Cyclists have every right to ride on any street in New York City, and that's the end of it. If you get assaulted, on a bike or anywhere else, defend yourself and if necessary seek help from the authorities. People are such sissies.
A unicyclist is more akin to a pedestrian than a bicyclist, particularly with respect to the speeds available to them. A good unicyclist goes about as slow or fast as a fat pedestrian. Should we kick fat joggers off the sidewalk? What about fat people driving their Rascals around the sidewalks? That's a dumb, weirdo vehicle, but the roadway is no place for them. Or unicyclists.
Or, "Some lady who lives in Park Slope puts out an internet petition that is prejudiced against hip-hop fans, therefore Park Slope is necessarily racist."
That's kind of a hypocritical angle to take on this particular story, don't you think?
