Cyclists are seen by the general public as red light jumping Lycra louts, right? Not according to a study by Mindlab International for the British Heart Foundation (BHF), which has found that people consider cyclists to be 13 per cent more intelligent, 13 per cent cooler and 10 per cent more charitable than the average person.
In the survey of 600 adults, almost two thirds even admitted to liking Lycra, and 23 percent would choose to go on a date with a cyclist over a selection of other sportspeople.

They also found cyclists were more handsome, made better lovers, helped little old ladies across the street and helped feed the homeless on weeknights. Yeah right. Presumably did the survey at a local cycling club.

so we have always known that cyclists are a pretty special bunch. These results just confirm that the rest of the nation feels the same."
