Whilst observing people on bicycles around London, I’ve developed a hypothesis that there’s a correlation between socio-economic status and certain behaviours. Some things in particular are obviously exclusive to the bourgeoisie:

  1. Using lights at night
  2. Adjusting the saddle above its absolute lowest position
  3. Riding on the road
  4. Riding on the correct side of the road
  5. Pumping up tyres
  6. Holding the handlebars (except when wheelie-ing; see next point)
  7. Using the front wheel
  8. Wearing clothing that affords peripheral vision
