Share your most hilarious anti-transit videos from politicians, city councils, "concerned citizen" NIMBYs etc. Bonus points if local to your area.

I'll start this thread off with some classics.

What are your thoughts on this activity?
How does it compare to bicycling?

Just picked up a pair recently since biking was getting boring and was hurting my taint and wrists. I probably look like a dork with the pads, but it's nice have an entire new skillset to learn.

Milwaukee Road Electrification Thread

No.1233925 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Back by popular demand, ITT we discuss the greatest electrified railroad operation in world history. The proven corporate conspiracy to dismantle and abandon this operation, largely perpetrated from within the company itself by its own top-level officials, is one of the greatest crimes against humanity ever conceived and makes the Great American Streetcar Scandal look like amateurish in comparison.

Gone before its time, but not forgotten, the Milwaukee Road's Pacific Coast Extension lives on in the minds of all who encounter it. This thread is dedicated to the men and women who built and maintained this system, and the photographers who filmed and preserved this unique operation for posterity.

>MTB brought so many more challenges, and i exerted a lot more force / was more destroyed after a ride

No wonder you queers all froth over road bikes, it's like riding a MTB with an engine. It's boring..
