"It's too bad some people are inconsiderate of others." What an ironic statement by one of the riders. Do these bicycle riders not realize how annoying they are riding in the middle of roads made for automobiles? I have been behind too many riders that refuse to get out of the way to feel sorry for this group getting their tires blown out.

I agree, but still no reason for this kind of action.

we've all been behind riders who refuse to get out of the way, who think that it is more their right to be in the road than for the cars to be there. However, this was just wrong. It could have seriously hurt someone if the bike would have flipped over from the tire blowing out.

Bullets in the road won't give flat tires though.
