I thought it was about time somebody juxtaposed. . .

(i) weird bikes made out of single lengths of zinc wire, painted in wacky, psychedelic colours

and

(ii) boring bike races,

. . .in order to both. . .

(a) highlight

and

(b) ridicule the way the world is going

. . .I got so fed up waiting for somebody to do this, that I decided to do it myself.
