From the NY Times:
On his weekly radio program on Friday morning, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said he opposed allowing commuters to bring bicycles onto subway cars, even if the Metropolitan Transportation Authority permits it.
“I know bicyclists will now ring the phones off the hook, but they are just too big, particularly at rush hour,” he said of the bikes.
“I just don’t think they should allow it,” he added.
It was an unexpected cycle screed from a mayor known as a vigorous champion of mass transportation and bicycle rights.
Why do you need to take the train if you have a bike anyway?
