o.k. i know there's a million threads here about idiots who throw things, shout at us, ect., but one thing they seem to have in common at least with me is that all the people who shout to me to "get off the road," or to "ride on the sidewalk" seem to be just young punks which makes me wonder exactly what these numbnuts are taught in driving school these days. they either are just being rude, or they don't even know that we have a right to the road just like cars. when i went to driving school (1979) one of the first things they taught me is to share the road with bicycles, & to have general courtesy to other motorists & other vehicles. just the other day a young fat girl shouted to me to "get the hell off the road" i'm sure jealousy in addition to stupidity also as a lot to do with idiots like this. when your about 20 years old, a girl & weight 300 pounds you are jealous your not in shape like us cyclists. people like this are miserable, & not happy with themselves. just because they hate themselves, they unleash their venom on the world, & cyclists are easy targets for their harrasement. so all i can say is get a life morons & go back to driving school & learn the rules of the road! p.s. this time, don't flunk the tests!
