This week’s Clarendon Cycles column starts:
“Get off the !@#$%^& road!”
“!@#$ you, I have just as much a right to be here as you do.”
And so goes a rather sizeable proportion of most on-road cyclist/motorist conversations. It doesn’t accomplish anything, except perhaps raising the blood pressure of those involved and setting the stage for a more aggressive conflict the next time a similar interaction occurs.
It’s stupid, pointless, and childish.
And I’ve got a bit of experience with it. Click the link above for more.
