Hey That Was Me!

Written by Boston Biker on Feb 26

I am pretty sure I can now die happy, I made BikeyFace. I do tend to ride past her (we have opposite direction commutes), and I do recall a rather “whaaa” look on her face when I was all bundled up in a scarf. If you are reading this BikeyFace, mystery solved.

Read the rest of this great comic here.

Seeing Vs Looking

Written by Boston Biker on Feb 23

I was waiting for an appointment the other day when I struck up a conversation with another woman in the lobby. She noticed my bike helmet and the conversation quickly turned to a discussion of cars versus cyclists.

It was just on of those casual conversations you have with a stranger in passing. After voicing the usual complaint about cyclists never stopping for red lights she added that she just “was not looking for cyclists.”

I started thinking about the word “looking.” Do drivers only see what they are looking for? And are they only looking for other cars? Which would mean, to a driver, a city intersection looks like this:

This is possibly the greatest visual example of this phenomenon I have ever witnessed.  From the always amazing Bikeyface, if you are not reading her comic you should start today!

I created the gif, go to the bikeyface website to see it in all its glory.
