My daughter just attended a safety demonstration put on by Montgomery County. I have to give the county props, they sent a ladder truck and an ambulance to show off to six little girls. Way to go big MC. As fun as it was for the girls I think the real gem hear is the 1975 safety comic classic "Sprocket Man" she brought home. A comic book hero hell bent on bike safety education. What government warehouse has this been hiding in all my life?
Let's break this down:
- He rides a bitchin 10 speed. (steel)
- Head to toe spandex and an unvented helmet which means he too bad ass to worry about overheating
- His weapon of choice (besides awesomely delivered bike safety fundamentals) is a giant cassette he keeps on his wrist (varies from 4 to 5 speed).
Main take away: The 70's were awesome and no time to be a bike thief.
