Holy Rollers in This Week’s New Yorker
Ben McGrath’s big New Yorker story on bicycling is now online, Holy Rollers: The City’s Bicycle Zealots:
"It’s the next big fight," a biker who has been agitating to get cars permanently banned from the Central Park loop said recently. "I really think I’m doing God’s work." He equated the current political moment with the nascent state of civil rights in the late nineteen-thirties. "Bicyclists are the ni**ers of New York," he said.
