Bicycle Stories Publishes Comment That Was Removed by TBO.com
Several months ago I posted this photo and sentiment on Facebook and I'm pulling it out for posting on Bicycle Stories in light of a story about a bicyclist who was given a citation by police for being in the road in Tampa.
This sentiment was also posted as a comment on this week's TBO.com story about bicyclist Brad Mercel who was cited by Tampa Police for impeding cars, but TBO removed the comment.
So, here is the comment that was removed by TBO.com:
"Do you like paved roads? Thank bicyclists. We're the ones who got this country to pave roads in the 1800s: 'The League of American Wheelmen founded Good Roads Magazine in 1892 to promote the need for public roads.' Now, I'd like a liitle piece of that road so I can drive my bicycle."
