"...Get off the f**king road!" That was my first really negative experience commuting this season. I'm in downtown Lansing, mid-morning yesterday. I'm on South Washington headed from the copy shop, past the roundabout at Michigan Ave., going absolutely just as fast as the car just ahead of me, not impeding traffic. Everybody's got to drive slowly there because of the bobtail parking on both sides of the road. Some jack*ff yells at me. Oh, and he's driving crazy, too. Racing up on me, jamming the brakes. Prick.
This is one of only a handful to negative experiences bike commuting I've had in the three years (well, this is the third year). Just thought I'd share. It feels good to rant. You're welcome to do so, too.
