UNMADE IDEAS


.




This is the Stelvio Pass in Italy. It is the second highest paved pass in the Alps 
(43 feet below the highest, the Col de l'Iseran in France).  
It has 48 switchbacks.  (See a photo of it on the next page.)
The jersey's base color honors the azzura, the traditional color of all
Italian national teams. The sleeve bands are the colors of the Italian flag.






The Alpe d'Huez is the most legendary site in all of bike racing.
It has 21 switchbacks. (There is a picture of it on the next page.)
The background is yellow in reference to the maillot jaune, the Yellow Jersey
awarded the leader, then the winner of the  Tour de France.
The sleeve bands are the colors of the French flag.












Front wheels replaced by a somewhat circular image that represents a place.
The idea lends itself to New York City (The Big Apple), Washington State (Apples) ;
Syracuse, Orange County, Florida, (Oranges); Georgia (Peaches), New Jersey (Tomatoes);
etc.

I coined the expression "One Less Car." You can Google it.

I gave it to Transportation Alternatives, New York's
 emmine
nt bic
ycle and pedestrian advocacy organization. 



And very lastly...

This is probably not good to 
wear where there are emotionally  stunted,
yahoo drivers and their emotionally stunted, yahoo
passengers
who find it good sport to buzz cyclists and throw bottles, cans,

and bullets at them. ...Which  is to say everywhere....
