Yesterday's snow put a damper on Earth Day festivities and sent would-be cyclists back inside. And while they were there, one reader discovered Josiah Hesse's screed from last summer on why cruiser bikes suck.

He didn't appreciate it.

Says Mick:

People who are "serious" bikers are the most selfish pieces of human garbage on earth. Every hardcore bicycler I know retreats into a life of only talking to bicyclers about bikes. And their families are left far behind as they run around in disgusting perverted clothing, clogging up the roads that real family men use shuttling our families to family activities together. All the while these selfish loser bicyclers run about on child's toys, being the absolute selfish pigs that they are. At least cruiser-bike people with their kids riding along are real people and not selfish, man-child, closeted scum.

Do you think Mick is too hard on serious bikers? Post your thoughts below.
