If you're littering while biking, knock it off. If not, why are you offended by the OP? I haven't witnessed this kind of littering, but that doesn't mean it isn't happening.

I really don't get the relevance of the beer can thing. Is that whataboutism, or is it two wrongs make a right?
It was his inflammatory tone, and his assumption that all of us “snobs” are the reason his wife crashed and his roads are littered.

Seems like folks love to put roadies down on this forum, and hold this sanctimonious attitude like their crap doesn’t stink. These are usually the same people shouting “steal is real!” and going on about how they just love their friction shifters and cantilever brakes.

We all have our preferences and tastes, yet it seems like roadies get trashed for theirs.
