There is an art to life. When this entity (Phantom Culture) isn't immortalizing musicians or doing other projects, like creating the world's largest walk-by art exhibit (The Phantom Art Gallery - subsequently imitated by major cities across North America), it is involved in things that bring hope and happiness. One such activity is recycling scrap bikes into the stuff dreams are made of for poor and at-risk children. Whoever thinks starving artists can't change the world are less than with it.
In the summer of 2013, The Phantom Director, who certainly ranks as a starving artist, rebuilt over 45 bicycles for kids and handicapped adults - and gave them away. The Bicycle Recycle Project is just one more example of - we do what we want because no one said we couldn't. At times, this intrepid artist would go hungry so he could afford to buy replacement inner tubes.
Peace+Love

Unbelievable! Driver who texted 44 times before hitting cyclist: "I just don't care"
The 21-year-old from Australia has been fined $4500 and lost her licence for nine months.

The cell phone came out of this just fine, it was the cyclist who suffered .

Great article that shares varying perspectives from women on what it means to be a female cyclist.

There are as many definitions of femininity as there are woman (maybe more), and as many ways to ride a bicycle as there are cyclists.

+Brendan Brisker At least these bars aren't as wrist-destroying as flat bars.

some progress being made here?
 
This evening a handful of Dallas City Council members and other cycling advocates will meet at City Hall, where they’ll hold the first official meeting of the Dallas Bicycle Task Force. There's a lot the task force wants to accomplish. One of them is to snuff out Dallas' helmet law.

Dallas is the only city in the state to have one mandating that riders of all ages wear a helmet. The ordinance poses a challenge to bike-sharing efforts -- self-service stands with bicycles that can be rented by swiping a credit card -- like the one launching in Fair Park next month. Helmets are easy to lose and expensive to replace. Plus, who wants to share a helmet?

"I think the helmet ordinance is not long for this world, which will free us up to do actual bike share and not the fake thing we're doing at Fair Park," council member Philip Kingston says: http://d-news.co/vRKiv.

They have those red rent-a-bikes all over the Trinity near Fort Worth..have yet to see anyone wearing a helmet on one while they are out riding...I get it..renting a bike on the spur of the moment...I am curious where this goes when someone wrecks one these bikes and gets hurt and really pushes the issue...if it means revenue by renting bikes I am pretty sure Dallas will revoke the ordinance to get the bikes in place..

I know it is a bicycle but most of us who ride all the time know it does take some skill and repetitive learning to cope with certain situations and I am glad both Dallas and Ft Worth are at least promoting the idea of commuting and seeing the sites on bicycles...but as far as Ft Worth goes one day there where no bikes and the next day the little bike stations where being put in place along the Trinity near down town..I have come up on a few riding side by side and when I give the familiar "On Your Left" or "Passing on your Left" a few have veered off the trail...or come to a stop..nothing major but I remember thinking to myself....no helmet..one day someone is going to get hurt.and I find it ironic that the Bike Task Force wants to abolish the helmet ordinance.  One would think a Bike Task Force would be pro all things cycling and safety..I understand a lot of people look at like a freedom...that they should have the right to choose and such...and I guess it is a lot like people who do not rent the bikes but ride their own bikes with no helmet...progress..I guess it depends on which side of the fence you are on here on this one...seems like a mixed message to me...but then again nothing surprises me anymore...I have seen a ton of cats on mountain bike trails with no helmets...maybe I am square or old school...but a dude has got to protect his melon...

That's an oddly straight crack. Could that be the bond line between a carbon leg and an aluminum crown?

It was a beautiful weekend for cycling here, but I had other priorities.  I love to bike and my wife loves to bake.  We've found a way to combine the passions.  For the past few years I've done some charity rides and we sell pies and other baked goods as part of the fund-raising.  

This weekend, with a dozen helpers we made 75 pies, 20 cakes and 20 dozen decorated cookies.  Net proceeds will be over $1200, all of it going to the Ontario Tour for Kids, supporting camps and programs for kids with cancer.

Combined with a similar sale at Christmas and other donations, we'll be making a sizable overall contribution. 

And from now until August I can focus on the riding part of the preparations.
