Look up his youtube video where he calls cyclists riding on the road "swimming with sharks" and how if we get injured it's our own fault. Nothing new here. He's very anti-cycling, among other charming attributes.

Sadly it's not a fake. Newser is American, looks like they "translated" it for you.

He's just angry because they haven't made a bicycle that can sustain him.
