This morning, Josh and I were interviewed about the upcoming Bike to Work Week on a local radio station. On the way back from the station, I noticed these car-shaped bike racks next to a picnic area along the multi-use path that follows Route 66 through Flagstaff.
It’s a great homage to The Mother Road, an icon to American car culture. But I’d like to think that the artist who designed this, or the bureaucrat who approved it saw a little irony.
We were fighting a 40 miles-per-hour headwind, and neither of us were too proud to use the electric assist of the e-bikes.
I’ll have photos and video of the radio interview up soon.
