    Anti-car cartoons

    I bungled on to this one amusing cartoon and had a hunch the cartoonist was a cyclist or something. I was proven right when I hunted down more of this cartoonist's pieces. Apparently Car-Free Time compiled a book of anti-car cartoons and this guy contributed some of his work. The cartoonist's name is Andy Singer. Some of his cartoons are strange. There are a few gems here and there if you dig.

    Urban Cycling Vocabulary
    Foreplay The efforts of a cyclist to locate and trigger buried sensors under the pavement that will cause the traffic light at an intersection to turn green. Like the real thing, occasionally there is no result from this activity, despite most sincere efforts.
    High A lateral position on a street more toward the center line. I.E., If you look like you are leading a funeral procession of slow moving cars, you are probably positioned too "high."

    I've seen Andy Singer's work before. The one with the cager yelling at the smoker standing on the street corner is the one I especially like.

    --- Not a cartoon, here's an actual photograph of a motorist being stopped by a bicycle cop:

    70s Bottechia turned into a single speed, a Novarra for long distance, and several tall, stretched, and chopper bikes.

    Yeah, andy is pretty nationally sindicated. We are actually bringing him to Pittsburgh on Thursday and Friday to do a Slide show and show off some of his work.
