Lithuanian Mayor + tank vs parked cars in cycle lane

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Hey...Tanks for that link.

I doubt its authenticity, but you never know. He'd be the first politician with real cajones. Maybe it could really happen.

I live 3 blocks from where Shawn Nelson (aka, Tankboy) stole the M60 tank and tore up the neighborhood back in 1995. I ride by the Armory everyday. The wonders of meth.

Your bro, and every news agency in the world..

"The stunt was organised to warn car owners against parking in cycle lanes, something strictly forbidden within the streets of capital. A keen cyclist, Zuokas has long urged the people to take up cycling and campaigned to introduce cycle lanes during a previous term in office."
