Pinterest Fridays - Gold Heels!

Fingers crossed I find some new riding shoes like these at tomorrow's Garage Sale Trail.

I can't imagine anybody ever wanting to cycle around Sydney in heels to be honest! I mean, isn't it going to be horrible on your feet! Makes me thankful that I'm a man and I don't have to resort to such things on my feet and I can take my bike out of storage without worrying about whether my footwear will clash with it!

christania’s “lej en ladcykel” bikes are rolling across the city. The system, less than a year old, is funded by christania’s municipal government. It is currently only in one of christania’s 22 administrative districts. Although a 2nd generation system, there are 12 “Houses” in this district, each with around 40 bikes. The yearly subscription cost is the equivalent of $2 US, and allows the use of a bike for up to four hours at a time. In less than a year, there have been 6,000 subscriptions sold. There are larger 3rd generation systems in the world, which do not have a subscription to bike ratio as big as that.
