Now you know why I love cycling. Cycling is good for you libido according to Ádám Bodor, the Hungarian cycling deputy from the Ministry of Economics and Transport.
Ádám Bodor: “In Hungary the car is status symbol nr. one, it is my mission to get the people of Hungary on the bike”.
Who knows what is said in this video? Tell it in the comments.
I found a great bicycle-related public intervention art piece this morning that you’d appreciate. Max Estes printed “Your Bicycle Misses You” onto neon green tags and hung them from car door handles. The project is part of an eco-conscious exhibit of activist art in Milwakee, Wisconsin called Seeing Green.

For anyone interested in the translation, here it is…
First of all, on the biker lady’s bag it says: bike to work.
Then the lady asks the old man: would you like some tea? He answers: thank you, that would be lovely. As she is listening to the noises coming from the other room, she mutters under her breath: you should rather be biking, too, Rezso. And then at the end, the tag line is almost the same: You should rather be biking, too or (ride your bike instead as well - which is a more literal translation).
Hope this helps! I’m a huge fan of Osocio!!! :-)))

Thanks for the translation Nori! Biking is, in fact, super sexy- for both sexes. Good find, Marc!

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
