What is the deal this week?
Get hit by a van. (not hurt)
Some moron bike commuter decides to play chicken/shoulder checks me on the waterfront bike path.
Get buzzed on Skyline by an SUV, I give him the finger and he tries to squeeze me off the road a few times. I call 911 and report his plates.
Every third person in the last few days decides to yell at me for every stop sign or red light I coast through.
And, I get a flat on a training ride. What?!
This shit never happens to me. I am the slowest, most agreeable bike commuter out there. I yield to cars and ped traffic all day long. I smile and wave to pissed off farmers while training on their back roads. Mostly they wave back. That is good for cycling right?
The weather got nice here in raintown for a few days last week and the bike traffic on the roads jumped tenfold. I think the rapid jump in the number of cyclists out there has aggravated the non bike populace. They are frakking everywhere! I almost got tagged by a cyclist last night while riding home; he blew the stop sign and then yelled at me!
Remember the Cinelli Alter stem? That shit was amazing. Underlying sexism and heterosexism in cycling. Shit, it is not even underlying. It is kinda funny, you watch that video and it just seems like a boys club. Go crazy! Throwing shit around in hotel rooms, yanking each others pants off. Dude, I’m not gay or anything. I’m just saying.

I’m off to Mexico for a week next week. Going to watch Pete go Marlin fishing.
