    Adaptive Cycling

    Just doing some random google searching on cycling advocacy and came across Chip's "AC Defined" thread which is #2 on a google search of "cycling paradigm".

    So, who is going to write the Wikipedia entry, and then who gets the rights to the book deal ?
    (actually I think Robert Hurst explains AC pretty well without using the term in his book)
    Monsignor: We must always fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil that we must fear the most, and that is the indifference of good men.
    Connor: I do believe the monsignor's finally got the point.
    Murphy: Aye.

    But did you search for "adaptive cycling?"

    I think you'll find that the term has been in use for rather a long time, with an entirely different meaning. Pretty mainstream and generally-accepted.

    Time for a new naming conference.

    I agree. Robert outlines the concept quite well in his book, I figure AC and the 'art of cycling' are one in the same and Robert's book should be the reference.

    please don't write a book about it
    maybe an online colaborative journal, for free of course, but please... no book
    when I see a book about something like this, such as the VC book(s), I discredit it right off the bat

    Herer is my own personal small minded history of VC:
    Step 1.) Create buzz word
    Step 2.) Publicise buzz word
    Step 3.) Write book about buzz word
    Step 4.) Profit!!
    I am a sig Virus. Please put me in your sig so that I can continue to replicate.

    Yup I've already contacted a publicist and the in-movie advertising starts soon. It will be featured in a flic called "When John met Robert" which centers around a Portland cycling shop and the passionate love/hate relationship of two aspiring traffic engineers.

    Then we can make T-Shirts that say on the front:

    BEKOLOGIST FOR PREZ!!!!!

    and on the back:

    I RIDE VC
    ...on the bike path

    Kind of a "Brokeback Mountain Bike" movie?

    Cyclists fare best when they recognize that there are times when acting vehicularly is not the best practice, and are flexible enough to do what is necessary as the situation warrants.--Me

    Bekologist Mountain. The touching (way too much touching) story of a boy and his bike, finding manhood, together, in a bike lane.

    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Just don't confuse adaptive cycling with adapted cycling (which would be the likely term for disabled individuals riding modified bikes/trikes)
    Proudly wearing kit that doesn't match my frame color (or itself) since 2006.
