Geezer Cyclists…


Why is Liguria full of old men wearing lycra, speeding past cars on the roadways on bicycles? And why are there no women on these bikes? And why is it that all the old ladies I see are sporting sensible shoes, knee high’s and usually toting 40 pounds of groceries up cobble-stoned staircases alone? Where are their husbands and sons? Riding fancy bicycles thinking they are super cool in their bright orange lycra shorts???

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for physical fitness and keeping healthy, blah, blah, blah. However I cannot see the benefit to riding a bike along the Riviera while breathing in car exhaust and dodging Italian driver’s and maniacs on scooters! To me that is a death wish on the hood of a Mercedes just waiting to happen…What’s wrong with this picture?
