Ridekick: The Left-Handed Bike

Ridekick

I get a lot of press releases. Most require no reading. However, the press release announcing a left-handed bicycle was so mirth-inducing as to elicit giggles from me even as I was making my peanut butter sandwich for lunch. When a press release for a product I don’t actually want stays with me that long, well I have to think about why.

Then I thought about the date, so I clicked on the link. Nothing happened. I don’t know if this is a joke or not, but I figured, why should I decide? I’ll let you all be the judge on this.

Here’s the text that was included:

 

Pedal More Naturally

A new product designed specially for left-handed people.

We know how challenging it is for the left-handed person to constantly adapt to the biases of the right-handed world.  It’s high time Lefties had a bike that plays to their natural-born strength.

Ridekick International announces the all new left-handed bicycle. Take advantage of this opportunity today!

    The benefits for left handed cyclists are questionable. Australians, Kiwis, and South Africans could really benefit from this, though.

    Besides being forced to drive on the left side of the road and cope with nonstandard toilet flush, the people of these countries must race backwards on the velodrome. A small adjustment like this could do wonders for the Antipodean peoples. You might not be able to beat it, but at least you can take your best shot at mitigating the Coriolis Effect.
