What you’ll see and what you’ll hear ought to blow your mind. It’s stunning.
I suppose this could be a parody of clueless hipsters. I mean, how could anyone be so blind as to miss hypocrisy of this magnitude?

- Motorists can associate such behavior with traffic bicycling.
- It makes bicycling look far more dangerous that it actually is.
