    I don’t know if I’m an average person, but it seems to single out only the advantages to bicycles and the disadvantages to cars (I could make a video of riding a bicycle in the snow, sleet, cold, heat and rain, and then show driving a car at 65 mph up to Duluth on a Wednesday evening siting in the air conditioning and listening to music), All the while bringing out some fringe anti-bicycle nuts as being “typical car drivers”, and perpetuating the “us vs them” mentality. “Can’t we all get along” was a 10 second sound bite in contrast to the entire rest of the video.
