“I’ve only been ‘doored’ twice,” says Marcellus Hall, the artist who penned this week’s cover, “Urban Cycles.” Hall goes on to explain how he’s managed to survive for fifteen years as a cyclist in the city: “I’m very careful. I look into the side mirrors of the parked cars to see if there’s movement inside. I ride only on the left side of the street because there’s less of chance of a passenger getting out than of a driver. Actually, I read it in some cyclist publication that, as a cyclist, you’re allowed to take up a whole lane and sometimes, I even do that—though it’s a risky proposition. I’m not one of those hard-core bike freaks; it’s just a good way for me to get around in the city.”
