Dogs maul children daily. We should euthanize all dogs.



Your logic is highly flawed.

Your logic is the one thats flawed. This cyclist took his life in his own hands by choosing to ride on a major highway into Charlotte at rush hour. He has no chance on a road with large cars and trucks and no bicycle lanes. He also was riding at far less than the posted 55 MPH speed limit.

Its basic common sense. A 20 pound bike with a 180 pound rider has no chance against a much faster heavier object on the road. Common damn sense here.

Why don't you read the responses in the article. Many people that bike in this city feel the exact same way that I do.

My town.... can't you put two and two together with the newspaper article to figure it out. Obviously very weak in the common sense department.

42 miles out on Pt. Reyes this Saturday, followed by a 20 mile spin ride on Sunday. The Pt. Reyes ride should be a beautiful day. Temps are expected to be in the mid 60s and nice and clear. If we get out early, we should be back before it starts to get windy.

Going for my first ride since a short 20 miler (fixed in hills though) in February this saturday with GF and her new Felt rig.

35 miler to Piermont NY on route 9.

Road is a 2 lane but busy both ways, has bicycle route signs and a good shoulder for about 65% of it.

Still, some careless driver decided to sway into a fellow bicyclist last summer (30 something male) and kill him.

Happy trails this wknd D.

Yup, it feels good to get out without dealing with sub-freezing temps. The un-paved back roads are a little gooshy, so those will have to wait a bit. But wow. Open roads!!!

invite to mr rajflyboy

I live in one of the consistent top 5 unsafest areas to cycle or be a pedestrian. If you ever roll this far south I would be happy to teach you how to bicycle safely in dangerous places.




I single handedly fended off a teenage street walker the other morning on my ride in. I have mad skills.

When I see cyclists riding in rush hour on major 4 lane streets through the city I make sure to NOT give them any extra room. They don't deserve it. Go find a better, safer place to ride!

you know what


some mods may have seen this and decided it was not worth a couple of days off

I am not one of them
