Found this Bicycle Joke on the Internet

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

Found this Bicycle Joke on the Internet

Somewhat relevant?
I took the liberty of substituting 'Fred' for the term 'Nerd'

Fred Bicycle
A fred was walking on campus one day when his friend, another fred, rode up on an incredible shiny new bicycle.

The first fred was stunned and asked, "Where did you get such a nice bike?"

The second fred replied, "Well, yesterday I was walking along minding my own business when a beautiful woman rode up to me on this bike. She threw the bike to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want!'"

The second fred nodded approvingly, "Good choice, the clothes probably wouldn't have fit."

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation....
