“Hell On Wheels” reads the cover of today’s New York Daily News in their hard-hitting story about how a handful of road warrior cyclists are basically trying to ethnically cleanse Central Park’s pedestrian population, by riding 5 miles per hour over the posted speed limit. Of course, they didn’t mention the bad habits that runners and walkers are notorious for exhibiting as they saunter haphazardly into the bike lane, just like they do on the Brooklyn Bridge or the hundreds of other cyclists that ride casually through the park or the reduction in injuries despite an uptick in riding among other easy to attain facts. As Streetsblog notes, they didn’t stop there. There was two other slanted pieces lamenting the evils of bikes as well.
