Portland and hate

Bike boxes and Portland - Let's hope it works.

There's been a sudden rash of criminal hatred towards cyclists from motor vehicles around these parts in the past two weeks or so. I had three incidents last night, with two of them coming from a single car - yep, they turned back and came around for more after no response from me the first time - no response other me than memorizing their license plate #. Add to that the physical assault I experienced on New Year's day, as well as the black car purposefully trying to run-down cyclists the other night and you've got a true war zone on the streets of Minneapolis - a one way war, that is - a war against those who do not conform to the ideology of drive-fuel-drive.

Bike on.
