    JFierce: actually, in many countries, biking on the sidewalk's against the law. And, where there are no special bike lanes, the road's our only option. Dunno how things are where you are though.

    Also, as an avid cyclist myself, when on the road, it is much safer for us to be dicks on the middle of the road, rather than huddling ourself on the side of the lane. Less risk of cars accidentally clipping us in our sides, which there have been many a death from actually (bikers losing control, falling into traic, next car runs over biker).

    By staying in the middle, cars will pass us like other cars, instead of trying to squeeze narrowly between. Not everyone's a masterful driver y'know.

    And often, even though it is healthy, fun, and a great way to start and end the workday, biking's not the transportation of choice, but rather, what the monthly budget allows.

    Just sayin, so you realize, we're not riding our bikes disturbing the traffic with a giant trollface going " u mad bro?"

    But, most importantly:

    Life's too short to get bothered by the little things, so quit yer whining, Barefoot.

    If your most serious problem is that people are talking about a TV show a lot, well, I'd like your life.

    Cyclists have the right to the road in the US, Canada, and a bunch of other countries by international treaty. Unless they're riding on the freeway, they're supposed to be there. Not on the sidewalk.

    And yeah, there's asshole cyclists but I haven't encountered nearly as many as asshole drivers.

    It is.

    I've been waiting for about a decade to see it.

    Initial thoughts "Unfilmable, simply too big."
    Show announced "Well, it's hbo, it might be not horrible..."
    Cast announced "Cautious optimism, they're clearly not trying to cheapskate this.."
    Show starts "inward chanting of please don't suck please don't suck"

    Watched first season, a similar combination of relief and happiness as when Peter Jacksons first Lord of the Rings movie was not a terribly animated 70s cartoon..

    Hey OP, watch Game of Thrones.

    Possible spoilers, Game of Thrones as a 90s rpg.

    Bicyclists can have the road all they want, but if they're going to use the road, why can't they follow traffic rules? Like, y'know, stopping for red lights and not zooming the wrong way down one way streets and generally not running over pedestrians... I don't know how many bikes have nearly hit me while I'm crossing the street. One DID slam into me once, but I was carrying a giant portfolio, so it was the portfolio that got injured...

    I only have the vaguest idea of what the hell "Game of thrones" is, and the few brain cells I have left keep telling me not to worry about it.

    Game of Thrones as an RPG: No matter how you play, you die horribly in the end!

    That would be kind of awesome...

    If you can keep your "likeable" attributes at less than 20 you get to survive until the next season.

    But yeah, then you die horribly.

    Oh George...

    They are supposed to follow traffic rules. They are treated like motor vehicles, just a bit less dangerous.

    Because, where you are (Manhattan), a lot of then are bike messengers who get paid per run. A bike can get through Manhattan traffic quicker than anything else, especially if you're, shall we say, creative with spacial relations and traffic regulations.

    I can't speak for anyone else that rides a bike, but the only time I would go through a red light is if it's completely safe to do so. I have a huge increase in visibility compared to when I am driving a car, and I am not much bigger than a pedestrian. Basically, If it would be safe to J walk then I might do it. After I have stopped to check of course.

    Probably 90% of the time I end up waiting at lights because it's the only safe thing to do.

    I think this is a somewhat better system: http://bicycling.com/blogs/roadright...sign-solution/

    Treating bikes and cars with the same laws is a terrible idea. Bikes have more in common with joggers than they do cars. The problem is usually because of the lack of infrastructure set up for bikes.
    If bikes share sidewalks with pedestrians, the pedestrians have a risk of being hit. If bikes share roads with cars, the cyclists have a risk of being killed by giant metal boxes on wheels.
    Until separate avenues are in place for bikes(like in parts of Europe) the problem will just continue.

    Almost every day I hear people who drive only cars complain about and/or abuse(throwing stuff out windows, honking/yelling, swerving,) people on bikes for just existing(extra true for females on bikes).
    It just gets tiring hearing it all the time especially considering the people in the cars would obviously not be the ones with the high chance of injury/death if there was an accident.
