Horrible Hundred

Anti Aging

Did you realize that because we're healthy roadies we're actually harming the environment?
That's right, according to professor Karl T. Ulrich of the Wharton School in Philadelphia. He says our dedication to cycling makes us fit, which makes us live longer, which ultimately makes us use more precious natural resources.

The proof seems to think we would be doing the world a favor if we'd stop riding so we'd die sooner.  Maybe he has a point. Think of all the food and natural resources dead people don't consume. Obviously, a long life is the enemy of conservation. 

Ulrich wrote a paper titled "The Environmental Paradox of Bicycling." In it he describes "a basic societal tension between the quest for longevity and the environmental costs of increased population."
