"Cars produce smog, bicycles produce smug."



Talking About Bikelash In Your City from STREETFILMS on Vimeo.

Even after years of witnessing the arrogance and smugness of cyclists in San Francisco, I'm surprised that the folks who put this video together think it makes their cause endearing.

No doubt it does to the True Believers---it's target audience---but it only confirms what the rest of us think: arrogance and smug self-righteousness: "And it makes all of us giggle and be happy, and we just go on doing good work.” Oh yes, because you are one of the Good People and so adorable!

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

Have fun losing.

I like how they all talk about how it isn't a problem and how bikelash is waning. If they only had the foggiest idea of ALL the people outside of their protective bubble that are affected by the decisions they are pushing. At no point do they step back and look at the population as a whole. Merely an evaluation that says "I like this, and my buddies like this, so everyone likes this!"

It seems some cyclists in Britain are now filming bad behavior of other cyclists instead of automobiles as they are finally noticing that cyclists are the ones routinely violating traffic rules and regulations.

We know exactly what we are doing to them and how they are affected. We are getting them pushed out of San Francisco and taking the city over for ourselves. Have fun in Walnut Creek.

Because heaven forbid an entitled bike rider has to go around a construction barrier, taxi unloading, truck or pedestrian. They just don't want to share the road.
