Apparently NYPD cut through locks and confiscated bicycles yesterday along the Houston Street route of President Obama’s motorcade to his speech at Cooper Union. And, apparently, there was no forewarning, notice or information about where all the bikes may have gone. The Gothamist is working to keep folks posted, but this is sorta ridiculous. All because you can make a pipe bomb in a bicycle frame.
The best comment I’ve read on these sites says this is part of his economic stimulus plan…now they all have to go buy new bikes.
