I remember the years I spent in college. I had a lot of cash to throw around, I drove a fancy car, and parking was free and plentiful. And I’m sure it’s even better today. General Motors knows this of course, and wants to save college kids from the humiliation of riding a bike. I mean really, who rides their bike at school? People who suck, that’s who. If you bought into the whole “cycling is a whole lot of fun, good for you and the environment” B.S., don’t worry. GM has a debt program for you!
It’s time to stop pedaling, and start driving, says GM. If you’re on the fence about giving up your bike, the League of American Bicyclists might help you decide.
If you are a student looking to add tens of thousands of dollars of long term debt, care little about the environment, and want to lump two tons of steel around campus while paying through the nose for insurance, gas, and parking…General Motors has got a perfect deal for you. Bonus: it’ll make you fat and unhealthy! All you have to do is give up that dorky bicycle that’s easy to use, practically free, gets you some exercise and is actually fun to ride.
But riding a bike around campus is not the only place that bikes sucks. They’re awful for commuting as well. Here are 9 reasons why you should never bike to work over on semi-rad.com.
