xanadian: I'm sure this thread will be filled with reasoned debate regarding cyclists and cycling.


There's no debate really. I don't own a car so I ride my bike everywhere. I don't do it because of the environment or because I'm a hippy or anything, I just can't afford auto insurance and I don't have a driver's license. I live in St. Petersburg, Florida which is not always an easy place to navigate (but a lot better than Tampa, damn!)

There is only one thing you need to know: Never trust anyone driving a car, and never expect them to stop for you, pay attention to you, or notice you. Stop for them. Always, no matter if you have the right-of-way. You may not like them and may want to yell at them for being ignorant of your divine rights as a biker, but you will lose this battle every time, so just shut up, stay on the sidewalk where you belong, and quit acting like drivers are ever going to treat you as an equal because "that's the law."

When you get on a busy roadway on a bicycle your only thought should be how to stay alive. Never think the guy behind you isn't methed out of his skull right now.

The "law" won't do you much good when they are scraping your brains off the roadway.

here's a video with her. Yeah I'd do her, but I don't know if she'd stand out enough in a group of female triathletes to say that it was because I was attracted to her.

The important thing here is that leaving the bike lane to pass a slower rider is completely legal. Asshat cop ruined peoples' race and wasted everyone's time because he doesn't know the laws he's paid to enforce.

Don't listen to this guy. Last thing we need is more cyclists doing this, convincing more drivers that that's how it's supposed to work. Take your lane and follow the laws just like you'd expect any other vehicle to do.

Also strap video cameras to your bike in case anything happens. You can get a decent camera for under $200.

"Sometimes even if you honk, they don't move," she said. "They'll flip you off or start screaming at you as you drive past. I honked at the cyclists to alert them I was behind them while they were taking up the entire street and they didn't move. They began flipping me off and as I drove past."

Actually, a guy in my fencing group does this; he's been hit something like three times in five years, busted leg, concussion, various ribs, etc...his helmet video camera is helping him collect a tidy sum from the last idiot who ran him down. He just got married, so it'll be a nice downpayment for their house.

My only issue with cyclists is that you don't need to wear your full Spandex getup for every ride.

When you're doing a couple of loops around the park, you'll be just fine in a regular pair of shorts and tshirt.

And, runners. Stop wearing those little farking belts with 10 little water bottles in them for a 6 mile run. You look ridiculous when regular people are out there doing 10 miles just drinking out of the fountains on the trail.

Pretty much. I'm going to be out there riding anyhow, so if some asshat is going to run me down, at least I'll have enough evidence to send his ass to jail for a long time.

I started out with just one mounted to my handlebars, but now I have one under the seatpost facing backwards, and another one on my helmet. Might be coincidental at this point, but it seems like when I added the helmet cam, drivers actually started noticing that they were on camera and began behaving a little better.

macadamnut: stay on the sidewalk where you belong


Hell yeah I stay on the sidewalk as much as possible. Wow I'd hate to inconvenience a pedestrian to move to the right a little rather than risk death on the road.

Sorry dude, I like to survive and I know my fellow man is an idiot. You bike on a roadway, you are putting implicit trust in every single anonymous car that zooms mere feet by you that they are not texting, drinking, drinking and texting, getting a blow job, doing their makeup, falling asleep, etc., etc.

That's just not smart human behavior. That's like Darwinism at work if you die out there with a perfectly good sidewalk 10 feet over with a couple of cute chicks jogging or something.

Most places prohibit bikers from using sidewalks so they don't run down pedestrians. It'd be quite painful to get hit by a Lance Armstrong wannabe, flying down the sidewalk at 20 to 30 mph.

Bikers are supposed to stay to the edge of the lane of traffic on the shoulder or breakdown lane.

Why the farking joggers are in the middle of the road when there's a sidewalk next to them is a much more valid question.
 
2012-07-23 09:51:06 AM

SchlingFocker: Runners who run 3 and 4 abreast in the trail and give you stink eye when you don't move as you're running towards them are pretty farking obnoxious too.

As long as you obey the rules as you would if you were a pedestrian, you're fine on the sidewalks.

May I ask what types you use? I have an older Oregon Scientific (I think) that's mounted on my handle bars, but it's too bulky to use as a helmet cam and the sound is only good when i'm stopped. I think I need to upgrade and get a rear facing cam too.

+1 Internet on this. Laws are one thing, self-preservation is what matters. In my experience, someone driving a 2 ton SUV is usually on the cell phone as well and is not paying enough attention to anything around them, so the bike riders (and other auto drivers) need to drive defensively even if they have the right of way.

fluffy2097: Nothing in the article says that they were racing. They were just riding their bikes.


What difference does that make? They are legally required to be in the road as riding on sidewalks is prohibited in most places and observe vehicle and traffic laws. Supposed there is no designated bike lane?
A bike in front of you in a car has the right of way, so move to the left and pass when safe to do so.

It's just a fashion fad that's popped up here in the last few years (bottle belts).

If you're actually doing enough mileage to deplete your electrolytes, pin a gu pack or two inside your shorts. Same result, and you don't have a million bottles jingling around.

But the bulk of the people wearing those are doing light, short runs where electrolytes aren't an issue.

Cyclists that ride together two or three beside each other (instead of single file) deserve to get ticketed. Brief passing is okay, but wait until there are no cars. Otherwise you deserve the ticket.
And as for the complaint about being the only one getting a ticket: that reminds me of the following joke:

Not in Illinois:
From ILLINOIS VEHICLE CODE 625 ILCS 5/

Sec. 11-1505. Position of bicycles and motorized pedal cycles on roadways-Riding on roadways and bicycle paths.
(a) Any person operating a bicycle or motorized pedal cycle upon a roadway at less than the normal speed of traffic at the time and place and under the conditions then existing shall ride as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway except under the following situations: 1. When overtaking and passing another bicycle, motorized pedal cycle or vehicle proceeding in the same direction; or 2. When preparing for a left turn at an intersection or into a private road or driveway; or 3. When reasonably necessary to avoid conditions including, but not limited to, fixed or moving objects, parked or moving vehicles, bicycles, motorized pedal cycles, pedestrians, animals, surface hazards, or substandard width lanes that make it unsafe to continue along the right-hand curb or edge. For purposes of this subsection, a "substandard width lane" means a lane that is too narrow for a bicycle or motorized pedal cycle and a vehicle to travel safely side by side within the lane.
(b) Any person operating a bicycle or motorized pedal cycle upon a one-way highway with two or more marked traffic lanes may ride as near the left-hand curb or edge of such roadway as practicable.

Sec. 11-1505.1. Don't ride more than 2 abreast; Stay in one lane
Persons riding bicycles or motorized pedal cycles upon a roadway shall not ride more than 2 abreast, except on paths or parts of roadways set aside for their exclusive use. Persons riding 2 abreast shall not impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic and, on a laned roadway, shall ride within a single lane subject to the provisions of Section 11-1505 [625 ILCS 5/11-1505].

You may not like them and may want to yell at them for being ignorant of your divine rights as a biker, but you will lose this battle every time, so just shut up, stay on the sidewalk where you belong, and quit acting like drivers are ever going to treat you as an equal because "that's the law."

When you get on a busy roadway on a bicycle your only thought should be how to stay alive. Never think the guy behind you isn't methed out of his skull right now.

The "law" won't do you much good when they are scraping your brains off the roadway.

Ya, this is a real farking impartial statement here. 'I DON'T OWN A CAR BUT HERE IS MY LAW ON HOW YOU ACT'.


He's not wrong.
