Some interesting bike-related things

photo 2-16I love this lego-inspired smiley face painted on a concrete pier near the Kotara bike track. It was done so well …. I say “done” because it has unfortunately now been painted over. Such is the ephemeral nature of street art. But while it was there, it added a cheery feel to the ride to Westfield Kotara.

    Unfortunately the pump stations wouldn’t last too long in Beaumont St thanks to the drunks from the Kent who like to do their bit for society.

    I looked into these pumps from one overseas supplier. They were something like $700 because they are vandal resistant stainless steel. What do people think about getting corporate sponsership for them. “This pump is proadly supplied by your local MacDonalds resturant. Keep riding and burn off all that fat you’ve just eaten.” Surely we could get a local manufacturing firm to knock them up much cheaper.

    They would be great along the Warners Bay foreshore path, and either end of the Fernleigh.
