My Two Cents

Okay. First, I applaud you for riding a bike. I also applaud you for going on an actual bike ride with other riders and having the guts to wear spandex decades after it was in style.

Here is what I do not applaud: you being stupid, you thinking you are in a car and so have the same rights to the road, you not getting way over onto the shoulder when two cars are passing you, and you trying to go faster up the hill when we both know I can beat you and you should just pull over and let me pass.

Once again, I would like to reiterate that I think bike riding is awesome and you are awesome if you do it, but don’t be stupid and make people in three-thousand pound vehicles put you at risk because you won’t get over on the shoulder. Besides, hitting a bike rider would be messy.
