"He said it's very disturbing, and it's distracting the cars and it's dangerous," Rijcken told the Daily News. "I thought he was joking around but he got angry and asked me for ID." [...] "I didn't even think for one second that my outfit could be harmful or disturbing," she said. As general manager of a Dutch bicycle company, Rijcken was in New York to attend the New Amsterdam Bike Show and hopped on her wheels that sunny day to experience biking in New York City first hand. [...] NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said: "Whether this story bears even a modest semblance of what actually occurred is impossible to establish without being provided the purported officer's name and getting his side of the story."Yes, indeed, this could all be a viral marketing promo spoof since Jasmijn is indeed pimping that lovely VANMOOF cycle! Nevertheless, just in case, methinks New York's "Finest" could use a good inoculating dose of international cycle chic!
