Interesting observation from Gothamist regarding NYTimes’ coverage of cycling over the past 100 years. Apparently New Yorkers are still grumbling about the same cycling issues they were in the 1890’s: Speeding Cyclists (called “Scorchers” back then), brakeless bikes, and bicycle access to the Brooklyn Bridge. Check out the article here with links to both past and present articles. Are we always doomed to repeat history?
