    Talking I am a VC advocate & I am OK

    I am a VC advocate & I am OK
    I sleep all night & I ride all day

    I cut down bike lanes, I eat my lunch
    I go to the lavatory
    On Wednesdays I go shopping
    With my Toyota Prius, wife and kids

    I am a VC advocate & I am OK
    I sleep all night & I ride all day

    I cut down bike lanes, I skip & jump
    I like to ride in 50mph traffic
    I put on silly clothing
    And hang around in bars

    I am a VC advocate & I am OK
    I sleep all night & I ride all day

    I cut down bike lanes, I wear funny shoes
    Suspenders & a helmet
    I wish I could be a big Mack truck
    Just so I can get some respect

    With apologies to Monty Python

    VC advocate must not wear a helmet. I have never seen a car driver in a helmet.

    does this mean all extreme VCers might be cross-dressers? not that there's anything wrong with that.

    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

    An example of VC Advocacy's scientific approach and logical reasoning?

    Another example?

    This could actually apply to either extreme end of the argument though.

    Actually, as a vehicular cyclist, I'd think the appropriate Monty Python sketch for the anti-VC crowd might be "Brave Sir Robin".

    Exactly! I would only add that they get away from the argument clinic when they are debating how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

    Hmm it has potential…

    Bravely bold Sir Robin rode forth from Camelot.
    He was not afraid to die, O brave Sir Robin.
    He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways,
    Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin!

    EVERYONE sing now:

    Every lane is sacred.
    Every lane is good.
    Every lane is needed
    In your neighbourhood.

    Every lane is sacred.
    Every lane is great.
    If a lane's not painted,
    God gets quite irate!

    Right, that's it. I've warned you before. This thread is getting seriously silly and it has to stop.

    Actually, the proposal for VC begins take on less credibility than this idea:

    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.
