Unfortunately you only need money or credit to buy a bike. No ability or brains , just like cars. Ever see the shopping cart traffic jams at the grocery store? Most of those people drove there in cars.

what a scrot.
"So what makes this protest different is that you're set to die, Bobby?"
--May well come to that.
"You start a hunger strike to protest for what you believe in. You don't start already determined to die or am I missing somethin' here?"
-- It's in their hands. Our message is clear. They're seeing our determination.

We encourage that- so they know what it feels like and they can stop being afraid of it.
The first time my wife had her car ABS come on, driving in snow (this was several years ago), the first thing she did was let go of the brakes so it wouldn't do that any more. She had no idea what it was, thought the buzzing/pulsating she felt in the pedal meant she was doing something bad to the brake and she should get off it. Like she should just crash into the cars stopped in front of her, without braking. Luckily I was with her and told her to push the brake pedal "to the floor" and KEEP IT THERE no matter what noise it made. Quickest way I could find to convey the general concept of what was needed to prevent us from crashing into the cars already stopped for the red light.
Advanced pancreatic cancer found 04/2010. Have outlived +/- 97% of patients with this diagnosis, but 08/2013 cancer now in liver, vascular system and lungs with 20+ lung tumors. Sick/weak sometimes, not riding much. No more treatments & now under Hospice care.
