It seems that ‘Woman Wheelers’ not only have to worry about keeping the wheels turning and keeping up to speed…  there is in fact a whole host of things that we should avoid when on two wheels, ( according to an old newspaper cutting ‘Don’ts For Woman Wheelers’).

Magnificent Octopus, aka Kaputniq has begun to transform some of these words of wisdom/warning into some wonderfully playful posters. Which I think illustrate perfectly that perhaps in fact  – it is best not to listen to the rules…

As of course – a good bike ride is not complete without a discussion about bloomers. Nor wearing ‘loud hued leggings’ or perhaps even ‘coasting dangerously!’. The full Don’ts list can be seen below.

P.S. If you are looking for playful, puntastic and stylish bicycle themed graphics – then go and explore Kaputniq’s graphic stream, as there is a range of great work to be seen.
