Wish I had some canals to fish in.

I don't ride motorized two-wheelers for exercise. I ride them for recreation.

The purpose of a bicycle is to make the transport of a singular human being easier and more efficient than a self-propelled human being.

To try and morph that into exercise is about the dumbest GD thing a human being could do.

You're right, I'd much rather read another one about the raid. On account of the guys here having the inside scoop and all.

Damn right they do, wherever they want, with earbuds, kids, dogs whatever.

It’s on me as a cyclist on a shared path to make allowances for them, to expect the unexpected.

WTF, I’m out for exercise, speeding back up after clearing them is just part of that, and I’ll slow way down for the next bunch too.

Well, I'll assume that's directed to me.

No sh*t Sherlock. If I didn't make allowances for pedestrians I would've hit a few dozen by now. I just wish they'd show the same courtesy they expect bikers to show when they're driving their automobiles---stay to the right so the faster traffic can pass.

It's not rocket science.
.
Also, the trail I'm talking about is not in a school zone, near a Starbuck's, or an old folks home. It's a pretty well-known 40 mile trail that's heavily traveled by cyclists.

A reasonable assumption but I actually didn’t write it with you in mind.

My opinion is when you’re out walking, you’re out walking and shouldn’t have to be constantly watching your back.

So what if the cyclist has to slow way down, big fuggin’ deal, pedestrians have right of way, it is my responsibility as a cyclist to accommodate most any dumbfuggery on their part.

I ride a lot, have put in 40 mile days on our local hike/bike paths. I find d$ckhead cyclists thinking they’re Lance Armstrong way more irritating than Karens on the path with kids and dogs.

YMMV

I find self-righteous Karen bike riders to be the most annoying of all.

🙂

It doesn’t matter what righteous I am, I go out of my way to accommodate pedestrians. Not sure how that translated to Karen or self-righteous status.

Sorta similar, I put most of my miles in on the road, and in the last eight years have crossed much of this Continent twice, plus a 1,500 mile loop in Europe.

On the road I ride with the attitude that if I get hit it’s ALWAYS gonna be my fault, for riding a bicycle on the road, and try to ride accordingly.

As long as he doesn't abandon the spandex, we'll be OK.

Yes, that's obvious. Let me help you out:

This thread ain't about you, how much you ride, or whether you think it's your fault if a drunk driver on a cell phone hits you while you're on your bike. When someone talks about what they do/how they do it and holds it up as the shining example of how it should be done, that's self-righteousness defined. It's a pity you can't see that.

I'd like to explore how absolute that is. Texting driver crosses the centerline slams into you head-on, that's your fault? You are riding in a protected bike lane. The kind where there is a row of cars between the road and the bike lane. A drunk driver slams into a parked car, knocking it into you, is that your fault?

Not sure how long your kids been out of school but that's the MO of his profession these days.
