"Don't Show Fear! Cars are Like Dogs! They Can Smell Fear!"
...just one of many gems from this article about Moscow Cycling:
How to Change the World with Bikes: A Russian Activist's Lesson : The New Yorker
A few other faves:
- “Sometimes you have to ride through pedestrians!”
- “We decided, as long as government can’t change, we should do it ourselves. With bicycles.”
- "Among the many benefits of riding a bike in Moscow is that it makes it harder for the police to catch you, added Polsky,"
- From a trip to NY “I got in trouble when I crossed the Manhattan Bridge with the cars".
^ Like the lady who felt she was helping you home, the van driver's warning is not helpful. Pulling in and blocking traffic protecting the cyclist would help. Yelling when the cyclist is there on a bridge with no exit options is worse the useless.
