America Now Leads The World In Proven Reserves of Crude Stupidity

Here in this part of the northern hemisphere we're busy squandering the remaining weeks of summer and building up our cyclocross bikes with dick breaks for the coming season, but down in the land frumunda they've already had their cyclocross national championships, and Geoff the Reader (which sounds like a "Game of Thrones" character) was kind enough to send me this video of the dramatic conclusion of the Elite Men's race:



Here's the description from the video:

There was a controversial end to the Elite Men's race. Paul Van Der Ploeg (big bloke in blue) and Chris Jongewaard (small bloke with white helmet) came together and they ended up off their bikes. I gave the video to the commissaires, they reviewed it, prior to deciding the outcome of the race. Paul kept the win. They are leaning on each other from about 3 seconds into this video.

"Came together" and "ended up off their bikes" indeed.

Even more salacious was the subsequent media coverage:
"Tussle-tainted?"


("I eees muscle-tainted.  Eees similar?")

Well, no, Mario.  This is what she meant:

It involved a substantial amount of contact between the two and the situation became heated.

I bet it did.  Sounds like they were doing the ol' two-taint tussle.

Moving on, there's been a lot of news out of Boston concerning cyclists on the highway, and this mornint a tweeter on the Twitter tweeted this tweet from some Boston sportswriter at me:
Wow.  Nobody in media is dumber about bikes than aging sportswriters.  Remember Tony Kornheiser back in 2010?



What is it with these people?  They write about sports!  Why are they so upset by people who engage in physical activity?  You don't see food critics getting angry at people for eating.  Anthony Bourdain tries the street food, he doesn't yell at all the other people eating it for blocking the sidewalk, or say stuff like, "Food just doesn't belong on city streets.  It's a nice abstract concept, but impractical."

Anyway, upon reading that tweet I fired off one of my own:
I should at this point remind you that I hate sports, partly because they're boring, but mostly because the stupid attitudes surrounding them hurt my brain.  Therefore, I didn't know who Tony Kornheiser was before that whole kerfuffle (even though he went to my high school, which is not surprising given his dimwitted worldview), and I didn't know who Bob Ryan was either--until after I sent that tweet, at which point I looked him up on a popular user-edited online encyclopedia and read this:

On January 28, 2008 his 37-year-old son Keith, was found dead in his home in Islamabad, Pakistan. Initial reports indicated that his death was an apparent suicide, however reports in the Pakistani newspapers Dawn and The News International indicated that Ryan's death may be investigated as a murder. A State Department spokesperson would only say the death was under investigation.[5] Bob Ryan released the following statement: "Everyone is devastated. I am well aware of these reports and we are very concerned about that. (But) we have no reason at this time to doubt the official version".[6]

That is completely horrible, and it made me feel really bad about the "-stan" thing, which was obviously a coincidence.  Ironically though I was initially going to type "Retardistan," but people always get upset when you use the "R" word that way, so I changed it.  Clearly I should have skipped trying to be clever altogether and just Tweeted "You're a fucking idiot."

You can never go wrong with that.

Indeed, very little good comes of the Twitter, though I was pleased to learn about this:
Here's the story:


No, by "jump red lights" they don't mean you can do the "two-taint tussle" with traffic signals.  What they mean is you're allowed to run the red light under certain specific circumstances:

The latest gift, being introduced over the summer, is a radical step that recognises a regrettable truth: that cyclists in cities often fail to stop at red lights. Rather than step up repression of this misdemeanour, the Paris city authorities have decided to make it legal.

Over July and August, signs are being put up at 1,800 junctions across the capital. They show an upside down triangle, with a picture of a bicycle and an arrow.


What this indicates is that when the signal is red, cyclists can nonetheless - and with all due care and attention - jump the lights. They can, to use the lingo, "griller le feu".

Mmmm, griller le feu is my favorite Parisian street food.

Anyway, here's when you're allowed to barbecue the light:

"It required a rewriting of the Code de la Route [the laws governing road use], but what in effect we have done is turn the red light for cyclists into a give way sign," says Christophe Najdoski, deputy Paris mayor in charge of transport.

It is important to note that the change only affects right turns or going straight on at a T-junction - in other words where the cyclist can hug the pavement.

This makes total sense, which is why it will never happen in New York.  See, here in America's Most Bike-Friendly City, these are the exact spots where the NYPD set up their cyclist red light sting operations.

Lastly, speaking New York City, a reader alerted me to the latest Bill Cunningham video, which I can't embed, so just click here instead.  Not only does he reveal that he's had 32 (!) bikes stolen, but he also spots a Citi Bike unicycle:


Presumably you only get 15 minutes instead of the usual 30.

Anyway, this video was highly thought-provoking, in that it made me think about how much I'd like to see a video of Bill Cunningham kicking Bob Ryan in the nuts.

In Idaho, bicyclists are allowed to view stop signs as yields and red lights as stop signs. And have for years. Seems to work fine.

There is a big difference between city streets and highways. The powers that be in bicycle heaven (Netherlands) have figured that out; the faster the traffic; the further the separation between cars and bikes. And if there is a bike lane or path, cyclists must use them. Motorists more polite in the cities and bicyclists polite on the highways AND everyone mostly law abiding; what a novel idea. Not in belly-aching America where our apparent hunger for our rights overrides our obvious need for responsibility.

Bob was probably just upset by the traffic on the Cape from the Pan Mass Challenge this weekend. And since he can't call it out specifically considering the money it raises for cancer ad the Jimmy Fund, he'll just call out all cyclists.

Good to see France is willing to make it easier on bikes. I find in NJ that cars basically expect you to run the stop sign. There is a 4-way I go through daily to ad from work and I'll clip out as i approach only to see a car that has been stopped there waving me to go, like, "Come on idiot, it's my tur to go, but the you'll just hit my car, so just go through."

The new rule in Paris for bikes is actually mostly in place in the US: it's almost always legal to turn right on red in the US, for cars and bikes (it's not in France).

@PotbellyJoe I see the same thing in Florida: people don't expect me to stop at 4-way stops, and some actually look upset that I do… damn cyclists slowing down traffic!

Also on the topic of 4-way stops for cyclists, I hear many people push for the Idaho stop, but I think the problem is actually the concept of 4-way stops. This is extremely uncommon in France. Usually at a low-traffic intersection, no one has a stop, you just have to slow down and yield to the person that comes from your right, and it seems to work just as well (or as bad, your choice).

i was going left at the EMtn/Amwell light last week and a motorcycle came up behind to go straight. he called me out and thanked me for actually signaling as i moved out to go in to the left turn lane. i replied that it was purely my desire to survive that made me signal, stop and do other stuff to avoid being run over.

Pathetic Old Cyclist said...

Snobby,

I am bit surprised at you for even thinking about pulling punches regarding the Moronistan comment and Bob Ryan. Calling a man out for editorializing a high level douchebag comment should be expected. By making his asinine comment, did Bob display any sensitivity to those on bikecycles who might have been run down by senselessly over opinionated newspapermen in automobiles? The same morons who don't have the guts or the lungs to ride in traffic alongside lazy fucking halfwits like Bob?

Bob's dead son has no bearing on his moronic opinion and he deserves every snarky comment directed at him. He put his head in the lion's mouth, he deserves to have it bitten off.

You, our leader, conscience and soul of this daily roundup, are softening under the weight of the voluminous responsibility of raising nearly 20 children.

Spokey said...


maybe that idiot should start paying for his roads if he wants them exclusively for autos. given his gas tax pays for less than 1/3 of the roads, he should get less than a 1/3 of width.

how 'bout we take 2/3 of the 'general funds' that go in to his fucking roads (he can have his 1/3 share) and use that 2/3 for peds & bicycles.

i couldn't finish that video. have to go back to something saner.

https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=tony+kornheiser+suspended&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-004

From WEEKEYPEEDEEDEE:

In March 2010, Kornheiser commented: "The last time I looked, the roads were made for automobiles...We're going to be dominated as if this was Beijing by hundreds of thousands of bicyclists...They all wear … my God … with the little water bottle in the back and the stupid hats and their shiny shorts. They are the same disgusting poseurs that in the middle of a snowstorm come out with cross-country skiing on your block. Run 'em down...Let them use the right, I’m okay with that. I don’t take my car and ride on the sidewalk because I understand that’s not for my car… Why do these people think that these roads were built for bicycles? ... They dare you to run them down.” Cyclist Lance Armstrong replied. "Disgusting, ignorant, foolish. What a complete f-ing idiot."[35] Kornheiser later apologized to Armstrong on-air and offered to go on a bike ride with him.[36]

Truly one of Lance's finer moments in the PR world.

The latest instance of the law belatedly being made appropriate, being introduced over the summer, is the long-overdue and sensible step that recognizes a regrettable truth: Red lights are a fucking stupid overcomplication resulting solely from the advent of automobiles and the incompetence of their drivers, and therefore they do not apply to bicycles.

On Dealing With Dummies

1. As dumb as Mr. Ryan's comment was, there is no excuse to intentionally open a wound like losing a son or daughter. We are not meant to bury our children. It was right to make it clear that the Moronistan comment was not meant to open that wound.

2. The problem with calling someone to give him a piece of your mind is that no one has an unlimited supply of pieces to spare. Unless Esteemed Commenter Daddo One has posted Mr. Ryan's work number, I wouldn't consider calling. If that is Mr. Ryan's work number, I still wouldn't bother calling. My dog may have a different opinion and his book club has discussed the relative merits of late night voicemail inquiries regarding running refrigerators and Prince Albert in a can.

3. Email to a publicly available work address is fair game with an important caveat: If it isn't something you would say to someone in person or want to see attributed to you in a newspaper, don't send it.

4. There are no winners' trophies in public discourse. Everyone gets a ribbon for participating. The best you can do is enjoy pinning that ribbon on the tail of a donkey. But even that requires approaching an ass.

5. There is an exception to each of these rules for Ann Coulter.

Did some cycling up in America's tuque last week while visiting friends in Ontario. Nice up there, much less traffic (than greater NYC) and some fairly bike friendly roads through nice rolling farm land. Also the Great lakes. The drivers on the whole also seemed a lot more respectful to cyclists. Good job Canada.

I have a feeling Mr. Cunningham has never used a bike lock in his life so 32 bikes isn't so bad.
I've seen him out and about in Manhattan and I think he favors a bike that doesn't upset the budget much.
That, or the NYT just buys him a new one.

millican said...

Wait. So a bunch of cyclists in San Francisco wanted to created a traffic delay and it took how many? One old lady and her walker could have done the same. Unfortunately, it doesn't prove that allowing stop signs and lights to be ignored prevents traffic delays. Funeral processions don't stop, and they still create delays. It's not because they're stopping or not. It's because there are so many in one spot. They've definitely proven their whininess and selfishness. That's it.

Bill Cunningham wears the same blue jackets that Paris Street/Sidewalk cleaners wear. In Paris there's an army of them to clean up not very much. In the US there's an army of people who throw stuff on the sidewalks and very few people to clean up after them. About once a month the city sends a street sweeper vehicle down the street.

that intersection is near the old homestead so i go through that probably 5+ per week and yes often get waved through. i'll go when it's not my turn but only after i've come to a full stop (i am usually on new centre x'ing beekman). also interesting is that not only has 4-way stop sign but the red blinking lights too.

awhile back i started looking at how many people come to a full stop. i'd say at best maybe 5% of the autos actually come to a full stop except when they absolutely must to not have their sentient vehicle plow in to another auto (on the way to plowing in to starbucks of course).

with that intersections i'll see cars often go through that at probably 10-15 mph. but if you're starting from the muni bld, i don't know. i find that beekman/amwell intersection much worse. nobody waving me through there, but i have had 3 turn in front me in the past two weeks. skid practice on one of them.

Since he broadcasted from NYC, the CRCA invited him to show up at a club race. He declined...

Last time I saw Bill Cunningham he was riding on a crowded sidewalk at lunchtime outside the Times building on 41st St. Seeing as for several decades he lived in the studios above Carnagie Hall (no bikes inside, please) and locked up outside the NYT in Times Square in the 'Taxi Driver' days, it's a wonder he didn't have more stolen...
