    i have too (meaning before that picture), but usually he's moving really fast on that bike and he zips by and you're just like "the fuck did I just see?" Yesterday he was parked right out on Park Ave.

    I love how he is always in some of the most conservative areas of the city.

    Woman biking in the bike lane on 9th Street. I really wish I know how to work phone camera - she's wearing a long, billowy dress w/ two oversized purse-type bags looped over a handlebar, riding one-handed while trying to text (read text?:confused:) w/ the other, with her beautiful innocent 2-year old daughter loosley strapped into a cargo seat. Neither are wearing helmets....:censored:

    I encountered the scooter variant of this yesterday. A young (4-ish) child whizzed past me at high speed on his scooter going down a hill, followed shortly after by his mother, busily texting and scooting and ignoring her child. She suddenly realized that he was heading for a busy intersection at full speed and called out for him to wait for her.

    Anybody on any type of wheels in the city instantly turns into a douchebag.

    Yes, lower congestion, cleaner air, and lower obesity rates are awful.

    Yesterday, this woman kept moving her car forward through the pedestrian crossing as tons of people, kids, strollers were crossing the street (walk signal). She was blocking the intersection and I guess she thought the best way out of it was to slowly ram pedestrians. Even more unbelievable is her reaction when I lift my hand and gesture to stop moving the car when we were going through with our stroller. I'm not to proud of what I did next, happy my kids didn't see me...


    This morning, the "art" at the delta lounge... :uhoh:

    Cyclists aren't required to learn the traffic laws and therefor act accordingly.

    Many cyclists think they are invisible and therefor can do what ever they want run red lights, going against traffic, ride on sidewalks, ram people etc. and it's apparently okay just to leave your bike anywhere, in front of doorways, right across the sidewalk, leaning on to cars/windows/children/dogs whatever.

    Many cyclists? How many? Got any evidence? And what does any of this have to do with your dubious claim that "The cities that are going full force on bikes, are in for a brute awakening"?
