    I don't hate bicyclists but I wish they would get the hell out of the way.
    Cyclists have a right to use the road. Again, I try to be a responsible cyclist, but sometimes it is cars that make it difficult to get over to the side of the road ... such as when they illegally double park, forcing me out into the car lane because I don't want to be in the door zone... and you know, there are times when autos are slowing ME down. I was descending down a mountain with two other guys about four weeks ago and we were stuck behind this bus going about 40/45 kph, but we wanted to go MUCH faster...

    I don't mind cyclists like yourself, but it's when a whole group of them go on a major road and lolligag. It seems to be always in heavy traffic and when time is crucial too.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Not particularly impressed with that speed.
    No, i didn't have a point with this. Just making conversation.

    I'll leave it at that, as the rest of my smart ass response might give me points.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    And I live in CO. We got loads of that stuff. And it doesn't need to be particularly straight depending on what you're doing. Here, people on road bikes can routinely do 30 mph on flat roads no problem. They also have no problem doing 20 mph the wrong way through an intersection. Nor do they have a problem going 15 mph uphill 4 abreast.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
