Why has cycling historically been a white sport? Why will it always be a white sport?

1. Cycling has historically been a European sport, adult cycling pretty nearly disappeared from North America from 1920-1970.
2. Cycling competitively is expensive, and non-white people tend to be less wealthy on average.
3. Cycling has continued to be a white sport/activity in North America because you're much more likely to start riding when you know someone else who does, so there's simply fewer opportunities for non-white people to be drawn into the sport.

>>908181
Because only white folk are big enough faggots to wear lycras.

I think that competitive cycling requires a lot of intelligence compared to basketball or running.

It's a white sport because white people have unique hobbies. The MAJORITY of blacks don't have hobbies other than basketball or football.

How often do you hear a black person say, "I enjoy pottery/calligraphy/metalworking/scrapbooking/sewing/whittling/ice skating/leather crafting/bird watching/bee keeping/mountain biking/kayaking/antiques/airsoft/metal detecting/hunting/hiking/astronomy/urban exploration/archery/horseback riding/SWIMMING/."

That's right, you don't. It's no one's fault but their own.

dog, i don't know any white people that do any of that shit. you don't know any black people, but that's because you don't want to. here in the A, i cross an all black group ride on my way home from work about once a week, and they're all on nicer bikes than me and in full kit. the reason you don't see anything like that is because you never leave your basement over in Cornfield fucking Iowa. My friend i know from my club days is in the co-op like once a week with his whole crew, they're all building bikes. nice ones, too.

and yes, >>908182, Major Taylor sonned every honky on the planet in his day, so stay mad.

Why the fuck do you faggots always use that as your argument? I'm in the deep south and have had to live around, go to school with, and work with these fuckers all my life. I've definitely grown to dislike them and their "culture".

Also
>I don't know any white people that do any of that shit

Are you serious? You don't know white people that like hunting, antiques, or hiking? Biggest fucking lie I've ever heard.

Btw I can tell just from the way you type that you're some northerner faggot who frequents streetwear threads on /fa/

You need money to have a chance of being a competitive cyclist. Sports like Soccer, Basketball and even American Football have cheaper and easier to obtain equipment. Why get into an expensive sport like cycling when I can buy a $20 soccer ball and kick it around until I'm Pele?

It might just be anecdotal, but I seem to recall reading that as Chinese cities become more developed the bicycles disappear.
>>
>>908244
They don't ride for sport. They ride in order to not die of starvation and various disease.
>>
>>908335
In large cities maybe, but they are still pretty prevalent in suburb and rural areas.

When I was in shanghai last year, they are still around, although not as many as in the 90s. Ironically, the government actually tries to get them to ride their bikes back to reduce traffic jam and air pollution

It has also historically been a male sport. As a sport, as opposed to commuting it requires both a lot of money, and a lot of dedication.

I doubt it will change to be a lot more than white and male. In California there are plenty of Asian males into it though.

>>908389

cycling is just not a sport for fat people, mystery solved

>>908410
Does it hurt to sit on your vagina? Any cum dumpster can tell me?
>>
>>908410
Asian males have dedication, I hate to sound like a complete bigot, I think their lack of testosterone makes them inferior in competitive, cycling. The negros have too much testosterone and not enough mental capacity. Cycling is a large in part mental game.

Cycling is a Euro sport as >>908188 said. There's not a ton of blacks or Asians in Europe.

Major Taylor, google it. he was a good sprinter, ended up broke as shit, a drunk near my neighborhod. died in hospice. Racism and being a white Chicagoan go hand in hand.

Go to Africa, you'll see thousands of black cyclists. Not lycra wearing posers. Just normal people riding old bicycles.
>>
>>908599
Normal in a shantytown =\= normal in a first world country

Lycra is useful, casual. So is electricity and running water. If you have a problem with that, I suggest you move to a mud hut and eat flies.

International marathons tend to be dominated by East Africans. They don't dominate cycling simply because they don't have exposure to it from an early age. Some people are trying to change that. there was a Kenyan guy named John Njoroge Muya who was doing really well until he was killed by a fucking cager during a race.

What about Kenya-tier blacks

I'm in the deep south as well, I don't know about hiking but I can name plenty of black people who hunt (typically older army guys) and I know at least one african dude who sells antiques. (Mostly woodcarvings and shit from africa like giraffes, and elephants etc.)

Sounds to me like you got a case of mad and project it through assumptions you've made about people based on their skin color.

>>913113
But why is it 'plus'?
>>
>>913132
Because in america they don't integrate sales tax for some strange fucking reason.
>>
>>913137
so it's easy to separate the tax from the sale price.
every state defines their own sales tax, so people in a state generally know the percentage of a dollar spent that will go towards tax without having to do any calculations based on the price of the item.

also it's a mentality of "this is what we want, but _this_ is what the government wants from us", delineating the tax amount ensures the customer understands where the pricing comes from.
>>
>>908181
Nigga stole my bike
>>
>>913140
Seems like a good idea. Why isn't the price '$5 plus rent, electricity, wages and tax' though? Delineating rent, electricity and wages would go even further to ensuring the customer understands where the pricing comes from.
>>
>>913276
It makes prices look cheaper. That's it.
