I HAVE to know...was this aired on tv?

I'm all for cycling advocacy, but this is kind of hilarious! Then again, everyone knows us young people will respond to anything if its rapped...

I'm embarrassed as a person, as a black person, and as a fan of hip hop.

how could you possibly have an album after making that.

So, are only Euro-Americans allowed to use the bike racks, or are they the only ones in need of training?

For a second I thought it was going to be a video of a self-important young person undressing in a Wal-Mart....

Actually that was great. I always assumed the bus driver put the bike in the rack for some reason. This really clears things up.

I once had to help a woman put her bike on the rack of a Houston Metro bus. It was easier to just go help her then watch her struggle with it. The bus driver did nothing. Took me 20 seconds to lift her bike and secure it and we were on our way. Luckily we both got of at the same stop so I helped her again.

This is a little off-topic but it reminds me of an ad campaign they did for the T, in Fort Worth, a few years back.

They had TV & print ads saying "Bus-A-Move." I thought it was a rather clever play on words, but I think they got too many complaints about it being too racial or some such. Anyway, they yanked the ads after a few months.

For a second I thought this was a post from a self-important person who bases that self-importance on the need to respond to others' posts with ad hominen attacks. Oh wait. I was right. Geez.

I have this sudden unexplainable urge to ride a bus?

What city was that in?

I wonder if a cyclist could hang her sweaty clothes on the rack for the duration of the bus ride? The other passengers would probably be pleased to have those sweaty unmentionables outside the bus too!

ReachHigher, you obviously made quite a splash with your other thread. You've developed your own fanbase that can't stop posting about it.

None of the cyclist I have come across on the bus, smell as bad as the homeless bus riders or the construction workers still in their work clothes.

Besides, are you not one of the folks who hate cycle specific clothes and commutes to work in your work clothes. I bet your co-workers really love your smell.

Until you have gone into a small base PX on a remote-site Army base in Germany on a Friday -- staffed by German locals who, in old-school fashion, bathe on Saturdays only -- you have no room to speak of SMELL!!! The base commander could neve figure out why PX business was off on Fridays.
