sorry doc, julia, and kevin,
i just gotta ask...any of you use your bike for regular transportation? just saying that bikers can be annoying, but why are they almost hated?
a few months back, there was a series of radio reports on a pedestrian killed by a biker. i am very frequently almost clipped by drivers. and often flipped off. and pedestrians wander out in front of me, oblivious, all the time, against traffic lights.
i don't get the animus.Show Less
Where can this cab pull over and let me out?
-400+ miles of new bike lanes in the last decade
-Where have all the curbs gone?
-Is it wrong to have less sympathy for folks on CitiBikes?
bike + comatose jaywalkers + competetive fellow cyclists + grumpy drivers with radar set on destroy + the driving practice of treating bike lanes as extra parking zones = one near miss injury/day as i get places on two wheelsShow Less
I didn't try because I was a normal, mentally-healthy, mature, well-socialised individual – which is also to say that I was weak and selfish, more worried about my career than the suffering of others, more concerned with my own comfort and status than the values and standards I was supposed to be upholding.
Time to rethink my place on the planet.Show Less
