The Cyclist

The Cyclist is a new one on me. Nashville buses have bike racks on the front to carry bikes for passengers, and the Cyclist sits on board.

The cyclist will be wearing serious cycling regalia – typically lots of lycra, a slim backpack, and a helmet. Yes, a helmet. While riding the bus. He or she will not remove the helmet, perhaps in case they are mistaken for a lowly pedestrian, as cyclists think they occupy a higher moral rung than those who walk or drive. The Cyclist sits ramrod straight, daring anyone to criticize, but deep inside we all wonder why they’re on the bus.
