Festus spent a lot of money on the bike path to West city park yet "Professional bicyclist" in full attire refuse to use the bike path, instead they hold up traffic by driving in the middle of the road. One almost caused an accident today as a motorist had to pass him.
We know how cool you are but use the path!!!!

I know that this will come as a shock to you but bicyclists have just as much right to use the road as you do. It's the law. You were supposed to learn this in driver's education but apparently you weren't a very good student.

A driver who "almost" gets into an accident passing a bicyclist is a driver whose license should be taken away. If you can't pass a bicyclist safely then you are incompetent. How do you pass buses, garbage truck and loaded 18 wheelers? Those are much more difficult to pass (but still pretty easy).

There could be any number of reasons why a bicyclist would choose the road over the bike path. Many bike paths have a lot of pedestrians and pedestrians tend to have no clue about what's going on around them making it very dangerous. I usually find that most bike paths don't go where I want to go. In any case, they have a right to ride on the road. You need to get over it.

You need to grow up an let go of your childish ignorant delusions of entitlement. Sharing the road with bicyclists is easy. It is not the terrible hardship that you are pretending that it is. Just move over to pass as you would for ANY other slow traffic and get on with your day like a normal non-insane person.

billdsd Cars are bigger than bikes unlike your mom because she is bigger than most vans. These bicyclist don't ever stop at the stop sign, they run everyone, unlike your mother at McDonald's, she stops at every McDonald's. Now take your fancy bike close wearing, left coast self and sniff some boys seats.
Bicyclists:

Are lawfully permitted to ride on certain sections of roadway in rural areas where there is no alternate route.

Shall ride as near to the right curb or edge of the roadway as practical– not on the sidewalk.
Are legally allowed to ride in the center of the lane when moving at the same speed as other traffic.

So you are pretty arrogant and obviously have not read the drivers manual. Tell your mother that FESTUS said hi. All of us ;)
