Membership Has Its Privileges

July 29, 2011

I’ll have more on this later, but we have another addition to the ever-growing Some of My Best Friends are Bike Lanes (SMBFBL) list and it’s a doozy.  In fact, if I had to pick a winner in the category of Best Bike-Lane-Hating Statement by an Actor in a Supporting Role, this one might be the odds-on favorite.  (What to call the award? The Marties? The NBBLies?)

Ladies and gentlemen, via the Huffington Post, here’s Alan Singer:

By the way, I am a member of Transportation Alternatives and an avid biker, but this bike lane still makes no sense to me.

This may be the first time someone has brandished his TA membership card as indisputable proof that his argument, however nonsensical, is valid.  Enjoy your weekend.  It may be hot — too hot for Alan Singer — but I’m sure this bike lane and many others will be packed with riders.

UPDATE 7/31/11: A reader informs me that someone already used his TA membership as a shield against criticism that he is against bike lanes before Alan Singer’s most recent screed.  That man?  Alan Singer, five months ago.
