Why cant the bicyclist ride on the little paths and trails that are all over the damn state that say NO MOTORIZED VEHICLES ALLOWED? You can ride on my shit, but I cant ride on yours? Fucking hypocrites.

Problem solved!

You must be much less of a rider than I thought, and that wasn't much.
Geez, just read an article today about solar activitiy causing wars, disputes, murders and such. The solar maximum must be coming up soon and I may have to find a cave to move into...

But on the subject of bicycles normally I have no problem with them if they follow the rules. The problem I have is about every group (10+) I come up on. I watch them blow through stop signs, ride 3-4 abreast, spread out forever and not providing you any room to pass safely and just pretty much oblivious to everything around them but themselves. Of course I may just be jaded as I live in an area that seems to be a mecca for Columbusites to put on orangized rides and kind of pisses me off when I'm trying to get home or out and get stuck in the middle of 100 bikes for miles on end and having 20 you just passed, pass you when you stop at the stop sign and they just go around you ignoring it. Just my 2 cents...

I didn't say I would ever purposely hit a bicyclist. I was pointing out others who would just cross the double yellow then realize there was an oncoming car "might". In such a situation the bike is the looser no mater what happens to the driver.
I refuse to be an aggressive driver because they can't share the road.

I would do the same thing again. I hope they don't act like Harley riders in a parade next time because the kid who misjudges their pass and clips the outside rider may be wrong but the bicyclist may well be the bigger loser.

You can go through the stop sign also if you want.

OK, serious question. In reading the code sections offered up I didn't see anything that says you have to pass in the left lane, just something about safely. And what about the roads that are not wide enough to have center markers. What is the proper technique?

Hey Adam, I actually agree with you for once. ;)

OK, I don't want to be a prick about it, but I've been a motorcyclist for 40+ years and a bicyclist for 25 years.
Yeah, I've run into bicyclists who were pricks, but I've run into far more motorists and motorcyclists who were bigger pricks.
Everyone, lose the attitude! If you are in a car, Harley, or Adv bike, ease up! It's not going to cost you 5 seconds for your manlyhood.
Same with bicycles. Share the road.
I've been on both sides, and really, when you think about it, what the hell, slow down!

Man, I need to hire a flunky to mow yards so I can ride on weekdays again....

Side note: There's more sand in the vaginas here than what I had in my eyes yesterday...
