I lived there for 7 years and found that cyclists are very irresponsible in general. They blow through red lights, and when they nearly git hit they cuss and flip off the people THEY pulled in front of. Cyclists act like everyone in the world is responsible for their safety except for them. I remember Portland was giving out FREE bicycle lamps, and this idiot called a radio show and said "I don't need a light, I can see fine at night! The radio show host replied "It's so drivers can see you dumbass !" What really gets me is most of these bicyclists are older people. I don't really feel sorry for they when they get hit.
