OK, it is hard to determine if the van swerving "at" him was intentional or not. The van driver could have been swerving to avoid a rough spot in the road. Nor do we know how close the van came to the cyclist. Hard to judge who was in the wrong on this one. Given the way some cyclists act like they own the roads and given the way that some drivers act like cyclists are nothing but moving targets I will going to call this one a tie.

It is also hard to determine if the driver intentionally blocked the cyclist at the intersection. Maybe he did. Maybe he did not. But, does that really matter? Does the cyclist absolutely have to be able to pass all the stopped cars and get right up to the stop sign/traffic light? The answer to that is, "No." Being able to pass all those stopped cars and get through up to the intersection is a luxury that cyclists enjoy. It is not a guaranteed right. Nor is it even a law that allows it. I have recently started riding again in Chicago and sometimes when I am approaching a stop sign or traffic light some driver is too far over to the right to allow me to pass between them and the parked cars. Now, I will admit that it irks me. But, it is a very minor irk. When it happens I just go really slowly or stop until I can pass by or or until the traffic starts moving again. It really is nothing to get worked up about.

That being said the cyclist was a douche for spitting. A lot of people take great offense at spitting, be it spitting on them or at their vehicle. If you spit at/on someone do not be surprised if they turn around and start a fight with you. If the driver was just being a dick and all that then what good does it do to confront the driver about it? If you do confront them it is not like they are going to suddenly stop and say to themselves, "You know, I was wrong to do what I did. I now love cyclists!" All that confronting them does is make them hate cyclists even more. Dude should have just accepted it as part of being a cyclist and not given it a second thought. I am also willing to bet money that this cyclist has on more than one occasion blown through a stop sign and pissed off some driver who suddenly had to hit the brakes because some douche just rode in front of their car.

Apparently he did too. Bicycle locks on a couple feet of chain make a nice weapon when you need it.

From the article it sounds like everyone involved should be sent to their rooms for timeout.

This cyclist is an idiot. If someone in a van decides to get cute in traffic because they think they're safe in their multi-ton vehicle, you shouldn't spit on them. Instead, just smash their side view mirror with your bike lock, and turn up the next one-way street against traffic.

Bye asshole, enjoy your repair bill. Next time keep your distance.

You know, I didn't hate cars until I started riding a motorcycle. It's even worse for cyclists.

A minority of cyclists are dicks and ride irresponsibly/illegally, but they're the most visible. With cars/trucks, it's the opposite.
 
2010-10-03 04:50:21 PM  
Damn, if people started fights over someone in a car swerving toward them there would be a hell of a lot of fighting going on.

Perhaps he swerved on accident. Maybe not. But I kind of wish that the driver of the van had just straight up plastered this asshat. "Anti-bike" culture in Portland? Son, please. There are more bike riding hippies there than anywhere else in the state.
 
2010-10-03 04:50:57 PM  
I bet he rides a single speed bike with no brakes.

As a total douchebag cyclist from pdx, I'm definitely getting a kick out of this story.

This guy made the mistake of stopping. Next time, dent the van with the chain and take off down the sidewalk. Head towards Broadway and LLoyd center. There's no way some dumbass in a van could possibly catch you.

Cyclometh: A minority of cyclists are dicks and ride irresponsibly/illegally, but they're the most visible. With cars/trucks, it's the opposite.

It's true, and the reason cyclists get so pissed is because it's hard not to take it personally when someone is being brazen with a 3000 lb. automobile that could easily kill you, while they sit safe and sound in a metal box.

Basically, I don't care what the biker is doing... if you find yourself in traffic thinking "heh, I'll show HIM" and using your car to mess with a cyclist, you're a farking coward.
 
2010-10-03 04:54:07 PM  
Maybe it's because I live in L.A., but I regard people who initiate road rage incidents as being borderline suicidal. Doing shiat like this clown did is a real good way to get yourself dead in a hurry.
What an idiot.

Schadenfreude isn't much use to the dead. People who do that kind of shiat on the road are either very, very stupid - or place no value on their own lives.
It just ain't worth it, folks. Don't do it.

Actually - a lot of gun owners aren't even remotely responsible. It ain't the responsible ones you have to worry about. 'Round these parts, some fool get's shot in a road rage incident about once a month. And it doesn't help to be "right" - that just makes you "dead right".
The only intelligent thing to do when confronted with another driver or cyclist who is engaging in aggression is to get as far away from them as possible as fast as possible.
A meaningless incident, your "pride", your "manhood" - they aren't worth dying for. Don't be an idiot - you'll live longer.
