    The comic strip bothers me a bit less than the comments that follow. Typical though. I mean, we might delay someone by 20 seconds on their way to the McDonald's drive through. (Note I'm going with the all non-cyclists are fat and lazy generalization).

    I like Pastis...he dings everyone!
    Before hitting "Enter" or "Send" ask yourself: Is this true? Is this kind? Is this NECESSARY?
    I once had a Colnago/Campy bike built in Italy...then life caught up with me!
    Now I ride a Schwinn Beach cruiser to work!

    I think it's pretty funny, myself. It's parody similar to that "**** Roadies Say" video.

    I wanted context before agreeing. I checked the last few strips before, in context is is funny.

    Some of the comments are still disturbing.

    Accurate portrayal of many cyclists. Keep pushing and you're going to get that remark.

    I think it's more funny that there's bacon on the pig's plate. CANNIBAL!

    I care less about the comments (web comments are scary by default people!). If you can't tell me that's a very good comic portrayal of a serious cyclist.. then I don't think I want to talk to you. FYI, the rat is an ASSHAT always... so where the heck is this anti-cyclist bit coming from?

    +1 on the "meh" comment.

    I smell a writer who's run dry of ideas trying to be controversial in order to get some attention.

    Closer to the truth than you know. Trial starts soon.

    It's not like it's the first time he's poked fun at cyclists. For example, this one was pure gold.

    People should read the road forum before they make pronouncements about what they think might be in there.

I wish we could make such declarations part of the licensing procedure so that they could be locked up after one incident.

    It's amazing how much less dead the victims are, if the driver who killed them was sober.

    Sorry, I still have a hang up over the cyclist who was run down in broad daylight in the hills northwest of Salem a couple of weeks ago. I doubt the driver will be charged with anything.

    Spandex hamsters can be more embarassing than the self ingratiating cagers they piss off. I'm sorry to say.

    I know that is a joke... but there is a spot on my commute is it sadly true, and people are willing to damn near hit you to get to it! This would be NB Murphy Canyon Road just south of Aero Drive in San Diego.
    Finally riding again after my accident in Dec 2011.
