This lady we've seen before provides an amusing juxtaposition here.

Don't you just love her functional and loaded bike in the street next to the empty pickup truck?

As Sheldon Brown quotes Victor Hugo -
Le beau est aussi utile que l'utile
When you're both? That's cycle chic!

Ca saute aux yeux!
Quoi de mieux comme image pour clouer le bec à ceux qui disent que le vélo, ce n'est pas pratique.
Merci Charlotte! Une image à faire circuler qui vaut mille mots.

I love the plant-bike lady! She should have her own TV show.
