Are cyclists victims?

I don’t think so, but these folks do.

On Wednesday, May 18, at 7 p.m. local time I’ll be riding myself, doing the four-mile circuit of the Port Area—at somewhat more than 12 mi/h, I hope.

The e-mail I got from the local chapter of Self-Righteous Cyclists, ARC, gave the maximum speed for the Ride of Silence as 12 km/h, which I find rather amusing: hard to keep your bike upright at that speed.

"Cyclists aren't blocking traffic - we ARE traffic" movement, while deliberately slowing down the rest of the traffic and making hapless citizens late for work, job interviews, get-togethers, and child pickups, just shows that they are a bunch of self-righteous bastards. Haven't they heard of modelling the behaviour that they want to see? How about moving crisply, indicating their intentions, and yielding the right of way when required? How about making themselves visible and acting like traffic instead of little kids playing in it? Sheesh.
