A bicycle shop in Germany advertises their goods with 120 bikes mounted on the building’s exterior in lieu of a sign. So lovely.
If you’re a healthy adult and live in these areas you have little excuse for not riding a bike to work a couple of days a week. Hell, one day a week would be a great start for our public transport / public roads networks.
I ride my bike from just outside this zone, and I feel suitably self-righteous.
“I turn on Sesame Street and I go ‘Oh phew Sesame Street. This is much better because now he’ll learn how to count and spell.’ But now I’m watching it as an adult and I realize Sesame Street teaches kids other things. It teaches kids how to judge people and label people. That’s right. They got a character on there named Oscar. They treat this guy like shit the entire show. They judge him right in his face: ‘Oscar, you are so mean. Isn’t he kids?’ ‘Yeah Oscar! You’re a grouch!’ It’s like ‘BITCH I LIVE IN A FUCKING TRASH CAN. I’m the poorest motherfucker on Sesame Street. Nobody’s helping me.’ Then they wonder why kids grow up and step over homeless people: ‘Get it together, grouch. Get a job, Grouch.’” - Dave Chappelle
