First of all, further to my last post, Travis Freeman was hit in my neighborhood in March. He's in recovery - throw him a couple bucks to help with his medical bills. Seriously, what's $10 to you? That's like one artisanal hot dog with kimchi slaw. Just eat a plain weenie instead.
There's good news too - the City is going to expend some effort to improve the safety of Columbus roads for cyclists and pedestrians. You can help guide the City's efforts by participating in this survey.
The survey closes by April 23, so hurry up! I picked "c" for all my answers. It's an old scantron trick.

* Full disclosure, I have rocked the cycle mullet (tie and bike shoes) myself. But only mountain bike shoes, never road shoes. And never white shoes before labor day. I mean seriously, I'm not a monster.
And a lot of cyclists like the actual mullet, so it's a natural.

Fortunately, Stevil of All Hail the black Market is artistically gifted and was willing to help. The header above is cut from his original image:

Besides art, AHTBM is all about bikes, punk rock, and occasionally tennis balls. Stevil is also the purveyor of my favorite socks
and bike stickers.
. . . Welcome back. Where were we? Oh right, art.
Do you like art? I do. Do you like bikes? Me too. Perhaps you will like art about bikes. I don't know for sure though. Only you know that for sure.
There will be a bicycle poster art show in Columbus, hosted by various bike shops and bike-friendly places.

I am a fan of all of the aforementioned establishments. So go there and see the art. Support local artists and businesses. And for fuck's sake, ride your bike there. If you can't ride your bike to your local bike shop to view local bike art, well, I might just roshambo you.
Also, the city of Columbus is hosting the most bureaucratic bike art contest ever.
|I guarantee the winner will be a COGO bike with cow spots.|
Anyway, at least the Seagull bag is choice. I'm going to enter just for that. Here's my submission:
Your beer pairing:
Four Strings Brass Knuckle
A really nice local IPA. As far as beers go, this is just my cup of tea. Perfect for sunny Spring weather. And the owner's name is Dan. And he plays bass, so I promise he had a mullet at some point.
Go be brave!
