I understand that there are laws against riding on the sidewalk.
I acknowledge the fact that biking is, in fact, better for the environment than gas-guzzling SUVs.
I am even willing to look past the fact that those yellow spandex wanna-be-Lance-Armstrong biker shorts that you’re wearing look ridiculous.
The fact of the matter is, YOU’RE BLOCKING THE ROAD. No matter how good of shape you might be in, you will never go as fast as the cars around you. Therefore, you are a hindrance to the flow of traffic. In fact, most of the time you’re a danger to yourself and those driving around you.
And while I’m on it, if you ARE a biker in the road, then you had better be following traffic rules like the rest of us, mister. No Turn On Red means NO FREAKING TURN ON RED EVER. That stop sign ain’t just for show. And if I can’t weave in and out of cars on a one-lane street, neither can you.
Two measly wheels and a handlebar do not qualify you for superhero status.
So, do us all a favor, and save the spandex for halloween.
