    Culture? Art? Making a difference? Hey, go **** yourself. We're too busy drinking, doing drugs, trying to **** random people and you want us to make money on top of all that? Really?

    Well, ****. I don't give a ****.

    Very sad news.

    Riding a bike in this city should not be a life-ending occurrence.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    someone posted on a blog to assume that especially trucks and buses have no clue
    people ride bikes. i think that this is a very good rule of thumb,
    also they are probably really stressed and not paying attention anyways.
    i got hit by a van in a similar thing to this cat a few weeks back but
    it wasnt serious.
    i feel bad for this brother, sorry to hear this.

    bottom line- the city needs to do more to ensure the safety of city cyclists.

    My cousin was telling me about getting bumped and almost run into a parked car by a dollar van on Flatbush Ave. Now he's wary of riding to Prospect Park. And this is a guy that got hit by a jeepney in Manila while riding to work and still made it to work on time. I gave him some ideas on different routes, but basically, the message is, be careful, measure the risks on your route carefully and ride appropriately.

    Terrible news.
    I was pushed out of my bike lane and eventually pushed over by a driver who didn't see me while they were merging in to traffic. Luckily the light behind me was red so no cars were coming. I was really lucky and the fall was minor. I gave her a piece of my mind and squeezed $450 out of her though. I wish these other folks could have been as lucky.

    That sucks. When I saw drag racing, I thought it'd be down by Starret City.

    I wonder if the police really said "hit-and-run thug" and "speedster buddy"

    be careful out there. it isn't getting any better.
    ...And neither is the writing in the Post, apparently.
