Bicycle Extremists


We will eat your children.

The city of Santa Rosa, CA configured part of Humboldt Street into a Bicycle Boulevard as a pilot project last year. Some people don’t like sharing the road with their neighbors on bikes. Click here for the usual name-calling litany: extremist, insurgent, virus, arrogant, selfish. Don’t miss the brilliant commentary at All Hail the Black Market.

    There are Tea Party wackos everywhere. They think everyone who doesn’t give them money is a terrorist.

    I’m a ‘virus’? I think a virus is a small, well-structured thing with a built-in plan to replicate itself. I, however, am a large, poorly organized lump of protoplasm that can’t plan anything before having a cup of coffee. Even then, the plan probably won’t last until lunchtime.

    But the people who put up these posters, well, perhaps we should recommend that they go….replicate….themselves.

    i think the last big critical mass in Detroit will be end of October. Hopefully we’ll all have costumes. It’ll be really dark by then.
