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


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
