New Globe Editor Brian McGrory Hates Cyclists

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 20

Oh great, of all the people who could have taken over as editor for the globe this guy had to take the reigns.

As Mayor Tom Menino prepares to roll out an ambitious bicycle-sharing program on the streets of our great city this month, offering hundreds of bikes for short-term rental all across town, I might urge him to go in a slightly different direction.

He ought to ban all bicyclists from Boston instead.

Ban them as in, here’s the city line, Lance, there’s a bike rack. Lock it up, and flag yourself a nice air-conditioned cab. Maybe you won’t be sweating so much when you walk into work.

That’s right, the new editor of the globe is known bike hater, and all together irrational and misguided man, Brian McGory

We can only hope the globe doesn’t become another useless rag that spends a large part of its time “defending” cars, and touting cyclists as the scourge of the city.

(thanks Sean for the heads up)
