Some jerks ride their bikes, too…
Guys, let’s organize. I’m a bicyclist. I love our bike friendly city. HOWEVER. The president of a local software company ignored those big huge flashing lights and buzzers by the Downtown PDX Marriott while riding on the sidewalk (which is illegal in that portion of downtown).
A valet who has worked there for 8 yrs was coming out of the garage and there was a mishap. The bicyclist (who, again, was riding illegally) made a big deal out of something where he didn’t get injured and got the kid fired.
After 8 years.
Now Marriott is fighting the gentleman’s unemployment claim. A week before Christmas. When it wasn’t his fault. In the worst economic times in decades. Call Marriott at 503.226.6300 and make them justify this. Make them uncomfortable.
Don’t be rude. Just don’t let them railroad a kid for some asshole who gives the rest of us bicyclists a bad name.
