John Rakowski: Bike Tourist Extraordinaire

July 14, 2013


Not to quibble with John Rakowski or his transcontinental bicycling adventures (he’s at least less obnoxious than the insufferable U.S. Royal), but I’ve encountered most of his listed hazards — cobblestones, terrible roads, surly postal workers, wrong-way riders, contemptuous drivers — on and off my bike right here in the greater Washington, DC metropolitan area. And Rakowski never dealt with fat tourists and obnoxious hipsters flopping around on clunky Capital Bikeshare rigs, texting and taking cell phone pics AS THEY’RE RIDING, now did he? His precious Browning would have been a crumpled lump of scrap after battling them for one day.

    You’re riding a bike around D.C.? Hope you got bulletproof vest there, pal.
