When did cycling become so complicated?
The tweet above from #ottbike shows that your agent has no understanding of cycling. Your agent is incredibly naive. Why he just thought cycling consisted of: get on bike; slap on helmet; get water; go.
Your agent is surprised it is more complicated than that.
But then cycling has changed incredibly over the years. I learned that from #ottbike on Twitter where we discovered that most of the illnesses that afflict mankind can be cured by cycling. That has to be difficult to do. Complicated, no doubt.
You could look it up. The Bike Gnomes love to look up things that favour their cause … whatever that is.
Why as we speak officials should be putting stationary bikes into critical-care wards all over The Ottawa Hospital.
In fact we could replace all those pesky doctors with cycling advocates … the Bike Gnomes.
Ottawa is blessed that it has these people.
You know if the Gnomes just scratched the surface of this puppy, they would know that your agent does believe that cycling is good for your health (though one doubts it cures cancer). But then all forms of exercise do that to some degree.
And biking is good for the environment. No fumes. The hot air comes when the Gnomes aren’t cycling.
But what bothers your agent about the Gnomes is their self-righteous attitudes, their monstrous self-importance, their sole possession of The Truth and that they are cheap as in they won’t license bikes or pay user fees.
In short, they are selfish and pompous and that’s what makes it so fun to satirize them.
You know they say in politics that if people are yelling at you, it means they take you seriously.
If they’re laughing at you, you’re finished.
Don’t forget, Gnomes … World Peace Through Pedalling.
