An Ideal Cyclist

An ideal cyclist wouldn’t read such perfect prose about a pedaling pastime.

“The Ideal Cyclist is patient. He has been known to wait upwards of days for the removal of a traffic cone. When the Ideal Cyclist reaches a four-way stop near the same time as drivers, he stops, looks, waves the others through and hails a cab.”

“The Ideal Cyclist will sometimes drive her bicycle to a street where there are bike lanes to begin her trip and ask a friend to pick her up where the lanes end. She shares the road by vacating it.”

There are so many bike lanes in Regina that end no where near a potential destination, that I often joke they expect Ideal Cyclists to poof out of existence when the end of the lane is reached.

You’ll hear shock jocks on Saskatchewan radio talking about how there just aren’t enough Ideal Cyclists, and all they encounter are less than perfect people on bikes who cause them great stress while contributing nothing to society other than grief.

#YQRTweetupX was fun yet again

It was last night at the Artful Dodger on 11th Ave.


Two years ago I ran into Elan at the Cathedral Village Arts Festival and suggested we should hold a mini-tweetup party. To distinguish it from the main event running about every 3 months, we’d add an “X” on the end of the hashtag. Last year there was a Summer tweetup at Flip (which I missed due to recovering from dying), and so the 2nd almost annual YQR (Regina) Tweetup-X was held this year at Artful Dodger.

Developer Ordered To Rebuild The Plains

…Can you imagine?

“Developer ordered to rebuild historic pub after demolishing it without planning permission”

Udhyam Amin was accused of trying to get planning permission ‘by the back door’ after pulling down the Alchemist pub in Battersea

Art In The News

I wonder why Regina’s art doesn’t make the international news very often? Maybe because we’re not willing to take chances?

US student gets stuck in Peruvian vagina sculpture located in Germany, and is rescued by 22 firefighters.

This has not happened in the first 13 years the artwork was on display.

The American man is now #BornAgain, delivered by firefighters. There is no information on if the vagina was damaged during the incident.
