Hunt’s cycling behavior was disrespectful

There is nothing fun about traffic, nor do I consider it an acceptable avenue for City Council to express their civic applicability. I found nothing lighthearted about Marc Hunt’s recent cycling behavior while participating in their annual race from UNCA to City Hall this Tuesday [“Rumbles of Cheating as Biker Declared Winner in Multimodal City Council Race,” May 20, Xpress].

Not only did he play-cheat his way to victory, but he did it at the expense of the laws and individuals he’s been elected to represent. As far as I’m concerned, his actions illustrate an essential disrespect for the very foundations a fair and functional society relies upon. I would prefer if he and any of those who share his casual attitude toward such an immediately serious reality as is our street’s traffic, to refrain from participation until he, or they, have taken the time to give a proper, relevant concern.
