    "Politically, cyclists fall on the spectrum somewhere between Greens and Anarchists." icon_lol.gif In that case, I guess I'm a Green Anarchist on weekends!

    "Southampton, New York: Southampton prohibits riding a bike through town. It’s fine to thunder through the Potemkin village of million dollar boutiques in a gas-guzzling, tinted-windowed pimp mobile, but God forbid that anyone should roll through on their own power. It gets my vote as the worse bicycle town in America."

    Quite true. For years I've put more miles on my bike than car. Since I like big V8, fast, large cars the easy way to limit environmental impact is drive them less, and in my case, a lot less.

    It's just one of the dumbest things I ever heard of. They should be doing everything they can to encourage this.
