Slow Bicycle Rush Hour in La Rochelle, France

You don't get much more gloriously slow bicycle than this.
Bicycle rush hour in La Rochelle, France. The drawbridge was up and roughly 500 cyclists waited patiently for the bridge to go down.

Suggestion for the Slow Bike logo:

Create another image with a step-through bicycle frame - a symbol of respect for women cyclists.

As a woman, I'm frustrated with seeing the diamond/top tube frame bike on signs and bicycle media (in the U.S. at least). To me, it gives the impression cycling is for men.

And while only a minor detail, I wouldn't be surprised if this image subconsciously prevents women from cycling.

a male and female version of the bicycle on the logo were launched at the same time.

you can see it on the merchandise:
