Anti-bike sentiment is not allowed in this cab

Make sure you check out the Willamette Week’s “Night Cabbie” column this week.

Apparently the author is a former bike messenger and this week’s column tells of how she deals with an anti-bike passenger. As the cab slows down to give a downtown cyclist some room, the passenger squawks, “Goddamn bicyclists shouldn’t be on the road,” probably expecting to find support from the cabbie. However, what he gets is the exact opposite.

Check out the rest of the article on WWeek.com.
