Bicyclists

If you ride a bicycle, unless your under the age of 10, then you should know that as a bicycle rider you are subject to the same traffic laws of people driving cars.  You should also know, but just in case you don’t, people in cars don’t always see you, so you should see them first.

This is for all you that think you can zip through intersections, run traffic lights, run through stop signs, and generally do whatever the hell you want because your on a bike and the people in the cars need to get out of your way.

Grow up, and follow the common sense or at the very least, follow the law.  Yes you look so sexy in your spandex and shaved legs and cool looking helmet, but your pissing everybody off and your going to get hurt, or worse, cause an accident where other people get hurt.

i would like to add that you should ride WITH traffic rather than zooming headlong towards oncoming traffic.  To have a car run up your butt would probably cause less injury than running into one head first

Another comment, as I drive along a popular cyclist route, if you don't think you look good in the bicycling shorts odds are that nobody else does either.  If you insist on wearing them as least wear something over them also.  And ride with your head up and forward, if you are looking down or sideways you will not see the dead raccoon on the road until too late
