Well, I had to come in to work today. I've just been actually doing what they pay me to do instead of reading the forums
I've seen about all the bad things riders can do, I think. The ones I hate the most are the ones that come in too close to me for comfort. Maybe they're used to pack riding or something, but I like my space. Sometimes I have to swerve to miss things in the road and I can't do that if there's someone in the way. Most of the time they don't even say anything; they just fly on by like their a** were on fire.
The other thing that I see almost every day that ticks me off are the riders along Alaskan Way that use the MUP because they think that riding on that excuses them from having to stop at the lights. The MUP crosses over the same crossroads that Alaskan does and is governed by walk/don't walk lights. In fact, you're actually more likely to be hit on the MUP since cagers on the cross streets aren't looking for bikes that far back. Nevertheless, dozens of bikes every day cross over to the MUP and speed right on through the don't walk lights like they weren't there.
The stupidest ones I've seen are the ones that go around a railroad crossing guard because the train isn't *quite* here yet. If they fell or had a chain break or snagged their clothes or pretty much anything, they'd be toast.
All we can do is ride our best. Obey the laws and respect the power of the cagers to kill you, even if they're not trying. It only takes a fraction of a second and a single bad decision to take your life.
