Spinning Jenny

Jenny WardImage shamelessly lifted from invisiblegovernment

Jenny Ward, an unfortunately well-known Sydney anti-cyclist nutbag is at it again. An example of Jenny's previous diatribes From Todays Age (see letter below) Think Jennys stupidity/naivety requires more than writing letters in response, she needs to have her awareness (politely) broadened. Anyone have a contact for her in Sydney & willing to take her out for a spin on Sydneys streets? Again, politely of course.

Soup and other Nazis (30th August 2005)
MEAGHAN Wilson-Anastasios (Letters, 29/8), have you not seen the "Soup Nazi" episode of Seinfeld? Jim Schembri has made a legitimate, humorous comment on the superior attitude of some cyclists, who consider their needs above those of their fellow users of public spaces. Obviously, you have never been subjected to the bully-boy tactics of the lycra louts who infest the footpaths and streets. Either you are very fortunate, or you should get out more. Jenny Ward, Erskineville, NSW
"bully-boy tactics of the lycra louts" Ah, c'mon, thats bloody sexist! Returning to topic, Ms Ward is writing an response to, this letter (10th down)Which was in turn an response to this moronic article. I suppose we can appreciate her POV, but as an a cyclist involved with improving awareness via advocacy et al, I'm becoming increasingly annoyed with these kneejerk opinions. And hey, I didn't come down with the last shower either. Here you go: The Age: send your letters to:, Fax: +61 (0) 3 96012414 Snailmail: 250 Spencer Street, Melbourne 3000
