The bicycle is the slow death of the planet.
General Director of Euro Exim Bank Ltd. got economists thinking when he said:
"A cyclist is a disaster for the country's economy: he does not buy cars and does not borrow money to buy. He does not pay for insurance policies. He does not buy fuel, does not pay for the necessary maintenance and repairs. He does not use paid parking. He does not cause serious accidents. He does not require multi-lane highways. He does not get fat.
Healthy people are neither needed nor useful for the economy. They don't buy medicine. They do not go to hospitals or doctors. Nothing is added to the country's GDP (gross domestic product).
On the contrary, every new McDonald's restaurant creates at least 30 jobs: 10 cardiologists, 10 dentists, 10 dietary experts and nutritionists, and obviously, people who work at the restaurant itself."
Choose carefully: cyclist or McDonald's? It is worth considering.
P.S. Walking is even worse. Pedestrians don't even buy bicycles.

Never argue with an idiot......they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

They do get stolen as much as cars do. So that is at least a case for us having more police officers on the street .

Someone stole my friends bike a few years back while he was inside teaching a class, It was recorded on cctv clear as day a local thief even looking up at the camera!! idiot.
The thief didn't stop to think this is a bike chained to a wall outside a Full Contact Thai Boxing Club if someone comes out it might not end well lol. There is only one way out that road and surprise surprise for the thief he rode off and turned the corner at the top of the road to be met by an angry Martial arts instructor (it was his bike) and about 12 of his students....................ouch it didn't end well! lol.
