Thought for the month

“You always own the option of having no opinion. There is never any need to get worked up or to trouble your soul about things you can't control. These things are not asking to be judged by you. Leave them alone.”
Marcus Aurelius Antonius, Emperor and Stoic philosopher (121-180).

Recycling bicycling

To win the Tour de France you probably need an expensive, high technology, carbon fibre framed bicycle. But for more mundane urban cyclists, that well known composite cardboard could be the material to watch. An Israeli inventor has pioneered the use of cardboard for the production of bikes. The 10 kilogram cardboard bicycle, which cost around $10 to make, can carry riders weighing up to 220 kilograms. Perhaps Mr Armstrong would have even won on one of these?
