It's Monday Morning, 52 Degrees, and Raining - Let's Bike to Work

Hi Yupette,

So commuting to work, school, shop, recreation, etc., via bicycles is supposed to be the answer to traffic congestion imposed by 'Smart Growth' on Northern Virginia? What do we do between between October and May?

The bicycle fanatics would say - dress appropriately for the weather. Gore Tex rain suits are available on sale right now for only $325. You'll need several.

The bicycle anytime, anywhere, for anything fanaticism is coming from the Coalition for Smarter Growth, Arlington County Board, Arlington County Transportation Division, and Arlington County Minister of Propaganda, Diana Sun, and her bloated PR staff.

PR is correct. The transportation "planners" need a PR gimmick to deflect attention for the upcoming traffic disaster they are creating with huge new parking lots, HOT lanes, and gentrifying the middle class to the outer burbs.

It's a component of the entire Yuptard experience, aka Yuppieism.

Back in the day when bicyclists rode because they were truly committed (not as a way of making a political aren't I superior statement between jetting off to destination weddings and huddling in their hermetically sealed year 'round air conditioned condos), they rode in all kinds of weather -- rain, wind and snow -- with ample supplies of black trash bags at the ready for protection from the elements.

It's also about funding the County Board's pet people and pet projects. Like former County Transportation employee and Democratic insider Charlie Denny's bike share franchise.

Here's a shocker - from my girlfriend who's a nurse-practitioner in the ER of a large local hospital - Why isn't there more concern about pedestrian, bicycle, and motorcycle safety? Answer - Where do you think donor organs come from?

Starts at the top, Sandi, with President Yupbama, 49 years old, graduated from college in 1983.

Yeah, Obama is a classic Yuppiecrat.

I wonder how many of Arlington's 'transportation planning' staff are silent partners in Charlie Denney's bike share franchise?

No, let's bike to work wearing black bicycle clothing from head to toe that we purchased at Zimmerman's and Fisette's favorite bike boutique.

"A portion of the purchase price of this dark-colored bicycle clothing will be used to fund Inova Hospital's Organ Transplant Progrem".

I'm calling my brother-in-law whose law firm sues for stuff like manufacturing and retailing black bike clothing to people who ride bicycles. See what he says.
