When I drive, it’s a 4 door Tundra 4x4. When I’m home, I’m armed. 2hen I bike, I have double blinkers front and back, masses of flourescent, etc. When I vote, I vote as conservative as is available. Biking is not a political act. :-)

It sure seems to be taken as a political act on FR.

And I suppose not just on FR. I had a woman accuse me of "saving the earth" after I got off my bike in a supermarket parking lot. She beamed at me in what she apparently thought was a special moment of communion between two kindred liberal spirits.

I told her firmly that I was not saving the world, I was just riding my bike. I'm certain that she did not understand. If she knew my political views she probably would have spit on me.

Over here- it is a political militant act. It drives me nuts. They dart in and out of traffic and ride is a swarm. They love Sunday mornings so they can really mess with people. It is totally out of control. I have even spoken with the police about it, because I am going to have a new driver soon- and they make the roads hazardous. The police agree that they are a huge nuisance and cause danger- but it is a political green movement- and nothing is going to stop them. We even have miles and miles of parks and trials and places for bikes- and they love to mess with drivers. They are not biking to work, in groups of 23-30.
