Winter Posture Postulates

Speciel Service

Winter Wrapped

Two of the classic postures Copenhageners assume whilst waiting for the light to change. Above, The Half-Ready Pedal Placement and below, The Copenhagen Straddle. See more on the Red Light Posture Series post.

If you like, you can click on over to Copenhagenize.com and see how the City of Copenhagen holds on tight to their cyclists by giving them something to hold to.

U nas w Warszawie też jeździ sporo rowerzystów mimo zalegajacego śniegu. Są wśród nich tez kobiety!
Piękne fotografie. Można też zobaczyć fragmenty infrastruktury rowerowej, dość jeszcze egzotycznej w naszym kraju! I love your blog!!!:)

Oh to be so. I wish, but it's not going to happen. And where are all the chic men? Or is that a contradiction?

Colville-Andersen said...

In the first shot, what exactly is the girl wearing? A skirt and hose or pants? Looks like a skirt and hose.
How cold is it out?

Your subjects have such great posture, as if they are in an equestrian competition. It is definitely a more formal stance than our laid back California bicyclists.

ELVIA said...

"I love this site did you know that riding your bike saves the earth . . ."

I'm just glad the Earth managed to hang on for the first 5 billion years until the invention of the bicycle. :)

Republic of Sweden/In Exile-Self Proclaimed/In Formation

We have now formed the Swedish Republic In Exile.

Sadly enough, in Sweden we still have a Monarchy, with a King and a class of Nobility with Counts and Barons.

Such an antiquated institution is obviously in contradiction with modern democratic developments.

The absurd Monarchy preserves obsolete privileges for the Aristocracy in a medieval manner, also imposing Christian Protestantism as the State Religion.

We have therefore formed the Swedish Republic In Exile, based on equal rights and equal duties.

We are going to strive for equality and dignity through logic and reason.

Like the USA and France so many years ago, also the Swedish People should be given the right to be equal under the law.

As you are involved in Swedish affairs, we ask you to support and to publicize our efforts to bring real democracy to Sweden.

You are always welcome with comments, questions and suggestions at rosie.spif@ymail.com

You are also welcome to apply for Citizenship in the Republic of Sweden/In Exile: it is an open International Organization, with a view to create just societies.

Thank you for your support for the enhancement of international democracy.
