    I thought it was only cyclists and drivers that were throwing insults like that at each other.

    “Hey, you got mud on my bike!”
    “Well, you got… um… on my… um… You got chicken legs!”

    It’s only the drivers that throw insults like that at cyclists. The cyclists are simply asking for their rights. Anyhow, you wanna hear some trash talk? Go to a skatepark and mention in-line skates. Bad blood there.

    The right to ride on pavements, knocking people aside…the right to suddenly swerve in front of a car; the right to ride at night without lights.
    .
    No I’m not a driver, but the laws are meant to apply to everyone. I’m not normally like this but only ten minutes ago on my way back from the shop, two cyclists forced me into the mud when they decided the pavement was theirs and no one elses. An exception maybe, but not an isolated one.

    I’m with you. Pedal bikers are a-holes.

    I have no problems with cyclists’ rights, its just that said rights should come with some responsibilities. Its hard to respect some clown riding in the dark without lights.

    Personally, I’m fed up with joggers and cyclists. Both refuse to obey the rules of the road and common courtesy. As to pavement riders, it depends on a variety of factors. Age of cyclist, roads an bike paths. Where I live, we have designated bike paths, some of which are on sidewalks because there is no room on the street for a car and a bike to be safely on the road together or it’s a very busy road with minimal foot traffic. And I won’t even start in on joggers. If everyone followed the simple rules of being courteous to others then it will work.

    When you have cars parked illegally on pavements and cyclists on pavements, what chance does the pedestrian have? Especially women with push chairs, etc

    or at least reflective stripes on their clothes. I have my dad flight line parka it has tape all over it. when it’s dark or snowy you want the big hard metal things to be able to see you.

    Yeah, it’s a shame that many cyclists and joggers drive like everyone else does. If they didn’t drive, maybe they wouldn’t pick up bad habits…

    Ohhhhh…. RANT time!! Goodie! First the primer: In my province the laws/bylaws & road reg are very clear
    - cyclists must follow all the rules of the road
    - must follow the flow of traffic
    - wear reflective gear or provide both a light in the front and a reflector on the rear of the bike for use at night.
    - are not permitted to ride the bike on the sidewalk or in crosswalks.
    - must wear helmets
    *************************
    Which means cyclists are to obey the stop signs and traffic lights. Are not suppose to run over pedestrians.
    .
    I can hear a skateboarder coming up behind me on the sidewalk. And I trust the skateboarder to stop or change direction as needed in an emergency. I don’t trust a cyclist to do so…… Especially one night when I realized I forgot something and turned around to go home and not only crashed into the cyclist roaring down the sidewalk, but ended up with him falling into the wall of the nearest building. He was lucky he wasn’t on the street side of me.
    .
    I am tired of cyclists ignoring stop signs. Of blasting through red lights. of running over me and others when riding up onto sidewalks. Of the ‘little wave of the hand’ when I or others are in their way on the sidewalk. BTW – I don’t move out of the way.
    .
    After all. I am on the sidewalk. Where I should be. The cyclist should be on the road. Not the sidewalk.
    /
    OK. Rant over. I feel better.

    You know what the problem is? “Peoples… is peoples.” There you go. Muppet philosophy.

    I have nothing against cyclists on the road, just put a motor on it, or get the frack out of my way.
