two cycles

2For my 1ne post today, I’m keeping it pretty simple with 2 pictures of a bike sign in a VERY small town (1 stop light!) in Northeast Ohio. What my family loves about Peninsula is that it’s located in the middle of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. So there are a lot of trails, waterfalls and endless exploring to do. Not to mention, a Winking Lizard restaurant (only click that link if you want to have a mild seizure). One of my favorite signs in Peninsula is Century Cycles. The sign out front is pretty shitty, not gonna lie. The dude on the bike looks like he’s one slight breeze away from a face plant. Also, he looks *really* uncomfortable on that bike. Ouch. Anyway, I would have chosen a different illustration. The type treatment isn’t helping that sign either. I guess if homeboy takes a tumble, he should probably lean the other way so those giant ‘C’s will break his fall. Ugh, I’m going to have nightmares about the spacing on this sign. Moving on…
What does make me happy is the sign on the side of the building. No fancy illustration, no crazy spaced type. Just a beautiful sign that proudly shows its relationship with the weather. Here’s a detailed shot:3Love it!

It’s the weekend. Back at it on {Manhole} Monday!

  1. Great post –
    I had a chance to see your talk while on vaca in Miami – loved it! Live in ATL now but RVA for 20 years prior and managed to miss you in both those places. Even more interesting that you’ve chosen a bike sign – my husband is an AVID cyclist (to put it mildly) so we can easily send more in that genre if interested.
