LoveYourBike is asking folks who already bike to work to send in a description of their route. If they send in a photo of themselves and their bikes, it will be published on the website.

It's also asking bike commuters to report on the the good bits and the bad bits for biking in Manchester. These will be shared with other bikers and passed along to the local councils of Greater Manchester.

The following video is a report on the success of It includes a rather hilarious promotional piece that makes me wonder if we sometimes turn our love of bikes into a downright fetish.

This bicycle can drift like a snowboard around cars.
