If you got this far, then we know that dildos is not bad enough to be a forbidden term. (But, Joe, you can change it to "Wankers" if you think appropriate).
Anyway, dildos, wankers, whatever - you know what I mean; stupid unthinking bicyclists.
The other day, there was a big discussion at work about how bicyclists are dangerous for everybody because they don't follow traffic laws. They zip in and around traffic. They don't observe traffic lights, they sometimes act as a pedestrian and sometimes like a motorists. They don't ride straight lines.
Naturally, they were pointing their frustration at ME ! I am not an road offender, but to them, I represent bicyclists at large.
Honestly, though, as much as we rant about automobile drivers, bicyclists are worse. Many people who ride bikes are not really bicyclists in my opinion. They are just people who experience the freedom and elation of bicycling and they abandon common sense on the road. Last week I actually had two near crashes with kids on bikes - my bike crashing with theirs! I love kids and am glad I was on a bike and not in a car.
Let's bear this in mind and be good bicycle ambassadors and spread the word about safe bicycling.
If you have any suggestions for spreading the word and making the amature bicyclist better road semaritans, please post your ideas here.
