Infoschmucks: Anti-Cycling Infographic Disguised as Pro-Cycling

There’s a new infographic making the rounds. If you follow bike-related blogs, Facebookers, or Twitterers you might have seen it.

The Sidekick by Sleepypod or ‘How to Transport a Small Mammal by Bike’

Every dog owner knows that face.  That sad, adorable, convincing, and slightly threatening face.  Yes, it’s the face of your dog when you are about to leave home without him or her to embark on some activity that will obviously be fun. “How dare you?” your pooch seems to be saying.  ”I see that you [...]
