Default Re: ignorant drivers thread !!!!

When I say I don't like to go faster than 20 I mean it. Not because the bike is unstable or no capable, but because the cars are not expecting you to be going 20 let alone 30.

Even though most of the roads here have nice bike lanes where I don't have to worry about being run down there are still lots of cross streets and left turn lanes.

Even if they see you coming they are not expecting you to be going 30 and will turn or pull out right in front of you because they think they have enough time. You know, because bikes do 10 to 15.

So I don't like going fast and am a life member of the "20 MPH Club"
