I do not get upset when people yell at me from cars or tell me to get off the road. Many have had bad experiences with cyclists...
Case in point, there are a large number of cyclists that ruin it for the rest of us. Its kinda like the general population, there are smart people but alot just dont have much going on upstairs.
I have a great story to tell... I am an avid cyclist as well as an auto enthusiast, and this past weekend was the woodward dream cruise in suburban detroit. The largest carshow / cruise in the world. Its great, lots of car that many people put significant amount of time and money into. Its a 4 lane road each way and the right 2 lanes are 'cruising lanes', which means you average about 5-6mph and people are sitting on the curb watching cars go by. (this event is about 10 miles long)
Then cue the idiot cyclists. many were going the wrong way trying to squeeze between the expensive cars and the curb/people. Running red lights. weaving around. I even saw one guy try to squeeze into a space far to small and had to put his hand on the side of a classic car to keep himself upright.
Here is an example of the traffic for about 10 miles... and they were squeezing between the right lane and the curb. Keep in mind the cyclists were moving much faster than traffic. Alot of these guys put their heart and soul into making the cars perfect... the last thing they need is a cyclist running into the side, scratching it, etc..
But on a lighter note, i did see the coolest multiperson bicycle ever... and they were rolling with traffic and acting like a car. And guess what.. everyone loved it!!!
