Don't know if any of you have been following this trial...It's been getting plenty of attention from local riders here (LA):
Doctor gets five years for injuring cyclists

Let me guess. Cyclists riding in the middle of the lane very slow and at night. Crap happens here all the time.

Jeebus - you could at least read the article before jumping to conclusions.

Drive around town here and you will soon hate most cyclists (even if you love cycling). Many of the riders have absolutely no respect for anyone else on the road.

There's a difference between CYCLISTS and people riding bicycles.

No doubt - but read the article to learn some of the facts behind the attack. Here's a couple - downhill, nearly at the speed limit. I remember when it occurred...I think there may have been a thread here before also.

Edit: found it. Linky

95 percent of the time its 2 cyclists in full gear riding their Trek Road bikes with their "Team Discovery" lycra span decks on.



Its sad but unfortunately true.

But that's because I don't. I'm on a bicycle. Clearly, I'm more intelligent.

Oh yeah, anybody got any good tips on asking your boss for 4-5 weeks off from work for bicycling related idiocy reasons?

Bummer.

Good luck
