Cars are astounding, incredible, brilliant. They’re also a disaster, exactly what we and the world never needed and need less and less with every passing day. They make us poor and fat, poison the environment, and isolate us from our fellow humans and even our true selves. So give up your car. It’s not your friend, it’s your enemy.

And what is your friend? The bicycle. A human invention that truly is wonderful. It’s the most efficient machine on earth, and makes life better in almost every way. So give one a spin.
