Guide to Bike Culture
This Guide to Bike Culture was presented during the Best of Ignite Seattle session @Gnomedex 09. Complied with Mark V, Frank Steele, Jason Swihart, and David Schloss.

Thank you to Brady Forrest for inviting Byron to present it.

Note the guide isn't complete. The Ignite format is 20 slides, every 15 seconds, for a total of 5 minutes. The extended version would include slides like

• Freeriders - would be faster if their clothes were tighter
• Cross racers -- hirsute, superfit badasses, punish road weanies
• Poseurs - into the scene, but don't ride
• Tourist -- no faster than 15 mph
• Triathletes - 1/3 the cyclist with triple the disposable income

and so on. Also note to avoid sexism at male-dominated geek conferences, we left out slides featuring well-heeled, attractive European women riding around Denmark, Seattle, and Austin.

The intent of the guide is humorous and we kept it tame for the fun of it. Snark is in Bike Snob's kitchen.

Lastly, what would you add to the guide?
