A lot of people don’t realize that the relationship between bears and bicycles go back all the way to the first World War, when the Chinese tried to teach bears to fire rifles and ride bikes at the same time. And while that sounds impossible to us, we’ll never really know since that original group of scientists was eventually eaten. But devouring one’s foes seems too violent for the contemporary bear, and certainly not as much fun as pedaling around his foe in circles. Bears and bikes were really made for each other. Bears would totally kick ass in the Tour de France if it weren’t for their hatred of all things Parisian. Well, that and they keep eating their sponsors.
