- Just another little bicycling observation. In a city this congested and with pollution, I applaud cyclists willing to brave the road–but this is taking it a little bit too far. These two were spotted in a different neighborhood as the previous post and yet riding just as idiotically as the others. In case you can’t quite grasp what’s happening here, the woman is seated on the handlebars and leaning backward agains her mail companion who is both pedaling and steering. They are in a real street, with real cars. Yes, the traffic was very light, but still. seriously.
