A COOL AND LOGICAL ANALYSIS OF THE BICYCLE MENACE AND AN EXAMINATION OF THE ACTIONS NECESSARY TO LICENSE, REGULATE, OR ABOLISH ENTIRELY THIS DREADFUL PERIL ON OUR ROADS

It is noted that bicycle riding has increased everywhere in the U.S. and the author points out why the ungainly geometry and primitive mechanicals of the bicycle dictate that it should be removed from the streets. The principal arguments against bicycle use are listed (they are childish; undignified; unsafe; unAmerican; unfair; good exercise; the dislikeable kind of people who are bicycle riders.) The lack of licensing regulations, taxation, examinations, insurance, and speed control for bicycle riders is pointed out. However, it is noted, nothing may be done about them.
