Do More (Iconography) with Less (Original Effort)

This counts as a More with Less variation because I have managed to make this graphic in about 3 minutes, using an AIGA transportation icon and a Wikipedia entry. Here is my inspiration. You can’t bring yr flippin bike on any Wellington buses! What the frig?! (apologies) I’m angry because today I tried to bike from my house into the city, and got surprised by the onset of gale-force winds. Winds waaaay too strong to bike in… strong enough at one point, in fact, to kick up sand from a nearby beach and blow it in my face so hard I had to drop my bike and curl up in a fetal position. I am not kidding. What was going through my mind was, “Oh, Shit! Like a hurricane, or something? Like Desert Storm?”

And there I was, a miserable 20 minute walk from work, a miserable 20 minute walk from home–on a bus route, but UNABLE to use the bus because I had my BIKE, which is not allowed on a Wellington bus! COOL buses in other cities have bike racks on the front! So what gives, Welly? Thus I have started a campaign to get de bike on de bus. Mostly in my mind so far.
