Now, don't get me wrong... I usually go out of my way to make cyclists feel a bit more comfortable on the road. But what happened to me yesterday just proved how fcuking stuck up a lot of them are on the roads in the city. So, I had been offered a lift into the city. We stop at the lights at the top of Collins Street and I decide I'll get out and catch a tram or train to Flagstaff area. So I get out at the lights and I nearly hit a cyclist -- my bad, I was very apologetic and he was alright and moved on. So I wait a bit and I start to get out -- no cyclists coming. Then suddenly some Irish prick on a bike starts abusing the hell out of me, so of course I retaliate and it makes things a bit worse (let's just say after pushing me, he is now up for around $100-$200 for a new wheel). This is when things just went too far. I can understand if it's just some asshole that has nothing better in his life than to abuse other people over the most trivial things, but not when you have every cyclist on the road (and off) thinking he was in the right and start having a go at me. Non of them were even there or even saw what had happened. Are cyclists in the city really that moronic and stuck up that they have a thing against cars or other people on the road? I mean, seriously, what the hell... I did absolutely nothing wrong -- I apologized to the guy I nearly hit and I had ever right to step out of the car (by the way, the bike lane hadn't started til a few meters after the car). Ugh! /end rant Also that day I nearly got run off the road by a cop car that was speeding and not looking where he was going. ; Oh and I nearly run off a motorbike because he wasn't looking when he was dodging through the traffic on the freeway. Is it just me, or were the roads REALLY bad yesterday? I mean, I could see so many people doing the wrong thing... I guess a topic: What are your views on cyclists in the city? And cop cars that don't look at the road and nearly run you off it?
