I've got news for you. Right wingers absolutely HATE bicycles.

Do you really think that is news to me? I have been working for bicycle advocacy for 37 years. In Louisiana no less. "If it's not oilfield, it ain't &4/#." Is what I hear.
The only right wingers here who tolerate cycling are the ones who ride.

"Transport is a subtly political business. Left-wingers like trains
(central planning, low fuel consumption, largely egalitarian seating).
Right-wingers like cars (freedom, independence, individualism). Only
the bicycle crosses the political divide: it embodies both liberty
and equality." This is the first paragraph from a short article titled
"The Bicycle is Best" by Emma Duncan
