What is it with people that bicycle in heavy traffic?
Each day I see people bicycling down the middle of a busy 4 lane roads. People driving cant even see a big vehicle in the middle of the road much less a person on a tiny bicycle. Exercise is great, but why do it in heavy traffic with tights on.

Re: What is it with people that bicycle in heavy traffic?
Its some kind of ego driven, death wish.. I always see idiots ridding their bikes in the street when a sidewalk is available, turning with traffic, headlights, helmets, rear lights etc.. If you ever ask them about it, they will become rantingly passionate of how bikers have the right of way, laws, etc... Shit.. But try lecturing bikers rights to a semi-trucks 18 wheels, and I know who'll win..

The sidewalk is for pedestrians, not bicycles. Bicycles belong on the road, except where prohibited, like the interstate.

The "ego driven" are the ones in the cars and trucks who think they own the road and have the right to harass or intimidate bicyclists or other drivers.

"Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?" -George Carlin

Actually, we don't have a death wish, we don't have the money for a car.
And yes, the law says we have to ride on the road, not the side walk.
I do everything in my power to stay to the outside, but, with the way some people park, and construction, and people leaving signs out in the road, I guarantee you that I am praying every moment I'm out there.
And with 20% unemployment, and rising, in California, I'll bet that some of you good people will be out there with me soon.

Anyone driving who cant see a cyclist shouldnt be fracking driving in the first place...its called driving with DUE CARE AND ATTENTION, and if drivers cant be assed watching whats going on around them take their cars off them and make them walk. FFS I bet more than half the cars are full of fatties munching candy bars chatting on cell phones and not looking whats going on around them.
BAN the cars and make everyone cycle...problem solved

Re: What is it with people that bicycle in heavy traffic?
where I live they added bike lanes because triathaletes like training in the area. Do you think they use the lanes my taxes paid for? Hell no. They won't even ride single file. Two and three abreast. Blocking traffic on a hilly, winding, dangerous road. They absolutely take over the roads on weekends by the hundreds. Then they get peeved when we "ruin" their downhill desent just because we want to get home by turning into our driveway.
