    I’m surprised there aren’t more idiots in tights in accidents on the roads !! These CLOWNS ride together in a bunch, they hold up traffic and when they can spread out they stay in the traffic lane and NOT completely in the bike lane.
    So we have a bunch of yuppies that like to get dressed up in $500 tights and sniff eachother’s asses and ride in the roads. When they are on the bike trails they don’t even give you a heads up they are speeding by. They must like flying by and scaring people on the trails. Like I said suprised there aren’t more acidents like this, because these people are accidents waiting to happen !

    Jonesy,

    You’d better get used to more bike friendly roads, the ones with the bike painted across the middle of the road. This means that you are not to pass a single or group riding in the middle of the street until they pull over. I don’t consider myself as a yuppie or a wearer of $500 outfits. That would be more than my bike is worth. Just as there are obnoxious drivers and even hikers, get used to a variety of cyclists sharing the same space. Share it or stay at home.
