This is just weirdly orthogonal to the argument. Of course there are other people on the road who you have to share that space with. What no one is obliged to share is a conversation they didn't ask...

100% endorse. Except that I am a bad person and will start deliberately riding over manhole covers, potholes, etc if I'm in a bad mood. I am not required to indulge some stranger's desire for social...

You can represent your weird, desperate behavior with whatever words you like. Even a misquote of mine, if that makes you feel like you've won something. That seems like it's pretty important to you?

Fair.

If I can leave it at one point: it's not about money. It's about respect. My friend Lydia has done the work to survey a majority of the women actively racing in New England to ask them some...

Sorry. I'm still salty about my friends being effectively given the middle finger on the start line. I think some anger is justified. This isn't an abstract issue. This causes people real emotional...

Only 2 more things to add on this.
