    The right hook is the most common conflict with motorists and bicycles, and everyone here experiences it a lot.

    When I first made the transition from a car to a bike, I was unaccustomed to having people f*&k with me and take advantage of my vulnerable (and much slower) position, so when someone did something...

    Okay, so you're saying the driver was wrong, and he made a mistake. You are choosing to "absorb his wrongness" by blaming yourself.

    If a driver is texting his buddy while driving and swerves off to the right and hits:

    A) Your car. Then he is at fault. He's responsible for his mistake. He has to pay the damages.

    I live alone, so I don't normally need to buy a stuffed shopping cart worth of groceries. I bike to the grocery store daily. Gives me an excuse to get a little exercise in every day, and my groceries...

    This is one of the most ridiculous posts I have ever read on this forum. If a drunk driver runs you over and kills you, it's your fault because you chose to ride a bike? Would you say the same to a...

    281 pages of debating, and not a single mind changed. Keep trying. I'm sure it will happen someday.

    I don't get what the "second class service" is? That there are more bikes on the train than usual? How is that significant? Isn't he just going to sit down on a seat until his stop comes?

    Use reverse psychology. Tell him he's not allowed to ride a bike and will be punished if he's caught.
