Why I hate bikes, bicyclists, and their stupid bike lanes

SEE???? This is the reason why bicycles and bicyclists need to be licensed a f held responsible for the laws that other operators of vehicles are required to be responsible for!!!

Bike Lanes my ass!


Cyclists need protected bike lanes, so that they don’t have to resort to riding on the sidewalks to avoid being run over and killed.


Over 2,500 bicyclists were killed or seriously injured last year–NY Times story. Here we have a result of “runner’s high” the effect of high intensity exercise results is an euphoria that deflects consequential thinking (so-called “higher order reasoning”). Bikers are a danger to themselves and others.
Assault by bike should be classified and crime stats taken, along with vigorous law enforcement.


inb4 everyone calls for a crusade against bicyclists because of this.
(This obviously sucks for the woman and he should be caught and punished)

If this bicycle was licensed, registered, insured and had license plates, the rider could be identified. Disgusting! Hope the poor woman recovers quickly.

I agree.

PS all you downvoters… It looks like we now have 14 suspects in this. Think about that. A disagree is an agree for the criminal side.
