I have a confession to make: inasmuch as I hate bicycles (or after the local entrepreneurs thieves get to them: carcasses of bicycles) piled chock-a-block on street signs I rather like this.

  2. The word did not prepare me for the image. Perhaps we need to alter it to “uberclusterfuck”? A sight like this needs a prefix!

  6. I actually saw that yesterday… and was thinking as I stopped to look at it, that if it was in GP, I would have seen it here on this blog. And so the end of the world begins…

  8. That’s pretty incredible. But how can you hate bicycles? I realized yesterday that my bike is my best friend. I’m going to cry when I have to put it away for the winter.

  10. Maybe it’s bicyclists you can’t stand?? I personally hate all of car culture with a passion, yet I was almost relieved this summer when I got my bike stolen. It meant that I wouldn’t be taking part in the single most dangerous aspect of my life, riding the car-stanked streets of brooklyn. And as annoyed I am with drivers, I share equal disdain for every single bicyclist out there who rides the wrong way on a one way street, flies past red lights and disregards all traffic laws all while listening to their iPod. And then expects sympathy when they get mowed over. Idiots.

Tell me what you're thinking...
