I refuse to be defined by a mode of transport regardless of whether i'm riding my bike or not.
Or auto drivers have tinted windows that do the same. Although I think all cars have tinted rear seat windows anymore.
I think you will find the sedentary folk clasify each other on various criteria mostly what vehicle they drive
Metro today ran the daft article (belatedly) about cyclists being percieved a 'non-human'.
That really was a bizarre survey.
'Less than 90% human'? What's the other 10%+? Bison? Carrot? Lawnmower?
Cycling god in my case !!!
Leisure cyclist I suspect is the majority
Person on a bike I like
I think there are two main groups.
Cyclists , wearing what they want making their way from A to B, C, D etc in a fairly sensible manner.
Then there's **##@ with bikes.
Going along the pavement with their carrier bags swinging from the handlebars. No lights, no road sense.
Those with black, grey/silver or white bike frames and those with coloured frames.
What about those with black frames with coloured trims ? Can we have out own subgroup ?
50%+, according the atomic theory.
One of the subplots in The Third Policeman, by Flan O'Brien, is that the bicycle rider assumes more atoms of the bicycle, and vice versa, the more riding is accomplished. A symptom of this is leaning against a wall, or standing with one foot on the curbstone.
This is why I like lying down all the time. An effect of all the mileage I have done on recumbents.
