So yea! There I was, cycling home after a recovery ride with my friend Garland. The air had cleared and we took a jaunt out to Miller Creek Valley. Mr G went on to do a longer ride and I headed home for some recovery when it happened. [Photo Gallery]
I hit 39th street, one of my favorite streets. I like it because it has a divider and big bike lanes. Its more like a boulevard. Champs de Higgi! I was riding without thinking, just relaxing, then something brought me out of my stupor and also the bike lane.
It was all automatic. I saw some parked vehicles and so I went around them. What I didn’t know was that I was entering the anti bike zone.
It seems that motorists hate the bike lane so much that when they see a cyclist come out of the lane they figure that the son of a bitch is fair game. So I was assaulted and at one point I thought I was going to get beat to a pulp by a bunch of angry motorists. What happened?
The Good Shepherds Children Center. 2321 39th St. 829-3404 apparently had some sort of meeting and all those rich shepherds (deduced from all the SUVs), being above the law (won’t say anything about a religion organization), parked in the bike lane. They thought, “wow, a lane just for me”.
I wonder how many cyclist put their lives in danger because of these jerks? Save the children, kill the cyclist! If these are shepherds I sure would hate to meet the wolves.
