De Blasio’s NYC: Illegal Bike-Rental Thugs Threaten to Decapitate the Competition

The illegal bike hawkers who have been duping tourists into renting stolen bikes in Columbus Circle have waged war on the only legitimate bike rental company, violently harassing its workers.

Bike and Roll New York City, the only Central Park bike renter sanctioned by the city, told The Post that the illegal hawkers are so vicious, they have threatened to decapitate Bike and Roll’s employees.
