I loved this post “Why Bikes Make Smart People Say Dumb Things”. I run into animosity toward cyclists all the time and it totally confounds me. Sure, there are some bad bike seeds out there who blow a stop sign or swerve in and out of traffic, but the majority of us are law abiding citizens who just want to exercise or find a cleaner way to get to work. Not to mention all of the proven benefits of biking. How did a right of passage of childhood garner so much attention and vitriol from a vocal minority? In my dream world, the U.S. would adopt similar behavior.
