Interesting Dutch ad for VW, wonder if we'll see it over here? I'm sure we will… and I wonder what it says about how the world views people on bikes? Cool enough to sell cars, in Holland anyway

 

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

As a trials (and a road) rider, I love the publicity that it's getting. Danny is doing really well for himself and at long last trials is finally getting the exposure it deserves!

Yeah, I think it's great too, he can do amazing things on a bike and he deserves the recognition (and the cash) plus I also like the fact that this is a car ad that features much more of a guy riding a bike than it does of the actual car itself.
