This one comes from the ever-acerbic BikeSnob NYC. Hilarious, especially the last bit. (If you don’t follow this blog, you should: http://bikesnobnyc.blogspot.com.au)
“Cyclists love to argue about waving to each other. Some of us are quite whiny about it. “The stuck-up roadie didn’t wave to me, wah, wah, wah.” Whatever. Get over it. For some reason, Americans can’t ride bicycles without receiving acknowledgment and encouragement at least every five minutes. We need constant validation that we bought the right thing and look the right way and that we’re saving the Earth.
Hey, if you’re not actually receiving the finger from somebody then that should be good enough for you.”
