    What's the difference between what the cyclist was doing and someone sitting on your car while parked?
    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.

    I laughed!

    Yeah, it's not all that cool to hold on to people's cars for balance.. sure they're not respecting you sometimes, but you still need to respect their property.

    That one has been out for quite a while, but it's still hilarious. Good way to deal with a JAC.

    I nearly fell over while stopped earlier today, and ended up having to do that to stop my fall.. Whoops.

    Other than that, I avoid touching cars, as I prefer they don't touch me

    I would have done the same. You DON'T rest your hand on a car at a stoplight. You clip out and put your damn foot down.

    ^ True, but a month ago i was carrying a wheel i bought attached to my backpack, and getting off and on the seat was really uncomfortable. At one intersection i leaned and held to a van, hopefully the driver didn't mind.

    Get a nice new car, and you don't want anyone touching it. With the car I drive, I would think that was odd, but wouldn't bother me in the least.

    Resting yourself against a car is a no no in my books but I feel that rapping on the ones that comes to close is perfectly fine.

    That cracked me up. I don't even let people lean against my car -- the black paint shows every little scratch they put on it (rivets on jeans, especially).

    Thought I'd add that I've seen drivers call out to cyclists at a light "Hey, lean on the car if you want. I don't mind" THEN, it's OK, and I'd do it myself.

    Please tell me you don't lean on random cars. Either way, even if you can trackstand forever it sends the message that you are stopped if you put a foot down. In abrupt stop and go traffic, I can see it being inconvenient, maybe, but when is anything convenient?

    I don't lean on cars. Unless you count crashing into them when they cut me off.

    I just prefer not to clip out, and since there is no law requiring it, I'm not going to.
