BBC essay about drawings pictures of bicycles

http://www.bbc.com/autos/story/20160418-turns-out-bikes-are-quite-hard-to-drawVery interesting essay - an artist asked friends to draw a picture of a bicycle  (two minute time frame) and he collected hundreds of drawings.  Then he rendered computerized images of "bicycles" from those drawings - bikes with the chains connecting both front and back wheels, tires on one side of the frame.  BBC has some…See More

I'm sure I've entered the "crazy aunt" category or the boisterous old lady niche.  Standing in line at the post office, the man behind me mumbles about having to feed the parking meter. There's my opening, I think.  "You didn't ride your bike today...??" me being friendly - his mail is going off to Montana."No, I haven't ridden for a while, but once I rode from Colorado Springs (or was it Boulder) to the Canadian border and once all the way to the San Juan Islands...so all my riding was at one…See More
