The dancing chain queen


They met on a 'Singles with Stabilisers' ride


Signs of a backlash against carbon-fibre


Awaiting a designated driver


Coulda been a contender


Why some people are driven to belt drives


Can also be used for emergency bridge repairs


Inspired by the penny-farthing


For those weening themselves off bar tape


Another fashion faux pas, apparently


The first superhighway will only be as long as my arm, but it's a start


Don't try this on your anniversary


Finally, a place to keep your Proofide


...and your vellum scrolls


If you're not an alcoholic it isn't worn in


Cheating


Papa's bike


Child-friendly airbag


Some exhibitors didn't try very hard


Much of a muchness


A groupset upgrade is worth a 2nd mortgage, right?


Somebody's got to keep the dowel manufacturers in business


One day the war will be over. And I hope that the people that use this bridge in years to come will remember how it was built and who built it. Not a gang of slaves, but soldiers, British soldiers, Clipton, even in captivity.


It's a folder, Jim, but not as we know it


For a small charge we can install the clips directly onto your foot


Every niche filled: this is for bike polo played using kittens


Buy something or I'll snap your neck like a twig


If it works for dim sum it'll work for bike shops


Interior design courtesy Donnie Darko


Gay City Rollers  sorry, couldn't resist


The last thing grandma saw as she was innocently crossing the road


Improved drug delivery systems were also on display




See? Some people can color inside the lines


No, cycling extra hard won't make it grow back


Two wheels not so good?


Proof that splashing in puddles as a kid can lead to great job opportunities


Only wimps use spoke keys


Teach your children well
