What happens when we stop calling ourselves cyclists and just become people who ride bikes? Do we lose an important part of our identity? Do we gain something even better?
On the blog, On Our Own Two Wheels, Ezra Goldman acknowledges that in places where riding bikes to get around town is as ubiquitous as using utensils to eat food, cyclists lose some individuality, a degree of their uniqueness, that sets them apart in places where biking is more radical. But there is a tradeoff associated with that loss: a collective gain that for many of us would be unfamiliar, a little scary, and utterly gratifying. Do you agree? Read Ezra’s post here.
