Why do Europeans all seem to ride those old-fashioned sit upright bikes with full fenders? They look like they'd weigh 75 pounds.

/maybe that's why they're all skinny

Small children weigh less than an adult bicyclist - but I'm not sure having them playing in the street is good for anyone involved.

How about everyone follows the farking rules of the road. Stop driving your urban assault vehicle like an obtuse moran. Stop riding your bike like your a farking god.

EVERYONE NEEDS TO: Stop at stop signs, signal turns, and give right aways to those who deserve right aways.

Grow up, drivers (fatmitter) and cyclists.

Let's see...Fark, Nuns, Handi's, and volunteers for the Elderly. None of which flip me off when I yell at them when they run a red light on purpose or cut between lanes because they don't think traffic laws apply to them.

Use different examples, cuz you ain't a farkin saint.

Dude, I'm southern enough to have been invited to a Klan meeting (no I didn't go) and I almost never hear anyone hate on Jewish people. Have you actually heard someone place the blame for all the world's problems on Jewish folks?

That would be a level of racism I have never seen; and if you knew my grandmother you would know how nutso it would have to be to take the gold.

I'm generally OK with bicyclists, but I almost flattened one the other night. There seems to be a trend of guys riding bicycles without lights or reflectors at night whilst wearing dark clothes, at least around here.

This has gotten so bad that I've noticed some people at four way stops think you're yielding the right of way to them by coming to a complete stop, rather than rolling through. No jackass, I stop, then you stop, then I go (because I was there first) then you go.

Actually, there are bike paths all over Copenhagen, and most people ride bikes or walk. It might have something to do with the 180% tax on new cars. (I think that's the right number)

Turns out I might have something to contribute to this thread.

The silliest part of this is that good lighting for bicycles has never been more readily available or affordable than it is now. The LED lights kick ass, both for seeing, and being seen.

And the bicyclists in Berlin are just as aggressive as they are here. I know, I've seen them riding around, and even though they have the bike paths, the riders will not stay in them. The worst was walking to the Victory Column up Straße des 17. Juni, and having rider after rider speeding toward me on the pedestrian side of the sidewalk.

Alas, my days of terrorizing the streets of Philly on my bicycle configured for day/night, all weather urban assault are over, since I'm retiring in the spring. It was a good 12 year, 19,000 mile run...

Around here (Nebraska) they seem to know what they mean pretty well but usually respond by leaning on their horn and yelling "get off the road!" at the most polite.

Most drivers follow this display by plowing through a cross walk or around a corner with no attention paid to any pedestrians or cyclists trying to cross, completely validating my decision to be in the road where they can see me well enough to yell rude things.
