Why cant all these bicycle riders ride somewhere else met one on a curve this morning going across 194 to banner elk.If another car had been coming around the curve we would have probably wrecked they are a hazard and should be stopped from riding on certain roads.

I see this everyday on my road. Someone is going to get hurt. It is impossible to see there biker around blind curves. I don't care if they ride, if they could use a little common sense!

Well the area promotes this kind of tourism, has created bike lanes elsewhere, and are therefore responsible for the traffic problems. Petition your local govt. to get them to provide a solution to the problem.

I think we need a fat tax to pay for the bike lanes. All of the fat redneck trash raises health care rates and i have to pay for 100000$ worth of services so they can live a extra year before dieing from a heart attack why not tax their lard azz so i can have a nice bike lane to stay sexy and in shape.

If a car hit a bicycle because of visibility problems like sharp curves, weather,or riding on a highway with a speed limit of 45 and up mph. It should be the cyclists fault for being dumb enough to ride a bike on a road made for autos.
Build a track in the woods somewhere and make bicycling illegal anywhere else.

We should make fat people illegal in towns as pretty as Boone. Having to look at such disgusting vermin ruins the views and fat people on motor cycles with beer guts should just be allowed to live in some place like Tennessee. Redneck trash should just be put on a island so they can interbreed and die out one day.

The law allows Bikes on the road. Slow your vehicles down and you will see them as you come around that blind curve. The bikes have just as much right to be on the road as the gas guzzlers.

Speed limit is how FAST you can legally go. Unless there is a minimum speed, like on major interstates, you can go as slow as you want without impeding traffic. Go run over a cyclist and tell the cop that he was just going too damn slow. See how well that flies.

If a bicycle or moped has the same rights to be on a highway as i do in a car, they should have to pay taxes, have a tag, lights and insurance.

It is dangerous for bicyclists to ride on some of the more narrow, yet highly traveled roads in Watauga County. I accidentally ran a guy on a bicycle off the road the other day on Wilson's Ridge road because I came around a curve and there he was, in my lane and a car was coming the opposite direction. I inched by the bicyclist because no time to stop or go anywhere, and I guess it pretty much scared the crap out of him, because he headed for the ditch line. I'm not going to purposely run anyone on a bike off the road, but neither am I going to lament them if they bite the dust because of a lack of common sense.

These comments are very uneducated. I am a mtn biker for this reason, people in cars in general have no consideration for bikers or anyone else and are typically in a rush to get somewhere. Anyone that would comment they would run over a biker just because is a sad case. I would assume like myself most people out riding on a road bike also have a car and do carry insurance. I cannot believe people in Boone feel this way about someone out getting the most awesome exercise there is, maybe you guys are jealous because you are out of shape, just a thought. Please be careful and do watch out for the bicycle riders. The thing I believe shouldn't be allowed on the road is mopeds, they are very dangerous!

A moped is just as dangerous as a bicycle. Cars and trucks are suppose to share the road with bikes, well bikes should share the road as well instead of riding right in the middle of the lane!!!!

That is what I am talking about We were hauling heavy equipment across 194 from Banner Elk and ran into one in a curve we barely got slowed down enough to keep from hitting them.They should stay on the shoulder of the road not in the middle.I can ride a bike and used to enjoy riding but with all the drunks and drug addicts we have here you couldn't pay me to ride again.

They should also follow the same rules of traffic that a car does. I have noticed that none if the cyclists around here follow traffic laws. Also, if you're out for a joy ride at 8:00am on a much traveled highway when everyone else is trying to to get to work that morning and you're holding up traffic, then don't get pissed when someone honks their horn at you. You know good and well that your holding up traffic. At least have the common decency to pull over and let some cars go by

We're not jealous, we're concerned for our safety and our children who may be riding us in our vehicle. Cyclists cause accidents. Many motorists use their cars to get to work. It makes sense that cyclists should refrain from using high traffic and very curvy roads. If you need exercise, go out on the parkway.
