland, Oregon Area.
