Hey Asshole! Yeah You, The One On The Bike!

Cyclists fare best when they act and are treated as drivers of vehicles. – John Forester

Seriously now, why are you riding the wrong way against all the traffic?  It’s people like you who make the rest of us law-abiding cyclists look bad!

It’s great you’re riding your bike, I love to ride mine too, but please don’t make up your own god damn rules.  You expect every other driver, cyclist and pedestrian to figure out what your new rules are that you just made up?

So why are you riding the wrong way?  Because you don’t like it when you can’t see the cars coming from behind you?

Listen, when cars are pulling out of driveways, they are usually about to make a right turn, because that’s the direction where traffic is going and they want to merge.  So they are going to look to their LEFT until it’s clear.

They’re not looking to their RIGHT because cars aren’t coming from that direction! So if you keep riding the wrong way, you’re going to get run over.

Then you’re going to get pissed at the driver?  BITCH, PLEASE.  Just because you’re on a bicycle doesn’t mean that if you get hit by a car, that it was automatically the motorists fault.

YOU’RE MAKING THE REST OF US CYCLISTS LOOK BAD. Every time we see a red-light runner, a traffic-weaver, or a moron riding the wrong way on the street, it just adds to the stereotype that all cyclists ride erratically.  So please, learn how to ride your bicycle safely (and confidently) on the street so we could all get along.

    I have been alerted (thanks to redditors) that when someone is riding the wrong way, they’re called a SALMON, cause they’re struggling to ride upstream.

    They’re not look­ing to their RIGHT because cars aren’t com­ing from that direc­tion! So if you keep rid­ing the wrong way, you’re going to get run over.

    So if kids run on the street.

    I dont agree with this. You have to watch out for cars making a right or merging on to the street no matter what!, if there pulling out, stop and wait. I especially love all the cussing in this article. Bitch Please?? LOL
