Cards for Insight: The Rolls & the Bicycle

In a network, seeing ourselves through.

- What do you mean, bicycle?
- Here it is, take a look?
(leaning out the car window)
- Ah, you mean a bike! Nice, would love to take a ride!
- Cool! Why don’t you?
- Erh, you mean, now?
- Yes.
- Can I remain here? It’s really comfy inside my Rolls…
- No, you can’t.
- Do you mean I actually have to climb out of the car?
- Yes.
- Erh, ehm, can I at least bring the minibar with me?
- Well, I guess we could find a way to remove the minibar and strap it onto the bicycle with duct tape or something…

Cards for Insight: Trust your moves, trust movement.

- Cool!
- Then again, you can’t actually drink from the minibar while pedaling.
- Pedaling? You mean I have to pedal, using my own legs and feet?
- Yes.
- Can’t I tell my driver to pedal for me?
- Well, yes you could but you see, if you look through the perspex, you’ll notice that there’s no-one at the wheel, your driver left long ago which is why your trip has been a bit bumpy lately. You left the actual road around 2008 thereabouts and have been going through the fields ever since.
- Aha. I kind of noticed that it was only with difficulty I could juggle things in here.
- So, you coming?
- You mean you think it’s safe for me to climb outside?
- Not only is it much more safe for you to climb out of the car and hop on to the bike, there’s a bus further down the road and if you make the effort, we can all continue on our journey. Once there, you can put your bike on the bus roof until we’re close enough to your new digs.
- Ok then, erh, can I still bring my minibar?
- I’ve actually got another idea for you, right next to your new digs there’s a good place to start a micro-brewery. Fancy join and help distill some good concoctions?
- Would it be possible to build a whole new minibar there then?
- It most certainly would.
- Ok then, I’m in!
- Well, yes, you are. Still in, still inside the Rolls…
- Ah, I see what you mean, Wait up, I’ll join (climbs outside and hops onto the other bike, the two of them pedal along around the bend…)
