Thanks for the fucking top notch real reporting on this issue. Grade A, as always. I've dealt with this guy and he always rubbed me the wrong way--not just as a shady fence--but as extremely unpleasant to deal with and just seeing the dynamic in the shop with the way staff FEARED him cemented my view.
That's a really funny parody spin on the story, Sarah--calling PDOT a "carfree activist organization!"
But seriously, are we going to let scofflaw out-of-towners with their own agenda come to our town and build walls like ODOT has?
This kind of lawless behavior cannot be tolerated.
As a concerned citizen, I do not appreciate this kind of interfering with due process!
I've done the MLK ride on a number of occasions and it's never proven dangerous to me. The ride is not aggressive, does not clog lanes, is not organized by newbies or new transplants, and is not a *protest*.
It's like any other bike ride in that it makes it safe in numbers.
Multiple riders on the MLK ride (which is admittedly, quite small) have been involved in cycling and cycling politics for 15-20 years and have found that lobbying for new stripes is NOT the most efficient way to get things done.
But I am a big fan of telling people what battles they should fight. It's a lot easier than letting them choose. And I know better anyway.
