    "London Cyclists Too White, Male and Middle Class"

    Take away their bikes and true equality will be achieved!

    When a group of people of European descent like something and form a "scene" - be it music (Black Metal/Gothic), bicycling, building miniature train sets, playing Dungeons & Dragons, etc. - it has to be racist and hence it needs to be wrecked. Because not only are we racist, every activity we ourselves participate in is considered racist. And if it's only men who do it, it's also considered to be an example of toxic masculinity.

    Just pause for a minute and think about the absurd new level of political correctness that has been reached in our countries in only the last seven days, it beggars belief! Meanwhile, Ramadan is still ongoing, which means us natives can't eat in public in "Muslim neighborhoods" and there's also a sharp rise in knife attacks - we've seen 10 of those in the Netherlands in the month of May.

    Too few women and people from ethnic minority groups cycle in London and more must be done to promote diversity among a largely white, male and middle class biking community, the city’s walking and cycling commissioner has said.

    Grand schemes, such as the Cycle Superhighway network of partially-segregated routes linking the suburbs with the centre, are too often perceived as simply a way of getting “middle-aged men cycling faster around the city”, Will Norman acknowledged.

    He said he was considering setting diversity targets for London’s cycling population to ensure progress was achieved

    Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups account for about 15 per cent of the city’s cycle trips – around two-thirds less than Transport for London estimates it could be.

    Speaking to The Independent, Mr Norman, whose job it is to deliver on Sadiq Khan’s pledge to make walking and cycling safer and easier in the capital, said: “There is a problem with cycling and the way it is perceived of getting middle-aged men cycling faster around the city, which is not the objective at all.

    “It touches on something which is a real challenge for London cycling, which is diversity.”

    Mr Norman, the capital’s first cycling commissioner, said he wanted to tackle the “gender divide” among cyclists that had spawned the term middle-aged men in lycra – or Mamils.

    He added: “Even when we have seen the growth in the number of cyclists, we haven’t seen that diversity.

    Unbearable Anti-Whiteness

    May 31, 2018 by Alex McNabb

    It was recently brought to my attention that London’s “walking and cycling commissioner” stated that cycling was “too white” and was Deeply Concerned about the lack of gender and racial diversity among operators of two-wheeled pedal-powered conveyances. Actual diversity quotas are seriously being considered to address the glaring absence of women, Muslims and people of color on bicycles. This was the final spoke for me, and although I’ll briefly focus on this particular example, the trend of noticing white people doing a thing and then calling it racist is built on a mile high foundation of bullshit opinion pieces.

    Whites are the only group you can interrogate and scrutinize when you observe “too many of them” enjoying themselves.

    The basic theory is, if more than two white folk are engaged in some kind of hobby, it’s in dire need of diversity and the simple presence of Caucasoid Numerical Superiority will scare all the people of color away. We could probably critique the strange phenomena of implicit racial bias towards white people going completely unremarked, as if it’s just natural to fear the all Aryan bowling league. Clearly if we were talking about white people feeling intimidated by a large presence of blacks, that would imply RACISM, but the converse is never true.

    In the case of the “MAMIL menace“, in which cycling is dominated by white Middle Aged Men In Lycra, policy makers are scratching their heads as if the ethnic homogeneity is evidence of some vast racist conspiracy. It makes me wonder if these idiots really believe that there are violent skinhead cyclist gangs silently cruising on their overpriced carbon fiber roadbikes and looking for negros to beat up with their bicycle pumps. Is the Tour de France full of Nazis? Are we really supposed to believe that women and minority groups are somehow intimidated by gangly cardio-fags wearing skintight lycra? Is #MeToo going to hit the cycling world?

    They know that the Gimmygrants come to our contries
    to climb up the social ladder .

    These Schlimmigrants don't want to cycle,
    because they did not came to cycle.
    They came for wealth !

    Cycling is a sign of poverty.
    People, who own a bicycle,
    are aware though,
    that they may have to replace their bicycle
    several times a year , because of bicycle-theft.

    If I would want to start to ride a bicycle, I would need
    to calculate €300 for a new bike ,
    and additionally €1800 for six replacements each year.

    But €2100 a yeaar is still cheap in comparison to a car.

    I own a bicycle, but store it in my apartment and use it aprox. once a month.
