Car worship is a terrible disease. Dean should evaluate his love for the automobile, an obvious offensive pollution machine. Bicycling is not a crime, and, to answer his question, yes, “The sidewalks just aren’t good enough.” Bicycling is a valid and much more environmentally responsible means of transportation. Instead of complaining about bike couriers, weekend bicyclists, or those of us who commute by bicycle, Dean should be thanking all bicyclists for the cleaner air he is breathing.

And as for the actual festivals, most people I know not only tolerate them but have a really good time.
