Example text

Wildly parked cars, unexpected opening of car doors, alarmed horses, wild dogs, pedestrians, joggers, abruptly stopping vehicles, or trucks coming from side roads foster mutual hand signals – if unsignaled, such dangers result in panicked chain reactions throughovut the group. One communicates using silent elbows and raw muscle power. Not without foundation, neuroscientists label humans as the animal that possesses “we-intentions,” and the “bike-we” is intensely preoccupied with the security of everyone in the group.

The concept of intergenerational comparison between riders is difficult to implement short of fixing the location and the bicycle used. This is not possible. This level of restriction would satisfy the record’s aims, but in the end it shows how ethical decisions are easier to implement in offices, on paper, than in the real world, where one has to push on those pedals. New technology is inherently expensive, limited in supply, and expertly informed, which to some could be unobtainable or unfair (if it is unobtainable, it is not a matter of being “seen”).

The thing is mute, but humanity is talkative. Homo sapiens is the living species, but its being is not solely what it is by nature. Being human is to be changeable biology, equipped with a flexible and learning brain, said to be taking form according to the things we do, experience, and reflect on. In spite of different inevitabilities like the history of evolution and the law of gravity, human nature is not determined, nor is the human body simply a load. When the neuronal couplings that concern the bike are grounded and formed in the brain, the synapses are influenced by spatial interpretations, the sensual quality of rough rides, the linguistic exchanges in a group of tense riders heading towards the final sprint, the appraisal of new asphalt with no hole.
