I read this today in the Letters to the Editor section of the Demozette. It made me chuckle so I thought I'd share:
Relocate the Cyclists
A quiet, meditative walk across and around the Big Dam Bridge would be a very pleasant experience if it wasn't for those infernal cyclists who seem to think that they have a greater claim to the pathways than pedestrians.
They are not only a nuisance, with their Spandex pants, body armor and racing helmets, but an acute embarrassment. Just who do they think they are? Pedaling around the banks of the Arkansas River at 15 mph in that ridiculous uniform does not qualify them for the Tour de France.
In the name of humanity, find these clowns another site and, please, as far away from those who enjoy the simple pleasure of walking. There they can indulge their foolish fantasies to their heart's content.

So take that you Spandex sporting, body armor boding, acutely embarrassing, Tour de France wannabes...get off the road!
He sure would have carried more credibility had he mentioned Kona. Tour de France?....PPFffff....sheesh, please!
And, hey, don't EVEN get him started on the dog poop issue!
