"Car drivers should be aware…that they are in a machine that could kill and that they should behave responsibly…"
Well, they are called potholes…
Cyclist's flower power spreads the love after potholes bloom in icy weather. See also Pete Dungey's photos of his gardening work. Very, very cool. [twitterer]
Sense of security
Scoffing at "scofflaw cyclists"
Best. Comment. Ever.
I don't usually read the comments sections of newspaper websites, as they tend to be the gathering place of knuckle-dragging neaderthals, but I did chance upon this little gem by "Brighton Snob" (February 10, 2010, 8:24AM), in response to an article about new weekend parking restrictions on Beach Road:
This is outrageous. Everyone knows roads are for parking cars on, how else do you explain the Monash freeway? And it's not right that all the millionaires living along beach road be required to share their [road?] with peasants, after all its their money that lobbies the government to force poor people to pay more taxes to fix the roads. Bicycle riders should know their proper place, the ditch on the side of the road. Furthermore, as someone that once saw a bicyclist jaywalk, I am an expert and can confidently assert that all bicyclists are rapists.
I think the debate ended just there.
Fixie. Hipster. 'nuff said.
