BREAKING: New York Times steals Beat Bike Blog's awesome idea from like four years ago

Critical infrastructure in Vermont.

Joel came up with this cool idea a few years ago of an annotated bike map for the Hartford region. It never really got finished, but it was a cool idea.

Obviously when looking for cool story ideas due to the return of bike interest in New York, they checked back issues of the beat bike blog and found our map, hired slick graphic designers and made this thing. While it may look much better and be in New York, it's basically the same as Joel's map. This is almost as bad as the time that spam blog stole all our posts.
