Cure for 'I:h Common Cold By Vanessa Finan Illustrated by Creg Moreland One Valley College student has discovered an exclusive cure for the common cold. lor approximately one year, Roger Foster has made bicycling 'his sole means of transportation. Immunity from the common cold is his reward. He believes that this medical breakthrough might be attributed to his cycling efforts. foster rides his bicycle an average of 150 miles per week While other Valley students drive a comparable amount in their air-conditioned, automatic, bucket-seated automobiles, they consider their physical fatigue point reached when they have to walk from the parking lot to their first class. Foster rides a more strenuous gamut on the city streets than most drivers do on the freeways. He relies on physical endur- ance, perseverance, and determination and not the battery in a car. Through his enrollment in the advanced class, Foster has come to appreciate the feeling of "oneness" that cycling offers. Rural traveling, Foster explained, is one of the most beneficial experiences that his non-air or noise polluting bicycle affords him. He described the viewing of unaroused wildlife as being available only to people on foot and bicycles. The constant exposure to the elements, a reliable means of transportation, and its subtle gesture of social rebellion are just a fegv of the rewarding factors involved in Foster's allegiance to his ike. Students of Ed Bush's bicycle class get into gear as they wheel and deal their way through class. .I foster explained, "lt's not all roses. You have to be on the defensive a heck of a lot," when commuting within the Valley. In his opinion, however, generally most motorists return an equal amount of respect to bicyclers when it is paid to them. On occasion, lioster has silently been challenged by a competitive motorist, who noticed the speed that he is capable of achieving. Man and the automobile might still be apprehen- sive about accepting the primitive "man mover" as a possible inter-city transportative equal, On the car-monopolized streets during the Los Angeles rush hour, Ifoster maintains an averge of 20 miles an hour. This speed is upheld by lioster through his innate ability to time stop lights, thus eliminating treacherous stop and go riding. When city riding is done, Foster is inclined to feel safer when on his bike than he would in a car because of its easy manueverability. Safety on the streets, bike maintenance and physical fitness are lust a few aspects of cycling covered in the beginning and advanced classes at Valley. liven though most of the students enrolled became affiliated with bikes at an early adolescent age, bicycling class instructor ljd Bush, assistant professor of physical education, stresses that the first thing he attempted to teach his students was how to ride a bike. Hush explained that some of his students have sophisticated 10-speed bicycles and during the entire span of their ownership the student had riden the bike continually in one gear. One of liush's first tasks, therefore, was to impress students with the potentiality of their bicycles and how to manipulate them to their best advantage and riding comfort. Valley is the first college in the district to initiate a bicycle class into the physical education curriculum. Because of its popularity, Valley's bicycle class, with its two-year standing, has had to turn away students for each available class per semester. instruction in fundamental bicycle maintenance, physical fitness, and bicycle safety constitute the beginning curriculum. The advanced bicycle class is "Based purely on physical fitness and endurance," explained Bush. "The class is specific- ally designed for the students who are the top bicycle enthu- siasts here at the college." Class excursions include rides between 10-12 miles during one session. This distance doubles the beginning classes' scheduled trips. A definite acceptance of the bicycle in our contemporary times was emphasized by Bush in some statistics made available through Schwinn's public relations representative, Woody Crabb. Crabb reported that for the first time since World War l, bicycles outsold cars. With the impressive figure of 20 million bicycle sales for the 1972 year, perhaps Contac is on its way out. Roger Foster will become a rich man if he can patent his cure forthe common cold.
