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

I'm assuming the video was making fun of both groups, but I still thought it was funny as hell.

Just because something includes a whole lot of inside jokes and clichés doesn't mean it's funny.

Actually, it usually means the opposite.

All rap music is cliched anyway and don't kid yourself.

Get off my lawn.

I thought it was great.

I did notice, though, that the Hipster with the little handle bars has reduced frontal area as compared to the Roadie...

Wow.

Hyper critical much? I think that only adds to the point of the video.

I thought it was pretty funny all things considered. It was certainly much better than I expected it to be.

Whoever cant at least crack a smile at that is just fueling the up-tight roadie stereotype.
