Self Righteous Cyclists

12 06 2009

How dare we slow motorists down for mere seconds! They are in CARS! They must be INFINITELY more important than a person on a bike. I mean, think of the atrocity, a person driving must slow down and wait 10 SECONDS! TEN SECONDS! to pass a person having the audacity to obey the law and ride in the street as prescribed by nearly every municipality laws and regulations the United States over. UNBELIEVABLE! don’t cyclists know that it is worth their life for a driver to make it to the next red light before them? For Christs sake, drivers have to HURRY UP AND STOP! cant cyclists see that?

Cars weigh thousands of pounds more than bikes.

Cars can travel literally HUNDREDS of miles an hour faster than bikes.

Cars can kill.

Slow down, use some common courtesy, and watch out for those of us that are literally risking our lives to go to work, school,  train for a race, or anything else a cyclist may be doing. Drivers, you can spare 10 seconds of your time and get to starbucks 10 seconds later to ensure the safety of a cyclist.

I almost was hit this morning by a young kid texting while driving. My life is not worth your text message.

Please.

Yes, Kevin. Because there are ALWAYS bike paths EVERYWHERE I need to go for me to make use of. While cycling a magical path unfurls before my front tyre and disappears behind me after I pass, its ace, I love it. Actually that only happens when i drink heavily, but nonetheless its still great.

How dare we slow bicyclists down for mere seconds! They are on BIKES! They must be INFINITELY more morally sound than a person in a car. I mean, think of the atrocity, a person cycling must let cars pass and wait 10 SECONDS! TEN SECONDS! to block a person having the audacity to obey the law and ride in the street as prescribed by nearly every municipality laws and regulations the United States over. UNBELIEVABLE! don’t drivers know that it is worth their life for a cyclist to make it to the next red light before them? For Christs sake, cyclists have to HURRY UP AND STOP (unless they just run the red, as usual)! cant cyclists see that?

Bikes weigh thousands of pounds less than cars. (and are much more nimble to pull over and let people pass)

Bikes can travel literally HUNDREDS of miles an hour slower than cars (so for the amount of ground you lose for every second you lose on a bike, your losing 10x the amount of ground in a car).

Bikes can (and do) kill.

Grow up.

Outrageous. Bikes should be relegated to parks and playgrounds. If you don’t drive, walk or take a taxi. I really don’t care about you or your bike. I don’t have 10 seconds to spare and I don’t frequent chains, including Starbucks.
