    Thanks be, I keep my own counsel and am too old and ornery to give much of a hoot what someone thinks, lol.

    If they're bearing down on me with 4000 lbs of steel it's a different matter.

    i have a few hard core bicyclist friends that ride race bikes in spandex ,
    they stay out of the way of cars and are the most polite and down to earth people you will ever meet , i watch out for everyone no matter what i drive , i seriously question the stupidity it takes to challenge a car with a bike , those bikers have some screws loose , on the other hand if i am riding my bike out of their way and they nearly run me over with their penitentiary sweat box i can get really irate ,really quick.

    lots of people are just insane on the road these days , i am highly impressed with how many idiots abound ...

    If it's so against the law to ride on the sidewalk, why did the federal gubberment spend billions of $$$ putting bicycle ramps at all the corners officer?

    When I'm pedaling my bike(no motor) in my town, i always try to stay on the road, but cagers for the most part have little or no respect for me... And I end up on the side walk. It's frustrating and I feel that my town needs to educate drivers on properly passing bicyclists. I am moving to Missoula at the end of July and I can't wait because they have bike lanes and bicycles are more of a frequency there. Here in Great Falls, I feel drivers see bikers as a nuisance that need a car... I have a car, but I choose to ride my bike as much as possible for the fun of it, but also for economic and environmental reasons. I don't like feeling like a nuisance. And it's illegal and dangerous to be on sidewalk. And spandex should be illegal too. Lol. Sorry spandexers, nothing personal...
