A banker made the economists think this when he said:
“A cyclist is a disaster for the country’s economy: he doesn’t buy cars and doesn’t borrow money to buy. He don’t pay insurance policies.

He is not getting obese.

They add nothing to the country’s GDP.

Choose wisely: a bike or a McDonald’s? It’s something to think about.
