With all due respect, Mr. Wells, I’m not sure that I agree with the equation: adult on bike = hope for the human race. For years I’ve driven around my hometown and passed a man who rides a 10-speed … wearing a motorcycle helmet. With the face mask down. And it’s tinted. I’m afraid I don’t have much hope there.
I don’t mean to be pessimistic about H.G.’s statement. I’m just challenging the notion that an adult on a bike is always a good thing.
