The Brilliant Cycle of Life. What’s Your IQ?
“Tens of thousands who could never afford to own, feed and stable a horse, had by this bright invention enjoyed the swiftness of motion which is perhaps the most fascinating feature of material life.” Frances Willard , American Suffragette and author of A Wheel Within A Wheel How I learned To Ride A Bike.
Today as millions of US struggle to afford food and shelter let alone stable a car unless your living in it. Cycling simplifies your life slowing you down a notch or two all the while increasing your efficiency saving you money and extending your life.
If your looking for a way to save some coin your bicycle is defiantly a solution. In your car it’s hurry, hurry, rush, rush, spend , spend. On your bicycle it’s a lot more of wow look at that. Cars are slow rolling coffins. Every minute in the automobile is a mile closer to the grave. Your car pollutes your air, imbeds slovenliness in your lifestyle and constantly expose you to commercialisms grip over humanity while embedding stress in every moment of your life.
“Those who wish to control their own lives and move beyond existence as mere clients and consumers—those people ride a bike.” Wolfgang Sachs, Former Chairman of Greenpeace, Germany.
These quotes amongst the hundreds I’ve read exemplify the critical-roll cycling can play in your future livelihood. As numerous European cities migrate to inter-city cargo moving on electric cargo bikes and America is full of Europeans?
What goes around comes around. Europeans have met every challenge they’ve taken up to date while decimating this continent with capitalism and genocide. We need a new attitude.
Here is a challenge we can certainly negotiate. Moving people and their stuff on electric powered cargo bicycles. As more commuters turn towards the economics of cycling our economy needs to move in this direction as well. We need this transportational transformation in our society and across the spectrum of our lives.
We all need to slow the fuck down. This Amazonian Psychoses of needing everything overnight has got to go the way of the automobile. Extinction that is. The extinction of the automobile is preferable to our other option. Your car will become an option in your life not a demand on it when you look to your bicycle for new lifestyle strategies and solutions.
Or stay enslaved in your car controlled and manipulated by corporate greed and it’s government of puppets which has put US all in these dire straits with decades of dedicated to the self-serving selective ignorance which has brought humanity to the threshold of it’s own extinction. Will we carry ourselves over this threshold of stupidity or choose to ride that bicycle.
There are continual forks in our roads yet we continually choose the potholes. It’s time to ride the roads we’ve ignored for too long now. All of them.
