Evilness

You Are 68% Evil
You are very evil. And you're too evil to care.
Those who love you probably also fear you. A lot.



How Evil Are You?

The most efficient animal on earth in terms of weight
transported over distance for energy expended is a human on a bicycle.





I would really LOVE one of these...

Winter in Sydney


I love riding in the rain, especially when I know it's going to be raining so that I can dress appropriately. It's starting to get really cold here in Sydney, when I got home tonight the girls were dressed like this.

Hanging in there


Found one of our posters still clinging on...

Recreational riding

Jim pumped up everyone's tires

Everybody ready to roll








We stopped at the chocolate shop








Cook's River









And they still had the energy for a rock concert...

London

I. Thou shalt hold no other races above the Tour de France.
II. Thou shalt not make unto thee helmets which cost more than £100.
III. Thou shalt not take My name in vain everytime thou gettest a flat tyre.
IV. Remember to oil thy chain, to keep it rolling.
V. Honour the Zebra Crossing and those walking upon the face of it.
VI. Thou shalt not ignore other road users, nor cycle recklessly upon the pavement.
VII. Thou shalt not steal bicycles.
VIII. Thou shalt not kill, except bicycle thieves.
IX. Thou shalt not hang onto moving cars.
X. Thou shalt not covet they neighbour's new Cannondale, nor his groupset, nor his £3000 mtb, nor even his stylish shades.

Forget not the Titanium Rule: Signal unto others as thou wouldst have others signal unto thou.

And moving right along, there came four horsemen of the Apocalypse, and they were the Taxicab Driver, and the Motorcycle Messenger, and the White Van Man, and the Man Opening a Car Door Without Looking.

Bicycles at war

Dutch military cyclists' corps


The 1st ANZAC Cyclist Battalion never served in the front line as a fighting unit, but it was exposed to regular bombardments by artillery and aircraft. Cyclist detachments, however, took part in the last stages of the war, as the German Army retreated from the trench systems to the Hindenburg Line. Thirteen men were killed in action. The 2nd Battalion (officered by New Zealanders) fared even less well with a loss of 59 dead.
