Cartoon Tuesday: Biking to Work with Yehuda Moon and Kickstand Cycling

In honor of Bike to Work Week in Los Angeles, I thought I would bring back "Cartoon Tuesday" with a favorite bicycling comic.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find a comic that amused as much as this drawing on the wall of Gavin Newsom’s communications office, so I was at a loss.

But I did find myself consistently getting a chuckle out of a strip that was appearing regularly in my search about a bearded cyclists adventures.  After a couple of click throughs, I discovered "Yehuda Moon and Kickstand Cycling," a daily comic strip about cycling by a cyclist.   I’m providing a copy of today’s strip above, but to follow Yehuda’s daily adventures, check out their official website, updated daily.
