Bike designs by Milos Jovanovic
Bicycle Designs – 5/13/13
Two of the designs that I noticed recently are the ones featured here by Serbian designer Milos Jovanovic. Appropriately named, “Woody” is a wooden city bike which Milos says was “inspired by retro steel frame bicycles” (perhaps he is referring to the older “triple triangle” steel GT frames).
(The wooden bike is cool enough, but the second one is the one that gets my heard racing. – Tom)

In Severn, BMX bicycle racing for young and old
Baltimore Sun – 5/10/13
On a spring night at Chesapeake BMX in Severn, the pursuit of the night was speed. With the smell of hamburgers grilling in the air, brother helped brother, father helped sons and even a grandmother helped her granddaughter, all in the pursuit of pedal power. This wasn’t about the jumps or tricks, like the X Games. It was about the shrieks of children as young as two, and the panting of adults as old as 57 as they raced bicycles on a 1180-foot dirt and asphalt course.
