Research shows that bikes can talk. The problem, however, is that many of us don’t understand what they are saying. Fortunately, and like most Americans, I’ve an ear for foreign languages.
In 2018, I conducted a series of exploratory investigations to document the musical preferences of recumbent Dutch bikes. The following series presents a small sample of the results of this path-breaking anthro-velocipede research.
Although this ground-breaking documentary photographic series obviously requires no further introduction, I offer this quote from the film Easy Rider:
“I mean, it's real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Of course, don't ever tell anybody that they're not free, 'cause then they're gonna get real busy killin' and maimin' to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they're gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em.”
