What do Psychologist know? Well, seemingly sod all after reading this article "Has your man just bought a new bike? Looks like he's having a mid-life crisis"
It seems, according to this Psychologist, if a man of middle years gets on a bike he is having a mid-life crisis.
No thoughts have gone into the fact that 1) We are all far more aware of how important it is nowadays to leave the car behind. 2) Petrol prices are so sky high now it's virtually impossible to feed your car and feed yourself comfortably. 3) The government have spent a lot of money advertising and encouraging people to get on their bikes to take more cars off the road. 4) Health ministers are also encouraging people to do more exercise.
They can't have it both ways. Either it's healthy, green, economical and frees up congestion on the roads, or those of us that cycle are trying to hold on to our youth. I know which one I know it is.
I do so wish some of these experts would put their brain into gear before trying to make a name for themselves by coming out with such twaddle.
