tragic irony

On p 145 of Alvord's _Divorce Your Car!_: a subhead "Bicycling can save your life and your health"

On p 146: a callout box quoting Ken Kifer bragging about how at fifty-one he looked so young and healthy compared to a forty-three year old at the laundromat.

My regular readers _know_ I'm all about bicycling, walking, taking public transit and blah, blah, bleeping, blah. But it's still a shock reading Kifer being quoted in this context.

ETA: Not so tragic, George Bliss, supplier of human powered vehicles (tricycles, IIRC) to No Impact Man and his family, gets a mention on page 153.
