I have been commuting for the last month everyday (5 days a week). I can honestly say that it has been a blast. I every part of it...nature, speed, exercise, sweat, accomplishment, EXCEPT... sharing the road with the "other" vehicles.
Every day it seems that I get cut off, dirty looks, way too close passes, and the occasional revving of motor when I get passed.
The roads I ride do not have much of a bike path or shoulder to ride which could be the problem, but even when I am comfortably off on the shoulder with plenty of space, vehiclular road rage is present.
I like to think that they are just having a bad day or are jealous that I am not spending $4 / gallon on gas for my commute. I have to admit though its a little irritating receiving this much rage.
Why do they hate us?
