Build a bridge, bike-baiters

As a working city bicycle courier, I am occasionally criticised for
such misdemeanours as flowing through traffic and taking a full lane
in unsafe sections. Those who choose to preach from their big-wheeled,
chrome-plated, plastic chariots should note one thing: if you don't
wind down the window of your air-conditioned, carbon-farting bubble,
the chances are I won't be able to hear you. If I do happen to hear
you, the chances are greater that I have heard it all before. Go and
see Morris Iemma's men on Macquarie Street - they know people who will
build you a bridge to get over it.

And just so that he doesn't get too hasty, Iemma will also whack a toll on
that bridge!!
