Stevil over at All Hail the Black Market buried this snap after a long post about Interbike, but his take on it is dead on:
I've long felt that as we (cyclists) increase in numbers, (socially) we would experience a myriad growing pains. After all, we are up against three generations worth of belief that streets exist exclusively for motorized traffic. Eking out a small slice for ourselves would be a challenge, of that I had no doubt. Going toe to toe with hysteria that would make Joseph McCarthy blush is another matter entirely.
The backstory is some 2-wheeled insurgents are trying to keep a bicycle boulevard in place, while hundreds of neighbors are up in arms trying to get rid of it. Honestly, I wish the whiny Dolores Park neighbors could put on a show like this one. Damn good theater.

We live in a post 9/11 world where all issues are black and white. The second those planes crashed into those towers, you either became a terrorist who supports bicycling, or a good American patriot who supports excessive gas consumption and wars in the middle east to support the profits of the military industrial complex.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go run over some bicyclists on Fell St. on my way into Arco to fill up my Hummer H2.
