I think the very best thing about reading discussions by cycling advocates is enjoying the finesse they display when defending a scofflaw practice they know to be wrong both legally and morally and yet they bend over backwards to soften the criticism of themselves and their fellow cyclists.

Deftly pointing the finger at people-of-color for breaking the law while trying to sound sympathetic is pathetic.

One knucklehead decided to make it an issue of race, as if the Urban Cycling Movement gave a farthing about people-of-color on bicycles. In fact the really interesting reading comes when you listen to these same so-called journalists rant about people-of-color who riding against traffic in the bike lane.

They even have a cute name for the practice, ‘salmon-ing‘.
