Makes one think that there ought to be measures that prevent petrol powered vehicles from getting on bike paths. What a shame

What a tragedy - from a cycling perspective we can't read too much into it if it is a terrorist attack towards 'bystanders'.

At least they got the guy alive this time. They'll be able to get some understanding of the motivation, one hopes.

The treadmill originated in 19th century prisons as a punishment (and to mill grain).

Perhaps they could put this guy to work on a spin bike to provide power and lighting to the prison - for say, 25 years.
