maybe it's just me because i am on 123 everyday all day, but if you are telling me that these two douches aren't making a dumb decision by riding side by side less than two feet away from a road where the speed limit is 55 and people do 65 to 70, you have to be kidding me. i think it's the fact that it is a still picture and you have no realization that the speed i'm traveling is over 50mph. if one of them hits a rock or some debris from an old accident and veers to the left a foot they would be dead, same if someone is doing their makeup on the way to work, ijust seems like a stupid risk to me.

the part that kills me is there is a path, not a side walk, but a bike path just the same as the w o&d trail, about 15 feet off the road away from cars traveling at 65mph.

i don't know, maybe i'm the a-hole here won't be the first time and damn sure not the last

Yes, I DID just say that.: Why Bicyclists wear spandex
i can somewhat understand the bike pants, although i personally would wear shorts over them, like any normal person would do. as for the shirts are all road cyclist like andrew bernard and have sensitive nipples or what

So your point is because you want to take risks, others should stay out of your way?

no but i guess thats what you read, if you re-read it you will see that i am saying that i am hardly the only one on the road using their phone or iphone or ipod, or droid or whatever. and the fact that so many drivers are distracted is one of the reasons i think it's pretty stupid for them to be in the roadway with cars traveling over 50mph.

Yeah I know what you wrote, and it still doesn't make any sense to me

some bicyclist rules in MD:

Bicycles, motor scooters and EPAMDs are not permitted on any roads where the speed limit is more than 50 miles per hour or higher. (TR 21-1205.1)

A person riding a bicycle shall ride as close to the right side of the road as practicable and safe, except when.. (left turning, etc)

Where there is a bike lane, a person must use those and not ride a bicycle or motor scooter in the roadway except: (TR 21-1205.1)

The one that always gets me is if there is a bike lane, bicyclists must use it . . . and weve spent plenty of money making bike lanes

Thats one of the funniest things ive ever seen. I cant believe they really posted that.

How can they enforce based on "intent"?

You can't prove it. Open those doors, WPers.

Alright back to the topic. I just saw this and chuckled a bit given this thread:
