Tattoo offers clear message with every pedal stroke
Rick Segrue wants to send an unmistakable message with every stroke of his pedal. “I commute quite a bit by bicycle and I wanted to make a statement that bikes belong on the road,” he said yesterday at the South City Ride organized in response to the attack on cyclists near the Missouri Botanical Garden late last month.
There are still folks who don’t know what the symbol on Rick’s leg means, including his tattoo artist at Cheap TRX tattoos, where he went in May to have his tattoo created. “She knew what a bicycle was, of course, but I had to convince her that those weren’t my corporal stripes from the army,” he said.
