Thought this was a good read...make sure to peruse the comments section, too. You can probably guess what people are saying though...

Wow.. that sucks, cop used an event like MS150, to make a point. I kinda like the age old arguement between the cyclist and vehilce drivers going on though. It will never end. People complain when we cycle on multiuse path, and they complain when we are on the road.

Wow, there is a special place in hell ...

Really this is a revenue issue for the county I think. Otherwise this would have been addressed with the organizers vs. ticketing cyclists.

Really in poor taste.

Wow, so far 60% of Post readers think "cyclists are completely reckless"

I'm guessing that's the 60% of readers that are not cyclists?
