25 things fat people shouldn't do: Ride a bike

25 Things Fat People Shouldn't Do is an unabashed middle finger to the preposterous idea that any human who weighs more than the status quo does not deserve to live a full and well rounded (ahem) life. The list of 25 is composed word for word from direct lists of sheer assholery found on the internet. These range from the absurd to the profoundly shameful, and I will be disproving this offensive notion with style. May the Chub Club live long and prosper!"-The Militant Baker

Ride a bike
Ok, I haven't ridden a bike since I was 17, and I specifically remember being terrified then because it had been so long since I rode a bike. I think I was about 10 the time before that. So I'd only ridden a bike once in 15 years. 

Then, when we went to London, we finally hired Boris Bikes. I was terrified. I seriously thought I was going to die but, as it turns out, it's true what they say- You really never do forget how to ride a bike! 
Amazingly enough, the bike didn't buckle under my weight. Incredible, right? It did make my wobbly bits wobble a bit but who cares? You can see a video of me wobbling on the bike here


  1. Haha, I am fat and I ride my bike everyday! But here in the Netherlands everyone rides one, so no one looks at you funny even though you're fat. Lovely video. Did you buy anything at Lush?

  2. Oh my god, I hadn't ridden a bike in years and my friend forced me onto a Boris bike when I visited him. From the sounds of it you did better than me!

  3. Very cute! I am kind fo afraid of bikes and have been avoiding doing this challenge, but I need to get over that fear. They seem like a great mode of transportation.

  4. Everyone should ride bikes! Because there is a bike for everyone (3 wheelers, recumbents, cruisers, touring, fixies, and the list goes on!) I learned to ride my bike in my 40s and have logged thousands of miles and am stronger and fiercer (although not really thinner) because of it!
