Would You Ride This Bike to Help Animals?

ImageOne woman did! Check out the link Deborah sent me here (it’s worth looking at just to see the wacky hat she’s wearing). What’s  more – this bike runs on vegetable oil. It was converted with a kit from a company called PlantDrive. Now that’s pretty awesome!

Thanks for sharing this Deborah! And sorry about the name confusion this morning – I was still half asleep when I read your email:-)

    I don’t think I would, though I see her point. I guess.

    I love this!! She’s educating, she’s not too pushy (I love how she said, “One day a week, that’s all I ask.” Very creative, genius actually. The story behind the skeleton was heart breaking. I love that people were taking her seriously too. Good for her! 🙂

    • Thanks so much for checking this out Maryanne! Isn’t she great! And yes, the cow’s story is so sad. Hope you’re having a fab weekend. Celeste

    I’m so glad you posted this, Celeste. I wouldn’t have have the guts, either. I am in awe of this woman. And like you said, Maryanne, she is not too pushy (the wrath of zealous vegans is legendary!) and very creative (genius, I agree) in her approach. There is NO way to ignore her message or be unmoved by it. She is an art professor at University of Miami and built the bike (and the helmet, obviously!) herself!! Something else I can’t imagine doing. Thank you, Billie, and thank you, Celeste!

    • Not only would I not have the guts, but I wouldn’t have the talent to build the bike either! I’m so happy to promote her here and I hope others promote her as well. Like you, I love her creativity. I think people many people are more moved by positive gestures like this than by things like throwing paint on fur-wearing celebs. At least I’m more moved by things like this. Thanks again for sharing this! Celeste:)

  4. Good for her. I don’t have the guts (pardon me) for that kind of thing, so it’s a good thing others do. The “helmet” is priceless.

    Hey – have I invited you to the Virtual Vegan Potluck on May 11? I host 2 a year and I’d love to have you “bring” something. Details are here: http://virtualveganpotluck.com/resources/how-it-works/ It’s a great way to meet and greet other bloggers!

    • Her hat was awesome – it tickled me:) I don’t think I have the guts either. Oh well, we do our part in other ways.   Thanks so much for inviting me to the Virtual Vegan Potluck. I think it’s a wonderful thing. But yikes – I’m not sure if I’m ready (still struggling with embarrassment about my food photography skills). I will seriously consider it, and if I don’t do this one I’ll definitely do the next one (I’ll have taken a food photography class for sure by then). I very much appreciate the invite. Celeste

      • I hope you decide to join. There are all levels of bloggers participating. It’s just a nice social event. I would love to take a course! Unfortunately where I am that ain’t gonna happen. I did pick up a great little book about food photography for bloggers. Can’t think of the name right off the top, but if you’re interested, I’ll find the book :-).

      • I read a book on food photography and it didn’t help me much. I’d really like to get some hands-on learning. Thanks for the pot luck encouragement – we’ll see. Celeste:)
