This is great stuff, and I think the bike lane/bike outline art is a great way to bring attention to bikes/bike lanes as well as bike commuting. Thanks for posting this.

funny you should mention singapore, and chewing gum, but not connect those two dots: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chewing_gum_ban_in_Singapore
i've heard there are very large signs at the airport(s?) in singapore making it very clear to international visitors to dispose of gum before going through customs... or else!

btw: tagging is essentially pissing on something with your name (often to mark territory), while graffiti ranges from that to art. street art is NOT tagging. defining how the two differ would be like defining the difference between porn and erotic art: most reasonable people can quickly tell which is which, but defining a distinction would be tough. in most cases, property owners/managers just refer to all of it as "vandalism".

and all to often, in cities across the US, police charge people for using chalk on public streets and sidewalks, and sometimes they do get convictions :( while litterers and horn-honkers foul the streets with impunity.

Nice article, but no need to hassle the guy for his headwear. Isn't it up to him whether he wears a helmet, which may save him from low-speed direct impact with the road, or goes bareheaded, which may save him from rotational brain injury? It's a tough call.

I just had to post this link since you mentioned rotational brain injury.A new helmet has been designed for motorcycle users to prevent just that from happening.

Not to say I buy anything that Simon says, but here's a couple of fairly interesting related links.

In a nutshell round and slick helmets are viewed as good, ridgy stylized "aero" helmets are not.
