Winter Cyclist Beaten Up for Slowing Traffic in Montreal

by John Symon (Pedalmag excerpt)
December 18, 2012 (Montreal, QC) – Florent Daudens, a Montreal resident, was cycling December 14 on Saint-Hubert Street near downtown Montreal when he was physically attacked reports Alain Gravel of Radio Canada on his blog (in French – link below). The incident occurred where the street narrowed and Daudens was forced to ride into the street, forcing motorists to slow down for perhaps 15 seconds. An agitated passenger in a car began calling insults to the cyclist along the lines of, “Hey, jerk, stop slowing down the traffic. Move aside! Streets are made for cars, not bikes, especially in winter!” read on here:

John Lennon (1940 - 1980)

"I was the first to own a bicycle, then Liela and lastly, John. We did a lot of cycling, mainly in and around the Woolton and Allerton area. We would cycle to the Abbey Cinema and the Gaumont and up 
as far as Speke Airport. But we were never allowed to venture on our bikes into Liverpool city proper."

"We loved our cycles."

Quote by Stan Parks,
Elder cousin of John Lennon.
