Cititbike has made all the difference to getting around town, bike sales and dedicated bike lanes are up and New Yorkers totally love bikes. As do celebs, the number of celebs seen canoodling with the latest hot squeeze while riding bikes is also up. So pity about the scumbags.
Yup the other thing about bikes is they are quick and maneuverable all the better to rob you with. See the video of blatant scumbag grabbing a women’s cell phone as he glides past and then she gives chase. Hope she caught him or someone else did.
And the other thing about bike riders, (it’s like guns, the bikes are blameless), is some of them get it into their heads that they own the road. Period. and then defy road rules and in the process putting a lot of law abiding New Yorkers at risk. STOP IT stupid people who won’t recognize which direction the traffic is flowing in. Hope each an every one of you gets a ticket, lots of tickets. See perfect illustration of bad bike behavior below.
