When Bike Lanes Are Blocked

Via jalopnik, "After getting a $50 ticket for not riding his bike in the painted 'bike lane,' this militant bicyclist went out of his way to crash into every obstacle placed in the way of New York City's bicyclists." This is pretty funny, but we don't necessarily recommend crashing into double parkers to make a point. But the clip does underscore some of the tribulations urban bicyclists sometimes encounter.

Not everything is rough and tumble in The Big Apple. For some inspirational videos about bicycling in New York City, try this clip of a new, trimmer-looking bike commuter and this lady who's pushing 80-year-old. And for more, read our interview with two Sierra Clubbers in Texas who ditched the car for a whole month. If you want to hop on a bike, get tips and help from our most awesome Bike Resource page.
