Long time readers will know that I passionately follow bicycle racing [*]. Today over at The Chemistry Blog, I have a guest post there where you get to see what I think about when I see a bicyclic molecule. Just a hint of what you'll find: when I raced bicycles, I was involved in lots of crashes that busted open lots of wheels. I'm not racing anymore, but I'm still thinking about busting open wheels and other circular objects.
I will add your beautiful molecular bicycle :-) to the molecular basket, molecular rotor, molecular wheel on an axis, and molecular two links of a chain (catenate) .
 See the section Chemists' Fascination with Molecules that 'Look' like Ordinary Objects in the paper Foundations of Chemistry 8(1), 53-72.
Sorry I forgot the year of the publication: Foundations of Chemistry 2006: 8(1), 53-72.
