    Most notorious cycling-related news story of the year?

    Most notorious cycling-related news story of the year? No great need to slip it in well into November. This might have ruled since January.

    LOL. The fourth bullet point in the headline:

    The cyclist not only threw feces at the woman but also yelled at her

    Throwing poop is the lesser evil? Hasn't this been a Lownje topic before? Any former monkey owners want to chime in?

    No no no.

    Cyclists are supposed to ride with their monkeys aboard, who will provide the necessary feces should the need arise for tossing.

    Riding with a monkey is how the phrase "monkey on your back" came into being.

    Experienced cyclists also know that if their monkey refuses to cooperate in any way (perhaps expressing undue sympathy towards an offending motorist), they can spank those monkeys.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    We should take up a collection to air some PSA's on TV, letting motorists know that it's o.k. if they are driving and see a cyclist spanking his monkey.
