    What happens next?



    A. POB's crash into each other
    B. Officer effectively pogans all four at once
    C. POB's are ignored by officer, road cyclist arrested for riding in the road
    D. Child ticketed for not having a flashing rear light
    E. Roadie speeds past at a glimmering 400w
    F. Media glorifies the male rider on the Wal-Mart mountainbike - the one with the helmet cocked too far back on his head.

    These are only suggestions. Post what you think will happen next.

    Officer isn't in the parked cruiser. Roadie takes the inside line and everyone goes about their day.

    Driver comes around the corner, while texting, and wipes everyone out. Police cite driver for failure to yield and driver moves on.

    Aren't they going the wrong way? Or is the yellow line on the wrong side of the road? Or is this not a road?

    G. The police car is left empty, but running, with the keys in the ignition. The rider on the mountain bike with the helmet that doesn't fit steals the police car and drives off, then plays Super Troopers.

    Bek will post about avoiding this by having more infrastructure......

    or is it infrastructure? it almost looks like roads closed for biking.......which may explain the police car in the left lane with flashers on

    The man on the mountain bike hits the curb and flies over the handlebars. The roadie goes home and posts about it on bike forums.

    "Mom" rides up along side mis-fitting helmet "Dad" and raps him upside the head for checking out the bikini girl just out of view on the sidewalk. Even though this forces the helmet over his eyes and causes him to crash, the helmet "Saved His Life"!

    Both will log onto BF tonight. The family group will ask why the roadie didn't wave and the roadie will ask why the family didn't move out of his way, then ask what wheelset he should buy so people will hear him coasting towards them.

    Roadie, flush your Campagnolo cassette. It'll screech like the devil.

    (To which he will reply that flushing his existing one will not be good enough).

    ILTB will post that we're all bastards for daring to judge parents who are teaching their kids to ride the wrong way up the middle of a road around a blind corner - can't we all just leave people alone and let them do what they want?

    Maybe "we" can start by letting ILTB do what he wants?
