The biker is just as much an asshole as the OP is. Just because you have a right to ride your bike in the street doesn't mean you should do it and force everybody behind you to go 5 MPH for however long it takes you to turn, arrive at your destination, or realize how much of a sick pathetic bastard you're being by not simply pulling over for a second and letting the person pass you. If you're riding a bike, you're obviously not in a hurry to get anywhere or else you'd be in a car, whereas the person in a car behind you might be on his way to work or a hospital and you're fucking him over just because you're a selfish assfuck and "LIKE OMG ITS MY RITE!!!" Of course I'm only talking about situations where the driver is stuck behind the biker. If the driver can go around the biker and just keeps driving behind him instead, the driver's the shithole.
Did you know that some people cannot afford cars, and need to ride a bike to get to work. It's true! Not everyone has money! And in some areas it's not only illegal to ride your bike on the sidewalk, but it's strictly enforced. Nor is it always possible to move over, especially if there's a curb. I suggest people calm the F down and realize that being delayed by a whole minute isn't going to be the end of the world.
Okay, if somebody can't afford a car or a bus, can't get a ride from a friend or car pool, can't walk, is late for work, and is in a city with a lot of traffic, then I can understand not wanting to step aside for a few seconds to save somebody else a few minutes. But otherwise, it's very selfish not to.
it's not selfish at all. if more people rode bikes not only would the planet be more healthy, but so would people. people have a right to ride bikes, and did anybody think that the bike probably could not phyiscally go faster? the correct thing to do is simply wait for a chance to overtake them, not abuse them for making a perfectly valid choice on how to get around. Bikers are not allowed to ride on the sidewalk in most places, and they have just as much right to be on the road as a stupid, road raged driver who guzzles gas.
No they do not. If it was a motorbike then they have equal rights to go at the speed limit. Driving 20mph under is not only annoying but can be unsafe. If (as I think you took it) it was a normal bike, then they have no right to the road at all. There are bike paths all over the place but, you know, if you're too good for them, there a whole meter or so at the side of the road that would perfectly accommodate a bike.
i beeped at people as they pulled out of my condo complex almost hitting me. i dont care where you live, if you drive like an idiot im going to let you know.
"i honked, cursed, screamed, and yelled"... holy crap. calm down. maybe you should look into anger management programs... he's on a bike what do you expect.
