Seems like bicyclists are just hardheaded. In Berlin there are bike paths everywhere but yet I saw riders everywhere outside the paths, and moving pretty fast.

A pensioner left fuming at cyclists using the shared path outside her home took revenge - by covering a biker with dog poo.

Battling Susan Currall, 75, hit out when Cambridge don Michael Ramage narrowly missed her on his bike.

She swung a full poop-a-scoop bag at him and it split, covering the architecture expert in excrement.

Currall, a former British Embassy worker, called the academic "a big bully" and told him "go cry to your mummy".

She was charged with assault and ordered to appear before magistrates in Cambridge where she admitted the offence.

The court heard that Currall has been waging a long-running feud with cyclists over the shared path outside her home in the city.

Monica Lentin, mitigating, said the pensioner "felt anxious" walking along the path because of cyclists speeding past.


I can't really support anyone here.

What makes it worse is you get lots of young men with powerful bikes riding at speed without any conscience that older people can't get out of the way easily.

These are bicycles under discussion, not the latest Gixxer. My guess is that except for the odd tandem, none of them has more than 1 person/power.

She added: "She did not see him coming in the opposite direction and he was not stopping for her which certainly in the olden days, a man on a bike would have got off and let her through."

Yeah, the 1950s were so much better than these modern times. Young men didn't have all these powerful bicycles to turn them away from giving her the right of way.

A bike and pedestrian path runs right in front of the CaptHollister household. I have never felt any need to fling poo. Well, that's not completely true: I would have liked to fling poo at the a**hole kid who liked to use the stop sign in front of my house as a shift point, complete with blowing pop-off valve, when racing his modified J-spec Daihatsu down my street. Fortunately the cops were able to put a stop to his stupidity shortly after I gave them an accurate description of his car. You see, unfortunately for him, there just aren't that many customized, right-hand drive, Japanese import, turbocharged Daihatsu Charades to be found in a small Canadian town like the one I live in (though there are 4 Skyline GTRs, a much better choice IMO). But I digress, so boo to poo-flinging Granny.

Flinging poo is so passe.  Today you need a RONCO Poo-o-Matic, to properly sling your poo.

"If you're not slinging, then you're just flinging!"

But wait, there's more!

If you act right now, we will include absolutely free, a RONCO In-Your-Anus Poop Scrambler, and a RONCO Turnip Twaddler!  So act now, while supplies last!

I've been riding since HS, sometimes for fun and sometimes as a commuter. I've never encounter a driver who I thought was being a douche because I was on a bike. I got a ticket once for blowing a stop sign, but that actually struck me as a sign of progress.

I'll go on and guess that's because there's everything except bikes on the bike path.


The last time I rode on a bike path I had to deal with: people walking dogs, including off leash and with leash stretched across the path, kids on bikes wandering all over the path unpredictably, even with their parents on bikes (also wandering unpredictably), pedestrians with baby carriages walking side-by-side taking up the whole width of the path, joggers side-by-side taking up the whole path, etc. This despite marked lanes and signs advising you to keep to the right. It's not about there not being enough bike paths, it's about them being used improperly/irresponsibly - including by those who will then jump into their cars and drive off, complaining about cyclists on the road.

Wait wait - he was coming towards her, and she got all indignant because he didn't completely stop and get off and gesture her forward with a sweeping arm so she could prance by like a little filly?

Fark you, biatch. I've got some sympathy for people who don't want to get run over, but how about you try getting the fark out of the way?

You did not know this, but I share the road with cyclists all the time.  Part of my daily commute involves a twisty mountain road with no bike lanes of any kind, no sidewalks, no trails, just a 2-lane (one up, one down) and a stripe along the edge and, you guessed it, cyclists.  not just the occasional pleasure riders, but staged events, populated by not just regular bicycles, but guys on those "recumbant" bikes where they sit down, and the foot print of the bike from left to right tire is like 3' across.  Riding in a curvy traffic lane with no bike lane at all.  So I might be a little touchy about it.
I am also a cyclist, but I would never dream of riding along that mountain road.

I have to disagree with you dolphkhan,  they race down our hill  (well, ride/coast/whatever) in sponsered events complete with temporary stations set up along the route at a speed close to the speed of the autos, and the road has never (and I say this as I drive this road daily) NEVER blocked it off.

I like the cyclists, they ride past my house, I give them water when they ask, and on the road, we tolerate each other.

Oh lawd, I don't know why some cyclists insist on riding down really obviously dangerous roads. But I guess every group has its morons.

The two-lane road I used to live on had quite a few blind bends on it, and I learned quickly to take those bends easy after I nearly hit a retard jogging in the middle of my lane (joggers have their morons too apparently). Some weekends I would see a fairly large group of cyclists going by. No less than 50 people. And mostly clumped together, taking up the whole road. Eventually someone is going to plow right into them, if they haven't already, it's a miracle.

Oh and the ones who just had to ride on the two-lane extremely busy road during rush hour despite the road being right next to a goddamned huge park full of bike trails. That one still makes my brain hurt. There were so many almost wrecks with people trying to swerve around those assholes (who naturally had to ride side by side). What compels someone to do something so dumb?
 
2013-11-11 11:30:41 PM
Damn, BoatKrazi. I hope the event sponsors have really good insurance. I've been stupid a couple two three times, but the older I get, the less reckless I've become. Damn, I kind of miss the reckless jackass I was.
 
2013-11-11 11:31:55 PM
Well, I KNOW why they ride it - the countryside is really beautiful, and the uphills are a real challange.
Another element are the ricky racers in their Mom's BMW who also think it's a roadcourse.  Put bikes and inexperienced drivers on the same road and I'm afraid someone's going to die before they do anything about it.

No. On the bike paths there, there are only bicycles because I watched. Not like I care to make things up to make a stranger look bad. The riders had nothing blocking their way, there just bicyclists who aren't considerate.

I bicycle with traffic, in the road. The sidewalks are for pedestrians but if I do need to use the sidewalk, I act considerate.

Even the guy who dusts off his bike once a year might be called a cyclist if that's what he likes to be called. I'm just giving you $#!+.

Look at it this way; those folks who are riding those roads you refuse to ride are making it easier for you to ride where you do by making cycling more mainstream and acceptable. The more of us who do it, the more accepted it will be as a legitimate form of transportation, and recreation.

There are a lot of those single lane back roads here in Humboldt where there really is only one lane for both directions of travel. I ride 'em all. They're the best too. Most motorists drive slowly and carefully because they know if they fark up, they go off into oblivion. There's a reason single vehicle mishaps are the biggest cause of motor vehicle related fatalities here.

Oh yeah, and traffic density: while on one of my favorite fifty mile road rides I might see half a dozen cars over a twenty-five mile stretch on a busy Sunday morning. The other twenty-five miles I'll see a few dozen.

I'd say, do you average more than 75 miles a week over the course of a year?

If not, you like to ride. If so, you're starting to qualify.

I like to ride. I don't call myself a cyclist.
 
2013-11-11 11:47:38 PM
I actually have less trust for drivers than cyclists, so when I ride on weekends, my favorite course has sidewalks AND bikepaths, and even then, if the sidewalk's empty, (which it usually is) I use that just to keep a little further away from drivers who are too busy texting.
