    That is how a group of cyclists are supposed to ride. It would be dangerous if we all strung out in a paceline, so bunching up like that forces drivers to pass us as if we -were a car or a slow-moving vehicle. We have the right to right to use the roads as you do with a car.

    Many of us have GoPros on our handlebars so yuou will be recorded if you try somthing dangerous.

    Re: Asshole cyclists... is there any other kind?

    I've been stuck on Colorado mountain roads with a group of cyclists ahead grunting at very slow speed up the mountain. They wouldn't move over, no matter how many vehicles were stacked up behind them. I won't say what I did about it, but, yeah, cyclists can be assholes. But so can I if need be.

    I have mixed feelings about this. And I used to ride a ton. But I have issues with vehicles that cannot go near the posted speed limit inconveniencing others on the right of way. And 95% of the bikers are doing it recreationally and they are often delaying those traveling to or for work

    If you ride single or even double file a large group of cyclists is now 50yards long and it would still force a passing car to partially cross the centerline.

    I don't ride nearly as much as I did in the 1980s and early 90s when I averaged 2000+ miles a year. There are many cyclists who think that road rules don't apply to them. I've known more than a few people sho should have been awarded Darwin awards for their stupidity and arrogance.

    where I live, the community has put some cycling paths in that are essentially widened sidewalks. several miles away is a bike trail that runs dozens of miles along the little miami river that allows recreational cyclists 60 or so miles of trail (or more-that was the longest I rode it) though there are some street crossings you have to be careful of.

    Just like car drivers, there are clueless clowns riding bikes. Then you have a guy I went to school with-and returned to teach there (my son's favorite teacher) who was out for a ride when a drunk driver drove right through a stoplight and killed him. Or the wife of a guy i once worked with-she and 15 other bikers were out for a ride one summer morning, when some guy who was on a all night coke binge went speeding across a bridge at 75 miles an hour. Amy and another biker had no place to go and both were killed. Her widower was past president of the Cincinnati bar association and I attended the visitation with a federal magistrate (former country judge) and the magistrate said every judge in hamilton county was hoping to get the coke head's case. I think he's still in prison and this was 12 or so years ago.

    If you are going to do that you use a knee against their rear fender to stay in the pedals at a stop light.

    I've been run off the road twice intentionally. I've been shiot at with paintablls on a few occasions. I had one idiot throw a beer bottle just before a stop light at me. Somehow I managed at catch it and I threw it into his open sunroof at the light.
