We need a forum wherein we can ***** about other cyclists. Like the guy who came flying off of a one-way (going the wrong way, I might add) and right into the middle of traffic last night. He was on a Bianchi road bike, decked out in all the latest gear but he failed to look when he came onto the busy street and cut off 2 cyclists and one car. Unbelievable, I really thought he was going to get smoked by that car.
Or howabout the roadie last week who walked his Concorde into the bike lane, hopped on, had a few problems with his shoes which took a couple of tries to get clicked in and then slowly start up....he didn't look around him at all, just assumed that all us other cyclists would stop for him. Luckily, I saw him coming and veered around a couple of cars and avoided the whole thing altogethers, but wow, it was annoying to watch.
Whenever I asked how I manage to fly through traffic every day, all year round and not get hit by a car, I always tell the person asking that it isn't usually the cars that worry me, it is other cyclists
We totally need that forum. My last accident, a faceplant into a set of construction barrels, was caused by some mountain bike commando who forced me off the road and didn't even look back. I was so mad. I was literally spitting blood and throwing construction cones around. It was awesome.
