    Not really. Golfers usually don’t ignore stop signs, ride on the left side, run into people, etc. (I biked from 1982 to 2000. I was almost alone among bikers in that I obeyed the traffic laws and remembered that there were other people on the road.)

    @ Mr. Nabuquduriuzhur…I’m sorry you have had such bad experiences with cyclists who do not obey vehicular law. On the other hand, what about all the CAR DRIVERS about which one could say the same thing?! I live in a fairly bike friendly state but even here, car drivers get away with murder if they hit a bicyclist—even when the bicyclist is obeying road rules.

    Football, too. About the only thing that will get football players off the field is lightning.
    On the other hand, are bicyclists using adult language every few minutes?
    Remember, golf is a four-letter word that usually results in other four-letter words!

    N, P & T: it is just a fact of life that when bicycle riders (who tend to travel 10-30 mph and for whom every joule of kinetic energy comes at great cost) and car drivers (who tend to travel 30-and-up, and for whom a stop-and-restart is just a couple light taps of the pedal) share the same roads, they will create a Mutual Annoyance Society. Not much different from bicycle riders sharing a “recreational path” with joggers and baby-carriage-pushers. It’s life. Whining about it on the internet isn’t going to change it.

    But being compared to a golfer… now them’s fightin’ words…

    I do ride, mostly on dirt roads with my dog, and don’t play golf, but I did learn to appreciate the game from my late husband and enjoyed going to occassional tournaments (before the Tiger madness took over). Golf courses are certainly more interesting than football fields or tennis courts.

    The Masters got rained on last year. I felt bad for ’em. Well, not that bad…

    One main difference, a lot of golfers can make good money doing it as a job, very few cyclists make a dime.

    Runners will run in the rain more often than bikers will bike in the rain. For me its a safety thing. Too easy to wipe out on a road bike on wet roads. Scary enough out there.

    Try highway 4 in New Mexico. 4 Circles the Los Alamos National Lab and there is an active cyclist community. I had to deal with these people for 25 years and their major feature is a dramatic loss of IQ, common sense and good manners when there are more than two on the road together. The good news is the auto/truck drivers haven’t resorted to road rage.

    What is it that makes the comparison cringe-worthy? If Frazz and Plainwell (and, presumably, Mallett) can’t picture themselves ever enjoying the game, well, okay. As it’s written, though, their beef seems not to be with golf, but with the players themselves.
    Either way, who in the world thinks that way? I thought these people were supposed to be so wonderful and enlightened. Looks to me as if they carry the same mean-spirited prejudices as the average bigot.

    Considering my experience, If I were Frazz in that situation I wouldn’t be able to resist checking Mr. Spaetzle’s coffee cup.
