 ProBicycle: Bicycle Advocacy BY Bicyclists - FOR Bicyclists
The Toy-Bicycle Syndrome began in the 1950's and is based upon the concept of bicycling as children's' play activity, which in fact it largely was in the America of 1950.
Motorists and the vast majority of bicycle owners have no understanding of the concepts and safety of proper cycling and how easy it is for motorists and cyclists to coexist.
Since the bicycle makes little demand on material or energy resources, contributes little to pollution, makes a positive contribution to health and causes little death or injury, it can be regarded as the most benevolent of machines.

The most telling trait of a rookie debut is inconsistency, a trait that Bicycle Day Boogaloo is chock full of.
The good news is that this means that there are brilliant spots to go with the, shall we say, less brilliant spots, times when the album sounds like it has the potential to be really great if not for the coasting quality of the rest of the disc.
