Today's stoplight question

We asked the male McGill student aggressively riding the wrong way on the Prince Arthur West street bike path through the McGill ghetto...

"Are you riding the wrong way on this one-way bike path because you know it is one-way and you choose to disregard it and endanger all the people who want a safe route on the street to ride their bicycle as active urban transport, or are you just clueless and stupid?"

Although he stopped and listened to our question, he didn't answer it. So we conclude... both!

Funny. But seriously, why do some cyclists do that?

I think it's because they (selfishly) judge it to be the safest thing for them. 1) you're less likely to get doored, since the drivers are looking toward you 2) you're "protected" by being in a bike-only lane 3) you don't have to share a space with an impatient fast moving automobile.
