Make Cycling Great Again!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Make Cycling Great Again!

Cycling is the most beautiful sport. It is the most beautiful and the greatest sport to do, ever. Some cyclists, who are crooked - really crooked - and don't know anything, have said a lot of negative stuff about cycling. These cyclists are losers, believe me, they are the worst. Sleazy and dishonest. Some of them don't even know how to ride a bike, but you don't have to take my word for it, you can ask anyone.

So I won't say that cycling is fantastic, or not, but it certainly is, or that you should cycle and enjoy an unbelievably beautiful ride, and I am not saying whether or not that is true, but just that A LOT of cyclists, lots and lots of cyclists, who I love, I love the cyclists, from what I am hearing, are saying these wonderful and beautiful things about cycling, the same things that I have been saying about cycling for a long time.

Round up those hipsters on their fixies. Deport them.

But...

...I'll still be able to buy bikes that have been drop-shipped from Taiwan, right? I mean, it's not really China. Not that China. We have a mutual defense pact with Taiwan, it was a really good deal, wasn't it?

Cycling has always been great. Everyone agrees. Question is, can you get aero?

You know you could replace America with Cycling or anything else and this passage still doesn't make sense.

I noticed that their frames are metal (probably unobtanium) not the asplosive crabon everyone else rides. Maybe they have a crabon disruptor device that makes crabon frames asplode at the push of a button?

...And what's up with those white handlebar mustaches?

I'd like to know Trump's opinion on disc brakes vs rim brakes. It's vital to the election.
