Everything can be improved with bikes. What a great concept!
Please discuss.

That seems to pan out. I mean, how often have you heard of anyone who's good at having sex with bikes? Surely an area we can see great improvements in! The rest follow similarly...

I was thinking that the exercise makes you more attractive and stronger, which certainly impinges on sex. But maybe there's more to it than I thought. . . .

Believe me, everything is so much better with bikes. For the last week or more, I've been unable to ride due to a mysterious leg pain. I miss the mobility and convenience of riding, not to mention the FUN. My alternative plans are working well, but I can't wait to "mount" my bike again. And you can take that any way you want to!

entertainment, education, labor, politics, law, religion, sex, war, and economics ("all of which can be improved with bikes!").
Entertainment: They have the 'Speed Channel' for cars. Where's my 'Bike Channel'!? Seriously, It would be 90% of my viewing.
Labor: Bikes are put to work to help make jobs easier world wide, unfortunatly the US is very lacking in this area and if you mention bikes and working together people seem to think of bike cops.
Law: see above
Religion: It's been working great for the Mormon misionaries for a long time, they have improved the size of their religion by using bicyles for quite a while.
sex: as someone said, it could make you healthier and look better. But if you tried to throw a bike in the mix it would be awkward, get in the way, and probably end up in a seriously embarassing injury.
war: Bikes have been used in wars of past and have been put back by horses and motorcycles. The biggest issue I see is the ability of the bikes they used at the time. I think small factions of infantry, Rangers, and SpecOps could use hardened modern mountain bikes as infiltration tools.
economics: I don't even want to touch this one.

Economics is better with bikes because after the peak oil-induced apocalypse all the suits at Wall Street will still be able to get to work from their house on the Jersey side.

Yeah, imagining the Holland Tunnel at rush hour with no cars is kind of a trip. Pelotons on the left.
