No wonder no one rides bicycles!

From the Indianapolis Star, 1980:

"Not only are bicycles dangerous, they are as antiquated a form of transportation as the rickshaw. In no advanced city on earth will you find civilized people cycling to work. The urban cyclist is generally a crank, either profoundly antisocial or hopelessly narcissistic and following the strenuous life in hopes of achieving immortality or a legendary sex life. When you encounter him give him a wide berth and never turn your back on him."

Not saying it's a primary motivation, but really-- would anybody *mind* achieving a legendary sex life? I'm just saying!
