    Manhattan "Circle Line" is anti-bike? Or just ignorant?

    Took the Circle Line this past week with my better half. The "tour guide", Malachy, was quite entertaining, but very wrong about something. He was describing the Hudson Greenway to the no0bs (tourists), saying how it's there so that bikes "don't clog-up traffic in Midtown". Wow... how dumb was that? I gave him a tip as we got off the boat (apparently these guys work for tips like waiters!) and let him know that cars, not bikes cause the traffic in Midtown. I think it went in one ear and out the other. <sigh>

    Tell him, "in traffic, the ones that are clogging the roads are the ones that aren't moving."
