From last week's "Family Guy". Recumbent folks call this "Aerobelly'.



And don't forget that Marge Simpson had a fling with a swingin', recumbent-riding, college professor before she met Homer:



True story: a few months before I arrived in the Portland area, an elderly man attended a couple Oregon Human Powered Vehicle meetings. Unfortunately he was ailing and passed away in March of 1996 so I never met him when I joined the club.

His name was Homer Groening- Matt's dad and namesake of Homer Simpson. I wish I had gotten to know him. He sounds like a neat person.…

Consequently, prominently displaying the OEM tyre brand was a big selling point for many bicycle manufacturers.

Often quoted by Gino Bartali, "everything's wrong; we'll have to start all over again."

I apologize if this has already been posted, but I haven't read all 15 (excellent!) pages yet (I will). This is a clip from an animated movie (aka "cartoon"?) called the Triplets of Belleville. It definitely has creepy crazy cycling characters. This is a clip, I think I saw the whole movie on YouTube.

The Forties
(My father had done business with Chester G., as such and myself a youngster had met him on a few occasions. Backyard and trail had tombstones of Tracy's villains.)


From the series Bicycle Thieves late 1940 to early 1941





Something less innocent late 1940s-
