Cyclists should be loved. After all, they are reducing the burden on Mother Earth by eschewing more convenient forms of transport. Even though they can be a tad irritating: those spandex-covered air-humping butts sometimes look so self-righteous you just want to nudge them. Most people who commented on this video of Danish police hugging passing cyclists and then fitting them with helmets were cynical. They either accused the coppers of being "gheyy" because they only stopped male riders (my guess is that they wanted to avoid sexual harrassment charges) or concluded that it was all a ploy to make policeman look better.  Another  said: "The NYPD cop who pushed over the Critical Mass cyclist should be ordered to do this for about 1,000 hours."
