Living Car Free - Humorous article: How to give up cycling
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Apparently, all it involves is buying a car...
A great web site. More stuff from there: "be particularly wary in towns that have announced they want to "encourage" bicycling. Usually, the net result in such cities is an explosion of ridiculous, unenforceable or very randomly enforced absurd rules which utterly discourage bicycling. Inept bureaucrats who always drive, although they may have a racing bike gathering dust in storage somewhere, will generally just observe whatever it is that bicyclists need to do in a town to get by, then enact prohibitions against that and call this "encouraging" bicycling."
Brilliant. Tells it just like it is. :)

There are many aspects of our western society that are completely ridiculous when viewed from 'outside'. The sad thing is that most people never question the way they lead their lives.
Great article, thanks for posting.
Since I'm still driving mostly myself I find that I slightly adhere to the motorist mentality. I can see how owning a bike would make someone more humble in many ways...
