Somewhere in Lisbon, Portugal there is an unprecedented literary work of art on display along the banks of the Tagus River. There lies a bicycle lane with poetry printed on the asphalt. An excerpt from the poem “The Keeper of Sheep” penned by Fernando Pessoa is the thought-provoking poem painted on the lane in large bold letters.

The result is known as the BarBra, which easily slips over your handlebars, fastens with Velcro straps, while reflective stripes are wrapped around making sure you are safe. Some might find this product “a bit much”, due to the fact you can simply wear gloves to avoid the cold, but as you know sometimes it is harder to shift with larger gloves. The BarBra also deflects wind, so now you can wear thinner gloves and still keep your hands warm. Retail price is $29.
