Once time when I was a kid, my folks and I were stuck in a traffic jam that happened to pass by a public park. There was a bike path (not a sidewalk, an actual designated bike path) that ran alongisde the road.

This guy comes by on his bike, riding *in the road* and damn near takes out the passenger side mirror so
my mother yells at him to try riding his bike on the bike path where it belongs.

The cyclist had a hissy fit and turned around, came back and started yelling and cussing at my mother through the open window. We couldn't move because of the traffic jam, so mom rolled up the window and the guy STILL stayed there, yelling and actually pounding on our car for another 5 minutes or so before riding off.

Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.

PJ-: The main problem cyclists have is the fact that they think they won't get hurt on the road. I used to be a bike messenger, and the first rule I had for myself was anything on the road could potentially kill me. Respect cars, because they can squish you, respect pedestrians because you could easily end up just as hurt, if not more hurt if you hit them.

It's really not hard, but if a car does push my boundaries, my kryptonite u-lock easily separates rear view mirrors from the side of your car.


I've ridden with guys that knew they could get hurt, but waived it off with "but the driver will be in soooo much trouble". That's a fine consolation when you've done the human crayon for 15 feet or so.

rooftop235: ShawnDoc: ArkAngel: I ride very carefully, sometimes on the road, sometimes on the sidewalk. Most of my city does not have bike lanes and it would not be safe for me to travel on the street everywhere. In addition, I often have to ride on the sidewalk in order to bypass streetlights, which don't detect me. I generally defer right of way to cars, even when it is mine because I realize that while my bike may dent their fender or scratch their paint, their car will turn me into Hawaiian shirt-wrapped goo. When I am on the sidewalk, I am very careful with pedestrians, especially children and pets because of their unpredictability. I have come close to hitting people a few times, but in those cases, it is generally people who aren't looking where they are going or people blindly stepping out from a door or corner. I have almost been hit by cars several times for the same reason. Cyclists need to realize that we are in the middle, despite having street legal vehicles, and travel that way.

Careful now, or Critical Mass will string you up for talking such blasphemy.

O lot of those Critical Asses folks here in Orlando are really rude. I am talking to you, friggin hippie on the really tall bike that enjoys blocking the lanes on Bumby, Virginia, and Mills.
Some of those folks really are turds.

This one time, when I was driving near downtown Portland, I came upon a duo of road bikers dressed in the colorful uni's and everything. We were on a split 4 lane expressway with a single bike lane in each direction. Well... These superstars were riding abreast, one in the bike lane and one a foot into a the left lane causing a half dozen cars to be stuck driving 23 in a 45 mph zone. I almost got some elitism on me when I finally got to pass. I almost heard them say "Efffffff the rules!"

If you can ride side by side without disrupting traffic then go ahead. However, I have yet to see any designated bike lanes that are that wide. So, if you are riding in traffic (or even on a bike path) then ride single file!

I loathe the Seattle cyclists. There isn't a more self-important group of douchebags in the whole city.

The QFC near my place is less then half a mile, so I walk most of the time. Part of the walk is a four lane, one way street (mercer) that goes under an overpass and has very narrow sidewalks (two people can barely walk side by side) with sheer wall on one side and a main surface street on the other. The cars on that road go pretty fast as well.

Instead of riding on the street for 4 more blocks and going around, tons of cyclists just barrel down the hill on the the sidewalk. Most of them won't get off their bike when there are pedestrians an give you a ration of shiat when you don't flatten yourself against the wall so they don't have to slow down. It sucks even more if your carrying a couple bags of groceries. I've had enough of these assholes.

So now I will give them the same amount of room as I would give another pedestrian if they were to pass me, but not an inch more. If they have to swerve onto the road and get their fruity little legs crushed by a truck, that's their problem. If they hit me, I will sue them.

Walk your bikes on the sidewalk you farking jackasses!

Yea, I had a couple other messengers that had that attitude, hell, they used to hope that someone would hit because they would hit the 'jackpot'. I didn't want to get hit by cars, but it happened, all of them were no fault of my own.

One when I was traveling downhill, when with about 10 feet to spare, a car door opened right in front of me. I did manage to yank the bike to the left, so only my handle bar clipped the car door, I was airborne for about 2 car lengths, and rolled about 2 more car lengths. I was lucky because there happened to be a firetruck parked around the corner doing groceries. I had them reset my shoulder (yea, I dislocated my shoulder), then walked my bike up to the closest bike shop for some quick repairs. Driver ended up giving me false information, but luckily I wrote down his license plate and was able to get the money for repairs.

Other time, I'm going straight, and a car decided that it was going to make a right turn. Problem was he didn't have the room, crushed my front tire, ended up looking like a U. But instead of stopping to make sure all was good, he decided he was going to drive away. I spotted his plate, wrote it down and reported it to police.

Riding a bike on the road is the same as operating heavy machinery. Have respect for the equipment, and understand that you can lose your life at any given moment, and you increase your odds of not getting injured. The reason I stated about my lock taking off rear view mirrors, is because like cyclists, there are asshole drivers that don't give a shiat about anything else on the road.

I hate critical mASS, mostly because someone put one of their damn stickers on my bike while it was locked up at a public bike rack and some of the paint peeled off when I removed it. I also hate them because they are assholes who think that they are sending a positive message. All they are generally doing is reinforcing people's existing views towards cyclists and pissing off motorists. The worst offense I saw was a critical mASS here in Chicago about 3 years ago, heading up Lincoln Avenue. Two cyclists at the lead of the pack sprinted ahead, through a red light, and stopped in the middle of the intersection. An SUV had to slam on his brakes to avoid hitting these assholes who suddenly stopped in the middle of the intersection where the car had the right of way. How can this in any way, shape, or form send a positive message? The only message it sends is, "We are assholes with no regard for the law." In retrospect I really had wished that the SUV had been unable to stop in time. And while I would have been quick to administer first aid to the assholes I would have been just as quick to tell the police how they recklessly broke the law and were the ones at fault.

Another time I saw critical mASS riding up Milwaukee Avenue and the riders in the back were wearing t-shirts with "F**k you, ride a bike" on the back. They were also flipping off any motorist who honked their horn. Again, how does this in any way, shape, or form send a positive message?

And, Yes, I do understand that these are individuals and do not fully represent every rider in critical mASS, but the people that they piss off will generally not make that distinction.

Did they respond to the rest of the complaints by putting up signs directed at motorists that say

"Look where you're going"
"Off the cellphone, douche"
"Quit tailgating"
"No you can't put on your makeup on your way to work"

I think the cyclists have a point. With the state of driving skills these days, they don't need singling out.

Cyclists fark up the rules of the road. Stop signs are optional depending on their own safety and convenience. 100% will run a stop sign if no traffic threatens them. 20% will run a stop sign even if traffic threatens them if they feel they can get away with it. But this isn't a huge deal. I can see the logic they use in a limited environment. They're not hurting anyone I guess.

It's the long-term effect that really messes things up. Drivers are afraid to make a left hand turn in front of a moving cyclist who hasn't yet stopped. They'll start yielding despite having the right of way. Some cyclists will take this as a courtesy nod and just start doing it all the time. Other drivers will not understand why a car is stopped so they'll go out of turn. etc. etc. This gets jacked beyond all comprehension at 8:00 am when pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists are all competing for the same space and cyclists think the road rules are optional.

It's not a pain. I call it "interval training." Would I rather hit a green light at every intersection? Of course. But I feel that way when I'm driving my car, too. Doesn't mean I am justified in running red lights regardless of what vehicle I'm driving/riding at the time.

mark12A:
ArkAngel has it right. You HAVE to bike like the cars are out to get you. And yes, despite the frothing-at-the-mouth denunciations of riding on the sidewalk, you *can* do it safely and sanely by keeping your speed down and staying well away from people. And if you can't see around a corner, slow down to walking speed. I noticed last year they actually moved part of the bike lane on Columbus blvd. ONTO THE SIDEWALK! Yup, look for it near the Coast Guard Station.

I'm in my 12th season of biking the dirty mean streets of Philly, riding against traffic, riding on the sidewalk, etc. The key to survival is to STAY AWAY FROM CARS. KEEP YOUR EYES ON THEM. DON'T TRUST THEM. ASSUME THEY ARE OUT TO GET YOU.


I still remember when my dad was teaching me how to drive. He said, "If you assume that all of the other drivers are trying to kill you and drive accordingly, it is less likely that any one of them will kill you." Made sense to me even back when I was sure my dad was stupid.

Now that a bike is my primary means of transportation, and probably also because of the memory of what the marks on the FARKING EARTH looked like after my last car crash (can't imagine what it would have looked like on flesh rather than hard packed decomposed granite), sharing a road with cars scares the bejebus out of me.

So, I ride on the sidewalk whenever possible. I slow down before blind turns. If there's someone walking on the sidewalk and the street isn't busy, I'll hop off the curb and back on once I've passed them. If the street is busy I'll just slow down and wait. I use the pedestrian buttons at streetlights so that maybe the homicidal maniacs in this town will see the little walking dude and get the hint that somebody's trying to go through the intersection. If they don't, do you know what I do? I wait. It's just not worth it to do anything else.

My only beef with drivers is when they're turning right out of a parking lot or onto another street and they do not once look to the right. I'm not gonna get sidewalk rage and go knocking off mirrors or anything, but it bottles the mind to think that there are people licensed to drive who will pull out into a road without even once looking the other way. It's much safer to patiently wait until these individuals are on the road heading away from you before you continue your ride down the sidewalk.

/Occasionally when stopped at traffic lights I'll have a spandex type tell me that I should ride on the road and not the sidewalk. I ask them if they trust the people in the cars. If they say yes I know that they're stupid. If they say no I ask them why they do stupid things.

Works kind of the same way as the left lane vigilantes holding up traffic. You piss people off, and if they can't take it out on you, they take it out on somebody else, who gets pissed off and takes it out on somebody else, until you have a whole road full of ragers, all spawned by the original road troll.

KrustyKitten: Uchiha_Cycliste: Right now I'm working on 3 days of LSD to recover from this weeks riding. I've found an aweseom route through atherton, then across Stanfurd then over towards moffet field and the trail by 237.

Saturday was Old La honda to La honda to Pescadero creek to hwy 1 to santa cruz. (3:00/60mi/3800')+ the last 25 miles + 800' took me an hour.

sunday full rest.
monday: up hwy 9, down hwy 9, san tomas expressway. 50 miles, 3500' 3:05.
Tuesday : old la honda, 35, 9, san tomas. (48 miles, 3 hrs, 3500')
feels good man.

Those sound like beautiful but dangerous routes.


They are pretty safe as long as you are riding safely and going the right way on the right roads.
For instance descending 84 on the bay side is all fine and dandy because you are faster than cars but ascending 84 is insane because there is no shoulder, it's just asking for trouble. technically you should be able to do whatever you want, but... you need to have a little common sense if you want to stay safe.
ALso, oh my god monday was amazing, wake up ride along the coast (west cliff) for a few miles, spend 30 miles in the forests and small towns that pepper hwy 9, then the fast, amazing, fun descent into Los Gatos. It was like heaven.

Can I use Deore combo shifter/levers with Avid BB7 brakes?


since they are mechanical discs, you should have no problem. Deores are pretty stout, have a good amount of lever throw and are comfortable. I don't see why it wouldn't work. The only downside is you lose so of the adjustments (like neutral position and distance from bars) that you would get with , say, avid levers.

JerkStore: I have no beef with most cyclists and treat them with respect. I'll pass when I can, I try to give them extra room, and I don't make gestures. It's cool 99% of the time.

But once in a while, you get that guy who is riding his bike during rush hour on the busiest street in the city, and it creates all kinds of headaches. Yes, I know you're allowed to be there, but that's just a Grade-A asshole move. There are a lot of alternative streets that have less traffic and go to the same place, and well, since you are doing it for exercise after all, you really shouldn't object to an extra block or two of riding distance. So please think of your fellow "motorists" and realize that when you are clogging 50% of the main artery into downtown, sooner or later someone is gonna get sick of your shiat after waiting in a traffic jam that YOU caused with your righteous ride to work.

It's almost like you're asking for it just to prove a point. Not so sure that's a smart idea against 4000 pounds of steel at 35-40 MPH.


I honestly don't know the circumstances of traffic in your downtown area, but in my downtown area, I can assure you that traffic is caused by too many cars in the street, not one lone biker.

I ride a bike to weave through traffic. when we have bad traffic, the cars are moving very slowly, and stopped for much of the time. However, if your traffic does not involve very slow speeds and frequent stops, I am prepared to wager that you don't have bad traffic.

In bad traffic, I am biking faster than the cars. I am not having an affect on the cars, because I can see they are only moving as fast as the other cars allow them. for the most part they are completely stopped. when they are moving, I am still passing cars.

If the car traffic is at a pace faster than the biker can travel, then you don't have bad traffic, and you should just lighten up

I have a friend, who is also a girl, who performs in triathalons. for some reason, all she can ever talk about is how normal it is to be pee all over yourself while running one of these.

/ she's a doctor, so she talks a lot about pee and poop. like it's no big deal. potty mouth.

That sign was simply stupid.

Cars need to be considerate.

Bikes need to not be douche bags, take off the head phones, wear a farking helmet, ride in the correct place and NEVER use the farking cell phone.

I'm a big biker in a town that is pretty good for it but I can't STAND it when people bike like they have NO BRAINS! I mean, really? Texting? You deserve to be darwined for that, but I don't deserve the crap for simply riding safely.

ha-ha-guy: Nice bike paths along the side of the road. No bicyclist wants a fully separate path as joggers, mothers with strollers, and dog walkers take up that bike path. We have a path out here specifically designed for bikers to move between two roads and all kinds of signs on it saying "Commuting Bikers Only". Yet you can't use it because some asshole is standing on one side of the bike path with his 20 feet retractable dog leash played out across the path to clothesline you.

A nice separate bike lane (structured so all the road debris doesn't collect on it) is the solution. Separate bike paths and remarking the shoulder are wastes of your money. Foot traffic renders the first unusable and the debris on the shoulder makes the second option unusable.


Around here, they're in the process of replacing the commuter bike lane (had a barrier separating it from car traffic and a curb separating it from the sidewalk) with a brand new path that is made of pavers and is at the same height as the sidewalk. I can't wait for this summer to see how many pedestrians get hit and the new level of rage.

Wheels are for old ladies and crippled veterans.

I'm a proud pedestrian, and I always have the right of way.

Some of you people need to get out more often.

Don't forget to wear your helmet.

Admit it, it all depends on who exactly is slowing you down. Don't worry, the McDonald's your heading too isn't going anywhere.

Ok, that about does it for now. Gonna head out for a bike ride now while you haters stay fat.


HOLY SHIAT! You mean to tell me hot women do the same stuff that ugly women do?!

If you can't pick up the sarcasm, I'm saying I don't care how hot or ugly you are, pay attention to the farking rules of the road. I can see hotter people with even less clothing at any time thanks to the internet.
