Story behind Bedford Avenue controversy


Apparently, the reason why bike lanes were removed by the city on Bedford Avenue NY was that the Hasidim in Williamsburg, Brooklyn began to complain in September about the overly sexy female bikers who use the Bedford Avenue bike lane.

The Bedford Avenue bike lane is a major artery through Brooklyn and to the Williamsburg Bridge, with part of it traversing a neighborhood that is densely Hasid-populated. The men of the Hasidic community has pressured the city to remove the offending corridor, to protect them from the possibility of seeing women ride by in tank tops and shorts and skirts and other shocking states of undress.

Looks like Candy Cranks want to organize a naked ride through that neighborhood.  I say … lets do this!!!
