We all need a place to go when we are stressed and need to reignite our creative engines. For some, it’s a retreat, like a cabin in the woods. For some of us, it’s a Pinterest board titled A Cabin in the Woods. Yup, I know, not quite the same thing, but I believe I get extra points for being resourceful and thrifty. By the way, if you are a fellow cabin-in-the-woods-dreamer, check out this tumblr, Cabin Porn. It’s not real porn (because I do have a little class), but they are lust-worthy. Here’s a starter set.

Yup, that’s what it’s called, the headbadge. You know, that cool shield that is on the front of cool bikes? Last week I was pondering these as a concept for a client logo (non-bicycle related) and did some research. I wish I weren’t collected-out (still haven’t hung the girl super hero dolls in the new studio), or else I’d start searching for these. Until then, the photos. And, if you’d like to learn more, here’s a nice overview on the history of headbadges from Bicycling. By the way, May is still National Bicycling Month.
I found most of these on Pinterest, and don’t have their sources. If one of these photos belongs to you, let me know so I can credit you.

Which means if you have time to read this, you probably have time to take a bike ride. And if I have time to post it, I suspect I have time for an even longer ride. I tell you what, I won’t judge how you spend your time, if you don’t judge me. But that bike thing…it’s really a great multi-tasker: exercise, inspiration, cheap transportation, fun (!), good for the planet, good for the body, and essential for the brain. And a great, enduring design!
