Cycling helps the environment

Recommended Posts

After being enlightened in the last week as to the virtues of cycling and cyclists, i came accross this article and thought it was worth a post off-topic. I see that cyclists really do have an impact on the environment...

I agree I once slammed into a lamp post while taking a corner at around 50 km/h (that's 31 m/h for those who live in stone age and don't use metric system) on my bicycle. Surprisingly my bicycle was in worse shape that me. 

The answer to why was I taking a corner at that speed is : 

I was catching the green light.

I'm proud to be passing the 23,000 mile mark after 6 years cycling in extremely dense urban conditions in ALL WEATHER and to have not sustained any broken bones.

I trackstand the red lights and still pass the people who blow through them dangerously.

I'm still chubby and riding a hybrid and I out climb EVERYBODY.

I've recently changed my diet and the last of the weight is melting off.

After starting cycling at 300lbs, when I finally reach sub 200, I will have a laughable power to weight ratio.

Cycling is highly beneficial to the environment since it does not emit any harmful gases.The best part is that it reduces congestion.Apart from cycling I have also heard that gardening contributes a lot to the good will of the environment.I have been wondering whether any of you have taken gardening as a hobby.Though I am still a novice at it I feel very relaxed whenever I spend my time outdoors. It is also a good idea to have a garden shed around so that the gardening tools can be easily accessible. I recently bought one from a garden shed store ( http://inthebackyard.ca/ ).Does anybody else does gardening here?I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

      Hi, i was thinking about visual update 0.62, and it seems to me that the open zone should receive some updates too.
      Can we expect something new in these places? Some time ago I made examples of such places with animals likely to have a respawn place there. (pigs/boars)

             

             

      What do you think about that?
      I know that is not currently the most important but in visual phase these things when will be implemented could make the world more realistic and makes unique atmosphere in DayZ.

      So my DayZ life has been looking for new meaning lately. Ive travelled the entire map, have been learning the ins and outs of the larger cities as well as finding almost all of the items dayz has to offer. Crafting and different playstyles have been fun. Even some pvp here and there. Still havent tried bandit yet but it isnt very appealing to me. Bugs and feedback as usual but lately ive been logging on less and less.
      But then i remembered: bicycles.
      There was talk that they would be implemented. And then this last status report they reminded me that they are indeed coming down the pipe.
      And now, i have a new goal. Survival is not enough any more. Good gear and a belly full of food will not suffice. Oh no, there is a whole new game afoot.
      Shooting cyclists.
      Once the first itteration of the bicycle comes out, until my last dying breath, i vow to shoot at anyone riding a bicycle in DayZ.
      I dont care if it brings down every rabid infected on me from miles around. I will shoot at you, cyclist.
      Even if i have 1 bullet left and i am starving while looking down at a trophy sized boar or deer.... if i see a bike go by, or hear a little bell... they will get that otherwise life saving shot.
      I will go so far as collect bikes from around the map and set up my very own free bike exchange with signs and balloons just so that i can shoot at them as they ride away. Right in their dirty, rear tire wetspot cyclist backs.
      And it will please me.
      Right to my core.

      Firstly to clarify, this isn't about labor practices, sorry to disappoint you if you're really big into 19th century working routine innovations.
       
      When our characters become hot or overheated it would be nice if it accompanied a persistent "damp" status so long as the player is hydrated. Obviously being hot or overheated quickly kills your hydration and therein lies the danger as this sweat while able to cool you down a little can only last so long. What for a normal healthy and hydrated player is a minor thing like being hot for a short term could be dangerous for one not so well off. Additionally with quick changes in temperature from the environment, night coming or the like, sweating could actually be dangerous as it make you more prone to the cold. The particulars don't have to be as I've suggested but introducing a sweat mechanic could be really interesting alongside a new stamina system.
