Cracks in the Law?

Bicycling's image as the preferred mode of travel for perverts and losers seems to be showing some cracks. A story from September in the New York Observer comments on the outrageous phenomenon of women (models and actresses, even!) riding bikes in NYC. While one might interpret this as a step in the right direction--surely if models do it, it can't be only for perverts and losers!--though there is the taint of perversion in the fetishism of pretty girls on bikes. See comments to the Observer story, as well as the Copenhagen Cycle Chic blog, devoted to photos of women on bikes, and the similar montage from Monkey Warfare.
