Hats off to Mr. Dutreil! He's a great advertisement for commuting by bike - stylish and with a smile on his face. Hopefully, he'll convert some of his rich, well-connected friends, they'll ditch their Escalades for Gazelles, realize how crummy most of NYC's cycling infrastructure really is, and start lobbying the city government for improvements!
Bad member of the french government !Good bike rider ;-)Blaise (almost chic in Paris this morning, but always on a bike)
I think this is great, WITH the caveat that the wealthy/influential people who do this should, in fact, really give up their Escalades. Most wealthy people in New York who are into cycling ride bikes for fun on the weekends, but of course they keep a Land Rover for every day getting around. I just rode through SoHo and the west village dodging luxury SUV's - quite possibly the least practical vehicle ever for NYC life.
He's not wearing a helmet! That's good!Gică Contra
