Okay here's the problem. As you can see from the top photo the narrow pedestrian walk is shared with bikes. Thank you Mr. Bloomberg. If everybody played nice no problem, but this is New York.
The bikers yeah many of them...I was going to be nice, and say some, but fuck'em. These folks have road rage against the people walking the bridge.
I witnessed a bunch of these clowns all done up in racing gear numbers, and all flying across. One of the fuckers clipped a baby stroller, and didn't stop. I can tell you that got a reaction from the crowd.
Fortunately the kid wasn't hurt the stroller was clipped not knocked over, but the shit didn't stop neither did the other "racers"...btw there's no security on the bridge.
Okay, okay a lot of the bikers are nice ordinary folks that ring the handle bar chiming bell when they pass a crowd.
However the racing health nuts, and yeah that day there was a bunch of them are selfish fuckers. Anyway these bleeps need to be dumped over the side of the bridge by the enraged masses.
Otherwise it was a nice walk with all sorts of swell folks from all over the world. There was this nice older couple from Brazil that asked me to take their picture. They were real sweet folks.
'Though I'm sure they'd join with the rest of us in dumping the racer jerks into the river.
