    Humorous article: How to give up cycling

    Apparently, all it involves is buying a car...

    Enjoy!

    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    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...
