It's Hard Out There For A Pimp

This is what my RSS of Google News looked like this afternoon. Eight out of nine headlines refer to cyclists being killed, beaten, robbed, or assaulted in some fashion, sometimes more than once in the same day. Thank you Sam Whittingham for not only breaking the cycling land speed record (82.3mph) but for saving us from a perfect storm of cycling related tragedies.

You should start a bicycle based martial art. Velo-Foo, bike-kwon-do, or just start using cavalry sabres or travel in squadrons.

Shaun,
You can RSS anything you search for in Google News. I searched for "cycling OR bike" and clicked the RSS link on the left column and BAM!
