    BikeSnobNYC on NPR Radio's "On Point"

    A link if you want to listen... (warning, like 40 mins)
    http://www.onpointradio.org/2010/05/cyclist-culture

    Three of the more entertaining written comments:

    ...Commuters? I see the problem. The more I bicycle the fatter I get; no brainer. It makes you hungry (thirsty?) for hours.

    My mother has a great saying about helmets.

    Tom,
    I started carrying a gun while cycling after someone threw an axe at me from a passing logging truck.

    Iím a lifelong cyclist, have commuted, ridden across North America, and still ride regularly for fun and fitness.

    Unfortunately, too many non cyclists think itís funny to use us for target practice, whether itís a soft drink container, kids with rocks, or some idiot with an axe.

    Tim.

    The video: I knew there was a reason I joined the MTBR site and not another bike forum.

    I assume it's an over-the-top tongue in cheek mockery or stereotypical 'Roadie' slam. Most aren't like this. The Clydesdale section discussed an incident showing that the atitude crops up with MTB, too. As the show says, almost any hobby tends to breed the obsessed.

    Show: well worth the listen. Nice to know that others have the same feelings out there on the streets riding.
