Is this the next front in the anti-bicycling war, the war to protect us
On leaving the office today, I saw the guy with the milk crate on the
back rack had bought a new bike - or, perhaps, someone new had taken
over his usual parking place.
I didn't recognize the bike's brand name, so I went over for a closer
look. Seemed to be "A2F" with the "2" as a superscript (as in
"squared"), model seemed to be "Barracuda." New to me.
Then I saw the sticker on the top tube:
"Never ride a bike at night without lights!" [OK, good advice.]
"Never ride a bike without an ANSI, ASTM or Snell approved helmet!"
[Well, you _know_ what I think about that.]
"Never ride a bike when it's wet outside!" [??????????]
I suppose it's just a matter of time before fenders are made illegal.
We can't keep condoning, let alone supporting, such irresponsible
And you folks in the Pacific Northwest - just give it up, OK? Get
yourself an SUV like God intended!
