    We saw this in Belgium, I think, in 2007. It was, as the sign says, along the Tour de France route.

    i think we got something here.



    on a side note, i took the title to mean art on a bike, and it got me to thinking about hippie bikes. i checked google for hippies on bikes and got nada. was expecting bikes that looked like painted up vw buses or lennon's rolls. no go. did hippies not ride? seems like bikes would have been perfect anti-establshment statements. of course, bikes are a much smaller canvas.

    We do!

    People are broad-minded. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater and even a newspaperman, but if a man doesn't drive, there's something wrong with him.

    Loving everything so far, but this thread should be marked "possibly NSFW" for woodcraft's pics.
