The above is yesterday’s front-page photo in the Seattle Times. I’ve complained about this before, but Seattle Times’ coverage of biking seems oddly designed to encourage people to avoid biking at all costs while giving the appearance that the Seattle Times actually supports biking. Consider the above image, what is your first reaction
(a) gee, biking is probably really unsafe if you have to do something like that
(b) gee, bikers sure look like weirdos, don’t want to hang around those guys
(c) gee, I kinda feel like going for a bike ride!
If you answered (c), you are lying, and also, you probably work for the Seattle Times.
