Equine Medicine And The Bicycle

I’m a big fan of Gary Larson’s The Far Side comics. Like all the best surrealism, they have their roots in reality.

Like this one:

This got me thinking…

Diagnosis Treatment
Tired Ride a bike
Sad Ride a bike
Happy Ride a bike
Late for work Ride a bike
Rainy weather Ride a bike
Overweight Ride a bike
Look good in Lycra Ride a bike
Comfortable clothes Ride a bike
Meeting friends Ride a bike
Want alone time Ride a bike
Stuck in traffic Ride a bike
Crippling fuel prices Ride a bike
Too much shopping to carry Ride a bike
Global warming Ride a bike
Neighbourhood breakdown Ride a bike
Old car smell Ride a bike
Car repair bill Ride a bike
Car insurance costs Ride a bike

As people far smarter than me have pointed out – it’s not that the bicycle solves any one problem, so much as it being part of the solution to many problems.

    Great idea, I’ve been thinking about how the NHS should prescribe cycling as a cure for various ailments! I seem to remember a silly experiment where the NHS paid for gym membership? Come on doctors, start a research project using bikes to cure illness.

    There’s a great one available as a postcard, which would be fund to adapt but you woudld need some drawing skills.

    In its original form, it shows two dinosaurs, furtively grabbing a smoke. The caption is “Why the dinosaurs became extinct”.

    Reckon you could draw a dinosaur driving a car?
