Happy velo Valentine

It is said (in the Velo Vedas) that a relationship may be strengthened or broken on a tandem. I’ve certainly seen some bonds that, tied too close, would lead to singular disaster. I’ve also seen relationships so steady that their balance appears to improve on a bicycle built for two.

Here’s wishing all couples, and singles alike, a happy Valentine’s Day.

Love that video! Great slideshow.
Although I’m completely anti-Valentines Day.

Come on, Ryan, what do you have against florists? 🙂

I actually don’t mind florists…except for ones like those in the movie The Town :p

It’s become ridiculously commercial (of course it seems like everyday ‘special’ day has).

The past two years the same ad is played on the radio for a jewellery store. Paraphrase of what’s said; “Come on guys, ladies simply don’t want chocolates or flowers anymore. Come in and buy her (insert expensive diamond ring/earrings etc). It will only cost you one months pay, but she’ll love you forever.”

I wish I could say it was a parody.

I also find it borderline sexist.
It use to be about love and the couples. Now it’s strictly about “her” and how much you spend.
Or even like the ad above, sexist against women, assuming you can only buy their love.

Despite the Beatles tune, I think tainted love will always be a much sought after commodity.
