"Boulder cyclists ride against coal" That is the headline for a story in the Daily Camera today about how what appears to be 100's of coal fighting citizens got together in downtown Boulder as part of a 350.org campaign to protest against the Valmont coal plant and then road down to the Valmon coal plant. As a person I too support limiting our usage of coal for energy and also as a car driver and as a computer geek and as a dad and etc. Point is why did the Daily Camera have to use the word Cyclist cyclist in their title? These were people who happen to be on bikes. Why does this matter? Later in the article you see
"No injuries or arrests occurred during the bike ride, but Boulder police Sgt. David Kicera said the bikers "violated a lot of traffic laws and obstructed traffic for quite a while."
To make a generalization now, the reader will think... "Those damn crazy hippie cyclist".
