Wouldn't have wanted to go into his ER in a bicycle helmet, though. :eek1
No. But his being in a jail cell has lessened the chances of a bicyclist having to go to the ER.
That only confirms that his ego and self-image were already inflated to where he thought the law didn't apply to him. This wasn't his first issue with cyclists.
We all have occasional issues - doesn't matter if we're in a car, on a motorcycle or on a bicycle. I suspect that if you're someone who is always having issues with another particular class, you may want to examine your own actions first.
I've got just over 3,000 cycling miles YTD and I can count the number of issues I've had with motorists while on the bicycle on 1 hand. On the other hand, there aren't enough hands in the room to count the number of issues I've had with other drivers while driving myself. I'm probably one of the more aggressive hybrid-driving-HOV-lane-using fools you'll ever see. And yes, that's mostly on me. I take responsibility for it too.
Of course, I could hit while riding the bike tomorrow and die too.
Seeings how i'm staying approx in the middle of the start & finsh...bigolebrain had an idea!
a 'lil outta place
time to climb...the Campton/Waterville side of SandwichNotch...it's a bitch
I made it...time for a few PBR
the band played on...
as the straggles rolled in
Blair Bridge from the patio
about 50/50 tar/dirt...2700 climb feet...and i wondered why the PBR tasted so good
Here's a new Leadville update, for anyone interested. The CTS camp is highly recommended.
Um, mother fucking excuse me? Not sure I read this right.
I think you did read it correctly. Piss off the motoring public and expect aggravated assault in the form of a car brake checking you...copy that. I think a violent felony is appropriate given the circumstances, after all they bring it on themselves.
wow you must be fun at parties
I've lost the subject-verb agreement in your last statement. Who brought what on themselves? The dr. who is going to jail for passing and then causing an accident while injuring two cyclists OR the cyclists who were riding in a legal manner?
It was a fragmented thought. How one can lay any blame on the cyclists for such a violent act ("...riders do bring this on themselves") is absurd. Regardless of how the cyclists were riding, agg. assault with a vehicle is an egregious response.
I thought the first bridge looked familiar, then the Notch Road sign, but Blair Bridge confirmed it. Nice ride! Been 25 years since I did that one, glad to see the road connecting SN road to 175 at Wishman Hill is still open. I'll be there in a coupla weeks showing my kids Big Rock and all the other Mad River swimming holes.
Thanks - I think the punishment fit the crime and for the icing on the cake, I'm sure a civil action will quickly follow.
(I'm in Ahwatukee - have recently started riding the Saturday morning rides with the PMBC - if you're on any of these, look for me - a blue recumbent.)
I find myself on Pecos every now and then, hopefully we will cross paths.
Good deal - I'm taking a week off the bike and that ends Saturday. After that, I'm on Pecos and other parts of Ahwatukee from roughly 0430 to 0530 most morning at least until the heat breaks and I can ride after work. Hope to see you out - safe riding otherwise.

The text underneath says that he was inconsolable after losing the race because the cleat on his shoe came loose from the pedal.
Plantation triathlete Molli Serrano was riding through Weston with more than 30 cyclists when a sheriff's deputy stopped them around dawn, the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Serrano was the only one given a $65 ticket on March 6. Her offense: riding outside the bike lane a violation the deputy said was committed by most everyone in the group. Deputy Dominic Raimondi says Serrano got the ticket because she stood out in her purple outfit. He said there were so many cyclists, he had to choose one, so he chose to "fixate" on the woman in purple.
Serrano, a cancer survivor, wears purple to bring awareness to pancreatic cancer. The group left the bike lane to pass a slower rider which is allowed by state law, said her attorney, Jonathan Ewing. Serrano, a stay-at-home mom who rides 200 miles a week with the Weston Flyers, said she's contesting the ticket as a matter of principle.
I'm glad the cops are finally doing something about these lawless hooligans.
Completely off topic from the last few posts, but I forgot to mention this when it happened.
So, last week I was at my local trail for the first time feeling really good about myself for wanting to be in better shape and have fun doing it. Well, along comes this guy who is doing much better than me which is reasonable. However, he is pedaling kinda funny. I get to looking, and he only has ONE LEG! :eek1 Riding a MTB!
Much respect to that guy
I know that feeling. My first year of cycling I thought I was doing good until a couple on mountain bikes and huge tires passed me up on the paved road while having a conversation. I was riding a carbon fiber road bike.
LOL! Wrong feeling. He was starting from the parking lot as I finished, I have no idea how fast he was. That said, he looked like he had been doing this for a long time, so I bet he would have been faster/more efficient than me.
I just meant that I really respected the guy for doing something he loved, even though the odds were against him.
