Brooklyn Hipsters Re-Paint Bike Lane

December 13th, 2009 by hughillustration

After the city removed a section of the bike lane network in Brooklyn, a few renegades took direct action to correct the error:

The totally unreliable New York Post claims the lanes were removed in part because of complaints from the Hasidic community:

Cyclists have decried the removal of the bike lanes, but many Hasidic residents had complained that all the bikers whizzing by posed both safety and spiritual risks to the community.
Many of the hipster cyclists wear too little clothing for the Hasids, who are not supposed to stare at members of the opposite sex and wanted the enticement removed.
