No greenhouse gas, a tiny carbon footprint up your ass...

Can you laugh at yourself? Good, because you're probably in here somewhere, even if it's as a roadie cameo. Every once in a while we see a video that makes both cyclists and non-cyclists spit their coffee over the keyboard and have a good old belly laugh. Chapeau to Sons of Science for a beautifully observed paean to the city cyclist. The lyrics are on the YouTube page for the vid. for the sake of your NSFW filter, we won't print them here.

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

A wasted opportunity. It would be a much better song without the swearing. Shame.  2

Swearing is cool. And the horn solo is genius.

Swearing is most effective when not overdone - here, just a wee bitty too much

Very funny all the same - guess I'm a cross between the lycra racer & the angry commuter

Yeah, swearing once or twice for effect would have been OK.
But in the words of John Lydon "Ooo - a rude word!!" it soon loses its shock value and becomes pathos.

Well, it's a rap, so profanity is what you would expect.

I particularly like the guy who "every day [does] the Tour de F*ck-you"

I love the guy who has a cuppa on his bike.

Total fried gold.

The only character who's missing is the hi-viz-black-leggings-rush-hour-road-warrior, but maybe he's a UK creation?
