Dumb BMXr

While on my ride today i was at 16 miles of my 22 mile ride clipping along at around 20 mph. up ahead i see 3 kids (16-17 yo) on the sidewalk one on a bmx. As I approach the kid on the BMX decides he is going to bunny hop into my lane on the road causing me to aviod and almost putting me into a car then bunny hops back onto the sidewalk.

then he proceeds to ride on in the oppisite direction of me.

I spin around (note to BMXers you cannot outrun road bikes)

I have few choice word with the kid.
I ask him if he has any other tricks to show me because i am really interested. kid has no helmet.
he tells me he hit a rock and fell into my lane.
he is trying to back away from me falls off the curb and almost into a car.
I tell him it's karma.,that's why you wear helmets. Get a helmet and ride on the road.

Moral of the story...

You use your bike as a weapon don't be surprised when someone retaliates.

I used to train at a dojo. we used swords and shurikens and other fun objects. ninjutsu is so much fun! I ride a bmx bike as part of my... fun times. moral of the story, never underestimate a kid on a bmx bike

All us bmxers know you roadies are real tough guys already. You have to be to wear spandex pants and hang your ass out for thousands of passerby's to see.

I can't think of a single bmx rider that isn't absolutely terrified of being alone with a roadie.

Come try that to me and you'd have a spandex wedgie all the way to the back of your teeth.

You say that like bmx is only thing most of us do. My friend and I do all three road, mtb, and bmx. Just so you know 90% of the bmxers I've seen wear girl tight pants and have their asses hanging out anyways.

PS I'm not terrified of being alone roadie.
