    The OP - for posting this tidbit/snippet.

    What is anyone supposed to do/say about it? Oh My? Tsk, Tsk? I told you so? or what?

    Just when I thought it was safe to read threads in A&S again...
    Every time we let a vehicle pass there is a little bit of compromise. But compromise allows the city to function and allows cyclists to function in the city. The trick is not to eliminate compromise but to learn how to work safely within it.

    Given the subject line, I was thinking of something more like this:

    Don't pay him any attention. He is just an old disgruntled old cyclist who disagrees with the LAB & Forester & has issues with those who are their followers or believe in them. And he will not work in a positive manner to effect change. He'd rather bith, moan & whine from a soap box & insult people he does not like because they suggested ideas to him for effecting change instead of fighting against the system as it is.

    Yada, yada, yada. How many more useless/uninformative snippets do you plan to cut and paste into BF for trolling purposes and call "working in a positive manner for change"?

    While I have tried not to stoop down to ILTB's level of ad hominem attacks and nonproductive comments, I, for one, have to admit that I'm enjoying N_C's ventures down there.

    Sorry if it was unclear to you, but I was responding to you. In the meantime, I'll just smirk...

    No, perfectly clear. Any thread that has N_C and HH doing electronic high fives has to be a real stinker; and one that is right up your alley. Enjoy!

    The asspipe who went out of his way to hit a cyclist on the sidewalk.

    This is perhaps one of the most pointless and moronic threads I have seen in a while. Thank you for yet another pointless waste of time.

    Do please continue the amusing insults and cut ups.

    Did I state I was working in a positive manner for change? No. I just posted this for information purposes. Just like anyone else would post a link to a story about something similar here.

    Boy did this one fly way over your head with out leaving a mark. I culd just imagine your reaction. I visualize it as being "What the **** was that?" As it flys overhead & you duck & turn to look.

    One senses that there is big chunk of information omitted from this story. As written, there are no conclusions that can be drawn regarding the relative safety of sidewalk cycling.
    Cars kill 45,000 Americans every year.
    This is like losing a war every year, except without the parades.
