Noticed by us in a debate on popular discussion website Reddit, this unorthodox method of cycling has us both intrigued and unsure, but for Warren Huska of Toronto - it's a lifesaver.
Mr. Huska, who cycles 18 kilometres to a from work every day, got sick of cars overtaking him incorrectly, way too close and quite dangerously, so he decided to take the law (noodle) into his own hands.
People get really insulated inside a vehicle. They don’t really know where the edges of their vehicle are.
But, since 2015, when the cyclist strapped a pool noodle onto the back of his bike, drivers have gifted him a wider berth.
Now, when he mounts his trusty steed, Huska is protected. with cylindrical foam.
Strapped to the back of his bike’s frame with string and bungee cords, the floppy foam noodle is a reminder to drivers not to get too close.
And, it works.
Could this be the answer to all of Dublin's cycling problems?
