These morbidly obese women in their spandex or polyester outfits and these gay men in their spandex and gay helmets ought to go to parks to ride and walk or perhaps school parking lots when its closed.
They don't belong on the rode causing accidents.

Greater Beckley is one of least pedestrian/cyclist-friendly areas I've ever seen.

These "men" who ride bicycles think they own the road. What they actually own is a child's toy and some extremely homosexual apparel.

Not like cyclists can actually commute around town. Follow the rules of the road and you get deafened with honking while hauling ass in a 25. So what is the point? Every time you ride here, you put your life at risk.

How can you get place to place riding in a park? Use some logic here, people.

Why would anyone be against something that would keep you in shape, not omit pollution, and save gas costs is beyond me.

Here we go again: Taxpayers asked to spend their money on people who are stupid and have no self discipline.

Right up until the mid 80s, there were few fat people in the area. I know this for a fact because I just watched an hour video that included over 50,000 West Virginians, and only found one fat woman.

They had no bike paths or special walking paths. They had self discipline.

Then the world must be pieces of sh*t, because everyone hates bikes except for chidlren and homos. I saw a bunch of them parked at the picket line at Chick-Fil-A. I though about plowing them over on my way to eat, but didnt want to have to deal with a bunch of gay men in spandex crying and hugging each other over their tragic loss.

I'm sure plenty of Olympic athletes would disagree with your sentiment. Sad fact is, most West Virginians simply couldn't pull it off.

none of you would ever do anything to someone on a bike, you're all the same people who yell and blow horns then get timid when caught at a red light. you roll up your windows and pretend we're not there like the true coward you are. Don't try to pretend "well I'd actually do something" because you wouldn't and Ill be riding my bike today and can post the exact loop if you wanna prove something.

Completely agree with you. I was riding a few weeks ago and a some smug ass honked and flipped me off for just riding on the edge of the road. Then he got caught at the red light about a half mile up so I hopped off my bike and walked up to his rolled down window and asked what the F#$k his problem was - then drilled him in the face through the window. Fat F$#k didn't say a word and didn't do a thing about it. These fat [email protected] thinking they are high and mighty in their big bad car-cars won't be a problem for long once they die from their obesity and food induced coma's they get from riding around stuffing double cheeseburgers in their faces.* I own a car but don't think I'm special because I drive one. Homosexuals also drive cars spandyman.

I ride a bike in the evening. I am gay and that doesn't make anything in this conversation. I do carry a firearm with me at all times. I am also a white American citizen. I also have the right to protect myself as the 2nd amendment states. If anyone EVER makes a real effort to run me off the road "just for the fun of it" they will see the barrel of a smith. Also trash mouth I don't wear spandex, beside what the hell are you doing looking at a mans crotch anyway you closet case.

If your hobby makes you have to carry a gun because you piss everyone off doing it, then you need a new hobby.

We have those fags around here. Every Saturday they clog the roads and block everyone. I have found that tossing pennies at them when you pass them gets me a good laugh.

I have passed them and then slowed down to 5mph and started weaving so they could not pass. I hope one has a stroke when he gets a taste of his own medicine.

I had one of them stop at the local store I was at one day and he had the balls to confront me. I knocked him out cold and took his bike. When I got it home I took a hacksaw to it and tossed it to the side of the road where his buddies would find it.

They actually stopped ruining my Saturdays for a few weeks. I need to do that again some time.
