Well I was coming down a hill at a good clip in the bike lane the traffic was heavy. these two bone heads come flying out of the side street on the right and the second guy makes a wide birth and are coming at me yeah they are riding against traffic. Luckily I had enough time to react but made me mad enough to tell them both that they are riding in the wrong direction. they did not say any thing back to me. But I don't care. So do any of you have this problem?

Yes. It's a pet peeve.

Seems to be mainly done by bums, winos and art students.
