Friday Funny: Take the Bus That's Also a Bike
"One British fitness company is planning to kill two birds with one stone and combine your morning commute with a fitness class," according to an article by Rachel Thompson.
"1Rebel has announced plans to transform a London bus into a mobile spinning studio, so you can combine your commute with a high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout," adds Thompson. Yes, you read that correctly: a bus, turned into a room full of stationary bikes.
Sommer Mathis, editor of CityLab had the proper response to this position:
You could just RIDE AN ACTUAL BIKE omg https://t.co/hPGojdfMan

As always, this says something about how willing people are to ride bikes, as long as they are stationary and not set loose on the mean streets of the city of Anywhere.
