4 kinds of biking jerks

It's hard to believe, but a guy with the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, writing in the City Paper (an arm of the two-wheel community) has come clean about the four kinds of biking jerks.

The four are precisely what I have been writing/complaining about for years, which has resulted in pedalphiles attacking me. But now, the truth is out.

Should I bother explaining I am not "anti-bike," but anti-bad bike behavior? Why bother. They just don't seem to get it when I say it. Maybe they will take it from one of their own.

We can hope, anway.
