Thanks!
I was out driving this morning, (getting 10 MPG) and I didn't see any cyclists. Maybe because it's 20 degrees and the roads are covered with snow & ice. Would you be out on your bike today?
Also, no toll roads in my state and I have no idea what a 'peak traffic hour fine' is. Can you please explain?

I don't know/care what you're worked up about, but I think the number of times a bicycle would have saved me from a toll road is pretty close to zero.

True.
I can't even remember the last time I paid a toll. Maybe 1994, when I lived in New York?

I don't know/care what smug, douchebag cyclist asshat is on about either, but I'm also fairly certain that a bicycle has never, ever saved me from a traffic fine, peak hour or otherwise.  Because I've never had one, even in my truly humongous combustible polluter.

The real problem is cyclists. It's so true.

Many people ride bikes. Cyclists define their lives by this trivial fact. In Asia, a thousand times as many people use bicycles in their daily life. They don't wear faux racing suits, buy titanium-carbon fiber fixed gears for the 3km jaunt to work, or expect cars to get out of their way. And lo and behold, no one has cyclist rage.

In the Americas people who ride bicycles are fine, too, but "cyclists" so annoying that when one gets hit by a car everyone's first reaction "What law was he breaking?" They damage cars, cause traffic, and bleed all over the nice, almost clean asphalt. The difference? Their attitude.

If you could just ride a bike when you want to and drive a car when you want to and remember today's drivers will be on bikes tomorrow when you're driving, you wouldn't act the fool. Be a bike rider, not a cyclist.
 
2013-12-08 07:08:31 PM  

sprgrss: Why wasn't the road shut down?


It probably was.  A bicycle is small and nimble enough that a cyclist can get around barricades pretty easily, and cyclists don't always feel the need to obey these things.

He's in the ER. There was a smallish pebble and a bit of dust on the road he was on... farkin city didn't sweep it clean and micro-patch the pavement and he took a header when his 2mm of tire contact patch didn't hook up through it. He was busy making sure he was in the "clean" lane of traffic in front of a line of cars instead of in the dirty bike lane. But he'll show you just as soon as he can type again.

Like in every other case on the planet, you can be the stereotype, or you can be normal and not a dickwad.  It's just that the cyclist stereotype is just chock full of entitlement and smug.

Last time for me was a toll road to circumvent a ton of traffic. Cut the travel time down by 20 minutes which was worth way more than the dollar or so I spent.

Strangely enough, you don't see many cyclists on it. I don't know if it's because those fancy skintight bodycondoms don't leave much room for a wallet, or because the road itself is a giant goddamn hill, but it's nice to have so much room.

Bike rider =/= cyclist

Here's the thing- people who define their lives by an activity tend to be shallow, boring douches. I don't care if it's riding a bicycle, gaming or listening to a certain kind of music- if you define yourself by it, people will hate you.

I've heard of bus-only streets, I just didn't understand the way he phrased it.
I left New York before all that started there and we never had those in Denver, San Jose or San Francisco. Now I live in Nevada, where pretty much anything goes. I don't even have to have my vehicles smog-checked. If I wanted to throw away my catalytic converter and muffler, they wouldn't care.

I commuted by bicycle for over a decade.

That said, it's -7 degrees here right now, with freezing wind and snow flurries. You're f♥cking crazy if you think I'm riding my bike anywhere for the next four months.

And after that, I'll still be in my vehicle because there's no way I can do my job-- which involves commuting halfway across the state frequently-- with a bike.

THIS. ALL THIS.

I was a bike commuter. I rode my bike wearing my work clothes or jeans and a t-shirt. I did not dress in a cute little fake racing costume. I didn't put more money into my bike than my home. I didn't weave in and out of traffic, pretending I was invulnerable.

And as a bike commuter, I can say those asshole cyclists made my life a lot harder. People would get pissed off at THEM being assholes, and they would take it out on ME just trying not to get splattered on my way to work.

So honestly: F♥ck cyclists. They're the worst possible people to represent travel on two wheels.

I have never heard of it before, but Wikipedia was helpful. Near as I can tell, it's in use currently in a handful of cities (London, Milan, Stockholm and Singapore), but seems like it's either being, or was being, tested in a couple areas of the US. The article wasn't very clear on that. NYC rejected it outright back in 2008.

ZeroCorpse: Come to Michigan and tell me how the fark we're supposed make public transportation work in largely rural, freezing parts of the state that can barely afford to maintain our roads, let alone fund a decent public transit system.


Well you'd better think of something. Otherwise, it's going to be impossible to live there unless you're rich or stupidly too poor to move out of there.

In short: Don't blame me for driving an internal combustion vehicle to work. I'm stuck with the infrastructure and facilities presented to me. There's no way in hell I'm riding my bike in December weather, and there's no way I can get myself over 100 miles in a day AND do my job with a goddamned bicycle or city bus.

If it were me, I'd be quitting that job or moving closer to it. Or accepting that it's going to cost you to continue commuting. At any rate, you'd better be supporting mass public transportation in your state and community.

It's cool if you live in a city and can get to your job by riding a few blocks or taking advantage of the city's public transportation resources, but for most of us it is not an option. So stop being an ass about it.

Sorry that you think that criticizing America's "right to drive" mentality and utter loathing for public transportation constitutes "being an ass about it."

You don't have to wear a "uniform." I find the $30 black shorts on sale at performance bike do just as well as the $150 shorts with some corporate logo on them. Not to mention the jerseys with a zillion logos are not nearly as visible as a simple plain fluorescent yellow jersey.
