Answer:  LIFE CYCLE

(I really sped through today’s Jumble!  All the clue words were old favorites.  And, the jumble “mupel” has also been used before.  The other three appear to be new.

The answer letter layout gave nothing away.  It was nicely cryptic.  The leading nature of the clue/question, and the avoidance of the word bicycle made the answer like a ride through the park.

Fine bike shop cartoon.  Did you guys notice that the word bicycle on the sign is spelled “Bicylcle”?  I didn’t, until much later.  I don’t know if this was intentional – like some kind of cyclist’s joke – or if it was just a mistake.  If it is a mistake, it’s the first one I can remember!  “Keep the rubber side down”, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
