Two men were arrested in New York for repainting a 14-block stretch of road on Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn with a bike lane. The lane had had recently been removed by the city due to compaints from businesses.

I can’t say whether or not I agree with the decision to remove the lane, or to take matters into your own hands when it comes to traffic laws, but one thing I now know for sure is that New Yorkers take their biking very seriously. Check out more bicycling finds below.
