Bicycle Infrastructure Fetish?

I know it's only October but I've been looking for a 2011 wall calendar for my study. The strangest so far, by far, is the The 2010 Copenhagenize Bicycle Infrastructure Fetish Calendar on

Now that's what I call a proper fetish... Never mind leather, latex, chains and whips - bicycle infrastructure can be a truly fetishistic experience! Unfortunately they don't seem to have a 2011 version (yet).


  1. Bah! They don't have shots of the calendar's pictures. How am I supposed to know if this is something to add to my fetish list if I can't see inside to see if it turns me on?

  2. There's a preview button on the page - I think it might be labelled 'see more' or something - under the image of the front cover. It opens a popup screen so you may have just blocked popups?

    If you can see it, there are wonderfully exciting images of cycle lanes, signage, and a specially adapted train carriage that takes bikes.

    I think for town planners and such, it would fit at least one if not both of two definitions of 'fetish' - 'sexual attraction to objects, body parts or situations not conventionally viewed as being sexual in nature' or alternatively 'the attribution of religious or mystical qualities to inanimate objects'.

    I have this mental image of someone getting horny over pictures of cycle lane signs... but maybe that's just the way my imagination works.
