Focusing on bicycling and motorcycling
no. it's not just you. poseurs on electras throwing a tantrum around others who dare to break a sweat in their presence do similar to me too. that said these children of the fog may even assimilate a sustainable lifestyle if subjected to something other than hummers as vehicles of ascendancy. more pics of the pres on a bike saying intelligent things may jolt the fogborne into thinking for themselves.bicycles are for transportation. hummers are for killing.
At least they're riding. You CAN wear a nice shirt and tie under your biking jacket (which I do) and toss on the trousers @ the office. That way you can avoid the ODBI (overweight dutch bike issue) and enjoy the ride.
If those folks think it's stylish to ride a bicycle dressed in their finery, kudos to them! A lot of them probably would otherwise call the "car service" and get delivered in a gas-guzzling limo. If they can cause more folks to get on bikes it's a good thing no matter what actually motivates them as long as they're riding 'em and not hauling them in to the office in the back of their "Humbler" or Chevrolet "Subdivision" just to pose on them!
Jeez, Maynard, between you and Tamar, how may different two-wheelers do you own and ride? Lighten up. I'm sure there are thumper purists out there who sneer at anything made in Japan no matter how few cylinders it has.You sometimes sound like those fixie kids you sneer at so knowingly.
