Epic rap battles of bicycling

Anyone familiar with Epic Rap Battles of History? If so (or even if not;), check out this spoof by John Greenfield, pitting John Forester against Mikael Colville-Andersen.

John Forester, I learned, is an American bicycle transportation advocate who believes in “vehicular cycling” — that is, integrating motorists and cyclists on the same infrastructure. Mikael Colville-Andersen is a Dutch-Canadian urban designer who would rather put cycling infrastructure on separate tracks. He also coined the phrase “cycle chic,” which refers to biking in your ever-so-fashionable everyday clothes. (If your everyday clothes, like mine, are not fashionable, but you bike in them anyway, I’m not sure where that puts you on the cycle chic spectrum. Cycle frump?;)

Here’s how Greenfield thinks Forester and Colville-Andersen might duke it out:
