Maybe it’s not the bike, but the steroids

An article in today’s Wall Street Journal provides a funny take to the recent allegations that cyclist Lance Armstrong violated anti-doping rules (See ongoing coverage in Bicycling’s The Daily Lance). Joe Queenan’s WSJ column today carries the headline “Watch That Bike! Grandpa’s on Steroids” and includes this line: “Normal people know that the most dangerous thing on wheels is the fortyish frat boy just starting to go to seed” Any boomer cyclist who has ever envied those who zip by them, Queenan provides another excuse, though one firmly planted in his cheek.
