Why Do We Break Our Own Rules?
When we complain about riders who “Salmon” and declare their actions not to be in the best interests of others, why then do we execute “against the traffic” riding during Critical Mass Rides? Either we do not recognize that riding headlong into oncoming traffic is “Salmon-ing” or we reserve the right to dislike this behavior on when people of color execute it.
Do We Best Honor The Memories of Fallen Cyclists This Way?
The Chicago Urban Cycling Community just buried one of their own who was hit by an illegally intoxicated driver. You would think that operating a vehicle while intoxicated would therefore NOT be something that they advocated, practiced or demonstrated to others, especially to fellow cyclists. You would be wrong.
