    John, the “Set Record Straight” link is broken.

  • Wow! That is such a classic anti-bike rant it’s almost cliche.

    Although, the article does contain an innovation i’ve never read in a bike-bashing article… Since when do cars + seniors = safety? There’s a reason why they make you take driver’s exams more frequently the older you get.

    And i get the whole “freedom of the open road” sentiment. No one likes a road trip more than i do. However, being stuck in traffic on Milwaukee or Harlem in Niles doesn’t seem much like freedom to me.

    Also… the “Cars save lives.” assertion is particularly ignorant when talking about the number one leading cause of non-natural death in this country.

    Where did that Niles paper find such a dinosaur?
