Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

God like Cyclists.

I think it's making light of the elitist attitude that is often saddled with road cyclists.

great lets pick on the cocky cyclists and take down all the other humble ones at the same time. These comics just add more fuel to the fire of ignorant motorists.

A cocky cyclist is far less dangerous than a cocky motorist with a big truck and small man parts.

I like those comics, they're funny...the bit about getting run over hits a little too close to home for me to laugh, however.

Pearls before swine the "fundie" comic. I find it to not be particularly creative.

Moderately humorous until the "running down" part. And that was only distasteful because this cartoon strip/series tends to cater to a certain demographic that actually harbors such sentiments. And I think you know who I'm talking about, and what bumper stickers they'll have plastered on their large vehicles.

Oh; and lot's of them are fat. Fat, fat, fat.
