I rode back then and, yes, I can personally attest that beer can throwage was a thing.

That sounds about right. Bike riding flourished in the 1970s, as gas prices rose, but the all-car push back hit hard in the 1980s as gas prices began to fall back and energy efficiency seemed less important.

Yes, I rode a real ten-speed in cutoff jean shorts and a Slickee Boys T-shirt. What about it?

Its good to see that bikers have been trying to live up to the stereotypes for the past 30 years.
