Just read the article.
Stating the bleedin' obvious, yes.
Doesn't do it for me. (whereas cycling does)
Particularly dislike the "Bought houses. Got careers. Had children. They just don't have time to ride bikes"
I'm luckily enough to have a family who support my love of cycling. My wife spent 18 months cycling around NZ, Australia and USA with me, my son loves riding. So I put them first, and if that means a sunny saturday afternoon gardening, then that's fine because I know they'll give me a chance to go riding another day. But they come first. The bike is just a machine that can wait and I'm mature enough to accept that.
Riding does come before career in termas of what I'd like to do on a weekend, but as I'm not a bike-journo, the career pays for the bikes, so again, its a compromise, I sometimes work when in theory I'm "off".
everyone who is not like me is a nobber
That's pretty much how I read it. If you can't accept that everyone is different, then I suggest you keep quiet. Feel free to be passionate about how you feel, but never
tell other people that their interests are "wrong".
