haha i can't even watch the whole thing. it's hilarious.

i can't believe how the people we've elected in our government just try and make fun of each other.

his argument is all "the democrats are dumb, bikes are dumb."


if we had safe bike lanes tons more people would ride.

I can't find where it says in the biking laws if cyclists are actually entitled to a full lane. I wonder if it's actually there in NY? I found this, sort of a drag in comparison...

Section 1234. Riding on roadways, shoulders, bicycle lanes and bicycle paths.

* (a) Upon all roadways, any bicycle shall be driven either on a usable bicycle lane or, if a usable bicycle lane has not been provided, near the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway or upon a usable right- hand shoulder in such a manner as to prevent undue interference with the flow of traffic except when preparing for a left turn or when reasonably necessary to avoid conditions that would make it unsafe to continue along near the right-hand curb or edge. Conditions to be taken into consideration include, but are not limited to, fixed or moving objects, vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, animals, surface hazards or traffic lanes too narrow for a bicycle and a vehicle to travel safely side-by-side within the lane.

from here

I ought to ask Joey Mac about this...
