A Bit About Bombs, Bikes And Bikers All In Black ...
Originating outrageous, scurrilous, unsubstantiated, scandalous, cycle related rumours prior to pedalling them around the Internet?
Well, bugger us standing up sideways
We really have to wonder - who the heck in the world would ever want to work in such a strange sort of way as that?

Letters Discounted in New York Blast
Police released a private security video showing a figure riding along a traffic island in the glow of Times Square's neon signs at about 3:38 a.m and getting off the bike just outside the recruitment center. About two minutes later, the cyclist rides away. Then the explosion occurs.
The images were too murky for police to get a clear description of the cyclist. But investigators were studying other security videos, including one showing a man exiting a subway station about 10 blocks away, carrying a bicycle, police said. The FBI was analyzing forensic evidence collected at the scene, Kelly said.
The commissioner cited other possible clues: a new bike discovered at about 7 a.m. in a trash bin a few blocks from the blast, and the sighting of a man on a bike near the scene moments before the explosion.
The man caught a witness' attention because he was riding slowly, wearing a backpack and a hooded jacket, Kelly said. The witness, who was buying a newspaper at the time, said the hood "pretty much covered" the rider's face.
The blast bears a striking resemblance to the two consulate explosions.
In October, two small explosive devices were tossed over a fence at the Mexican Consulate, shattering some windows; police said they believed someone on a bicycle threw the devices.
Read the explosive rest of the relevant 'suspicious cyclist' report.
Wow. Holy, high handlebars, hombres!
Bloomin' barmpot bikers and blinkin' bright brake-lights, Batman. What a weird way to go about bombing, eh?
What's next, we wonder?
The Washington war on wheels?
