So moving on from the previous inspiring story of courage to this sorry tale. The BBC reports:
A car has ploughed through cyclists staging a demonstration in Port Alegre, hitting at least 20 people.
The incident happened on Friday, when riders in the town were taking part in their monthly protest against the number of cars on Brazil's roads.
Of those hurt, nine needed hospital treatment. All were later discharged.
The driver, 47-year-old Ricardo Neis, alleges that he and his 15-year-old son felt threatened when protesters began to hit and kick his car.
Makes you think twice about attending a Critical Mass. Glad no one was seriously hurt. Usual anti-cyclist comments on the YouTube video comments. Don't you just love your fellow man?
