Vandals Attack New Bicycle Signs

10212010521These absolutely wonderful, and given the limited nature of the cycling efforts around here, very surprising signs have been appearing around town.  Finally, some recognition about the rights of cyclists on the roads and what is expected of motor vehicles.

However, someone has decided that these signs shouldn’t be put up in the first place:

Oklahoma City workers began installing signs to promote cycling in October, but vandals have torn down some of the new signs. The destruction has the cycling community concerned.

“Whoever did this targeted only the bicycle signs and left the other signs alone. Clearly, this person has some anger towards cyclists,” said cyclist Mike Flenniken.
