Yeeeeeeaaahhh...hmmm....I don't cycle myself, but I'm pretty sure there are far more asshole/idiot drivers out there than cyclists.

Proportionately as well.

That is a very, very small percentage of bicyclists, and every single one of them deserves to spend the rest of their lives in a vegetative state.

Actually, it's the ones who ride on the left hand side of the road, on the sidewalk and ignoring stop signs, that I really, really hate.

I just moved to Virginia Beach, and there are a lot of cyclists here. Most of them I have absolutely no problem with (in fact, I'm one of them):

- Road bikers riding the streets, they seem to all be highly visible and follow the road rules. Cool
- Hipsters cruising the beach boardwalk with their ridiculously high "ape-hanger" style handlebars. Cool
- Families riding the various bike paths and rail trails. Cool.
- MTB guys riding trails in the park. Cool.

The ones who drive me nuts are the >= middle aged guys who look like one or two steps above derelict, but a couple steps below the type of person who makes regular employment a goal. They ride around all day long, but don't seem to be going anywhere. Usually with a plastic shopping bag hanging off the handlebars, and occasionally drunk. They cut through anywhere, go down the road the wrong way, cross the street anyplace, weave through traffic, block sidewalks, and ride through crowded sidewalks.

Assholes like this give courteous bikers like me a bad name.

I don't care if you're a good driver, bad driver, or whatever... you have a 4,000 lb weapon. I'm going to avoid you at all costs.
 
2012-06-16 05:45:23 PM  
Um, the parts where they're shooting guns at each other are fake, right? How much else is?

Anyhow, I saw far too many cars hitting their brakes in that video. Those guys probably don't have enough life insurance to cover the damage they do to your car, but take one for the team.

I commute by bike every day along a very busy bike route in Seattle downtown. 99% of bike riders are very careful and considerate. If im stopped at a light with 6-7 other riders and one asshole on a fixie decides he doesnt need to stop with the rest of us, you better damn well expect me to chew you out. Your shiatty behavior makes the rest of us look bad and the last thing I need is another angry guy in a car chasing me down the road honking his horn and flipping me off because someone else cut him off on a bike.
 
2012-06-16 06:10:05 PM  
As a cyclist myself, I hate these people too.

Maybe rename in it "Jackass on Bikes"?

Besides which, it's not a competition to claim which mode of transport has the worst people. Just agree that 100% of these particular people are dangerous irresponsible assholes and leave it at that.

And I'd argue that most people text and drive don't think they're being a danger. That's farking stupid of course but these people are intentionally going out of their way to be disruptive and dangerous.

Exactly, I fail to understand the mindset of biking everywhere. Yes I have the right to ride my bike on surface roads, but a number of the roads clearly weren't designed with my safety in mind. So I find alternate routes around them. A couple extra miles winding through suburban side streets is more fun than playing chicken on the four lane, no shoulder, main road.

If you're a biker and you feel like you got farked in terms of road design, talk to the DOT, playing chicken with the F250s isn't worth it.

/of course urban bikers don't always have those options
 
2012-06-16 06:47:12 PM  
I hate them because they get together in huge groups and clog up the two-lane can't-see-far-enough-ahead-to-pass winding roads I drive to get home every day.

A 7 mile commute at 15 miles per hour is obnoxious, especially in a standard-shift, especially staring at skinny dude asses the whole trip.

GET OFF THE DAMN ROAD. YOU ARE NOT, NOR EVER WILL BE, LANCE F*CKING ARMSTRONG.

He didn't break the mirror. It was on a pivot and when he hit it the mirror sprung forward. All the guy had to do was reach out and pull it back.

Still illegal to hit that mirror and in bad taste.

If you should catch these bikers on your street, scratching up your car with their lycra covered ass hairs, you'll understand.

Critical Mass is why people hate bikers.

Because getting together en masse, clogging a major roadway, and going as farkING SLOW AS POSSIBLE is how to get people to sympathize with the plight of the poor, misunderstood bicyclist.

It's wrong to run over cyclists in general. However I understand completely how it would happen. Heck, one the videos on youtube, I would vote to pardon the guy because the cyclists were attacking his car and not letting him pass, so he nudged out, one went down, and he just drove off. No one was seriously hurt and the dude who went down should have gotten a beating from his friends for being such a dickhole and antagonizing the driver so much. That's what would happen in a civilized group.

Instead they all clustered around Mr. Ureathra and were simply pathetic. . . sorry, I mean sympathetic. But yeah, there's millions of innocent people on bikes who deserve a chance at safe transit, then there's Critical Mass and these people in the video.

It hurt the rider a hell of a lot more than it hurt the car. Was it right? Of course not. Was it a big deal? Absolutely not.

What's with the violent threats? You are aware that bicycles are legally road vehicles and have a legal right to be there, don't you? And even if they didn't, or you didn't know, you're surely aware that hitting people is a serious offence, aren't you? As in, cuffed, stuffed, prosecuted, sentenced, and criminal record offence. You did know that, right? Even threatening can be actionable. You can even go to jail for threatening under some circumstances.

Drivers need to chill the fark out. Everyone needs to chill the fark out. Road irritations are a problem of privileged people. If it's really that big a deal for you, then you've got a very narrow perspective.

Oh no no, haven't you been following the thread? If a cyclist annoys you, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO CAUSE THEM GRIEVOUS BODILY HARM.

See, how it works is, people with larger vehicles have superior legal rights to people will smaller vehicles. If your vehicle is physically capable of overpowering someone else's, then you have the legal right to do so, in whatever manner suits you.* If they get in the way of your dickmobile. (Or offend you in some other way, such as being in a position where you are able to view their posteriors and you are both male.) All of this has been clarified many times in many threads like this. Where have you been?

* In some cases, you may instead have the offending party shot, or shoot them yourself.

What's with the outrage? You are aware that bicycles are also required to follow the rules of the road, aren't you? And even if they weren't, or you weren't aware, you're surely aware that it's impossible for a truck that large to swerve into oncoming traffic to avoid one's mirror hitting a bicyclist who just swerved out into one's lane, aren't you?

You need to follow your own advice and chill the fark out. Outrage over benign Internet comments are a problem of overly privileged snowflake-type people. If it's really that big a deal for you, then you've got bigger problems.

Dude, you're not making yourself look good.

Bikes do have a legal right to the road. Read the law: they're road vehicles. There are rules of accommodation, which vary from place to place, but bikes are allowed on most roads. In fact, it's often expressly illegal for them to ride anywhere else. Motorists need to chill out and get over the notion that they own the road. You don't. The road is a shared public resource, and everyone has some right to it. So get over that. Moreover, motoring is a privilege, not a right, that's revokable. You do not have a right to drive. Nor do you have a right to wholly unimpeded travel, or travel at whatever speed you desire.

Are Critical Mass riders breaking the law? Yes, they are. Is that worth getting up a head of steam over? No, it's not. Let it go and move on with your life. If you threaten anyone with a car, it's actionable. If you actually contact anyone with your car, it's very definitely actionable, and will almost certainly be actioned. And I promise you, a court of law will not be impressed with your whiny little rant.

Life is for living. Live it, and stop getting your dick in a twist over First World problems.

The First Amendment does not afford citizens the right to make credible threats. But you have the right to say pretty much any stupid thing you want in most cases, so rest easy.
