Sorry, but ride on the ******* sidewalk or learn to mountain bike. I don't buy this Share The Road horseshit. Roads were built for cars. Go to cycling class at the Y if you want to get some exercise and aren't coordinated enough to ride a trail. We're using the roads because we have to, not because we can't exercise like real men with weights and basketballs.
I encourage all people to throw bottles and rocks at bikers at any chance they get. I like to pull up next to them as closely as possible and yell and blare the horn until they fall over. I also wish testicular cancer on anyone who wears spandex.
they are worse than bikes
I bike to work and back 4 days a week plus Saturday and manage to do so without delaying traffic and without any idiots like you f**ker's daring to flip me off and then have my fat ass catch up to you at the next red light. I average 27mph on my road bike and 15 on my mountain bike. It takes me 13 minutes to drive and 22 minutes to bike. I don't have to waste my time at a gym and I get the satisfaction of breaking a sweat twice a day. Something you pasty internet warriors may want to try out. Or you can just save up all your inner dislike for when you get home and can kick the neighbors dog when no one is looking.
But don't get me started on loser scooters.
some are carbon fiber and weigh around 5 lbs
No one actually wants your friend to be dead, but bikes aren't meant for high-traffic roads. You take a major risk riding a 14 lb. aluminum contraption amongst a bunch of 1.5 ton automobiles during rush hour. Not that he was, but that's really what most of us are complaining about.
