Unlike most athletes that lose value over time, I’m certain that many of us that never quit inventing (whatever that may mean) uses for bicycles, bike art, have become more useful. After all, our cohort–the Boomers–are very interested in their own phenomenon.
To remind all my 1980’s pals that we are –ahem–great, if simply for not postponing pleasure when we were young, I drew this little thing up. I might need a better motto up there on top.
“Gloria” is brief, but cool. That is cut from a champagne foil.
“Sick transit, glorious mundi“? I rather like that…
