Beware of Mile High Biking

Posted by anandrr on August 21, 2008

The Democratic Convention will be held in Denver soon, and the Denver Police is looking suspiciously at people with bicycles. Obviously these fringe liberal convention protestors would go around on bicycles from their hippie communes to the convention center. But here’s the thing, Denver is a mile above sea level, places where most of the rest of America comes from is much lower, and the left fringes obviously reside almost entirely at sea level. One of the things we learnt the hard way is that once you get used to the abundance of oxygen at sea level, it’s hard to do anything strenuous at a mile above. We used to live in Salt Lake City and go mountain biking every day. Then we moved to the Bay Area and a couple years later when we tried mountain biking in Salt Lake City again, we quickly found that our body wanted a lot more oxygen than the thin air there could provide. If I were the Denver police, I would stop looking for the bicyclists with maps, just look for the hippies who got stoned the previous night and can now barely stand next to their bikes as they gasp for air.

And what, they couldn’t just head to the suburbs and find Cartman? (Watch episode)
