How to Give Up Cycling — by Red Smoke

"Following the shocking revelation that heat generated by vigorous exercise is a major contributor to global warming we are all having to reassess our own activities. It comes as a major surprise to many of us that storing energy in human fat is actually a valuable way of reducing our impact on the environment. Government may be introducing plans to extract this fat by large scale liposuction programmes and storing it underground but we all have a responsibility to reduce our participation in ecologically hazardous physical activity. Looking at my own lifestyle, it was easy to identify my cycling habit as a major problem. I'm only too aware of the amount of heat that cycling can generate but cutting down was not going to be easy so six months ago I turned for help to my friend Jeremy."
