Cycle Commuting Comic-Yehuda Moon and the Kickstand Cyclery

Cycle Commuting Comicstrip

Yehuda Moon & the Kickstand Cyclery is a daily comic for cyclists everywhere. The comic is geared for the commuting audience. But is a little for everyone on two wheels. The comic is drawn by Rick Smith.

I’ve been reading with delight since it’s inception. I’ve wanted to do this about one hundred times myself. It seems urban bike culture is coming into it’s own. The comic depicts two cyclists. Yehuda is the steel frame/single speed/ simplicity bike guy who works at the shop the Kickstand. Then there is the bike shop owner Joe. Joe is more of a high technology fan and is a perfect foil to Yehuda.

Today’s comic is a gem.

Another favorite of mine is where Yehuda paints his own Bike lanes. Peruse the archives and enjoy.

  1. It is amazing how many people believe that bicycles belong on the sidewalk. Bicycles have the same rights, and of course, the same responsibilities, as car.

    I just read the book "Bicycling and the Law", and it had some stuff about the history of bikes and cars. Bicycles were developed first, and the law had to figure out where they fit on the roads with horses, trolleys, etc. They classified them as vehicles. Bicycles demanded smooth paved roads, so concrete was laid for us. A good 20 years later, cars come along. The government determines that cars are also vehicles. So maybe the appropriate saying is that "cars have the same rights, and responsibilities, as bicycles."
