The Spandex Menace 

I'm so tired of road bikers. They holler "Share the road," but when they ride in their little packs the last thing they care about

I'm so tired of road bikers. They holler "Share the road," but when they ride in their little packs the last thing they care about is sharing.

You bikers ride six or seven deep across the middle of the road, completely blocking traffic. We are forced to swerve into on coming traffic to avoid you. If we honk, you laugh. Some of us have things to do and places to be. Sorry if that interferes with your leisure time, but please shows some consideration to what the roads are primarily for: cars.


I can't believe you are so arrogant that it brings most of you happiness when you see that it pisses people off. I wish that there were laws on this. The roads are for cars first. I'm not allowed to drive side by side with a buddy, so why should it be different for you? After all it's gas taxes that pay for our roads.

The worst part of it is that it is only the beginning - summer isn't here yet. Get a mountain bike and get off the roads. You are a danger to all, and so is your Spandex.

Over it,

Alex
