No, I was always “Jim”. I haven’t been to the board in a while. I do not ride when it is cold so out of sight out of mind kind of thing. I just rode for the first time this year this week so it got into my blood again.
Penn Avenue at Sixth Street westbound about 8:15 Thursday morning, I’m taking the curb lane while a car next to me is about to turn left onto Sixth. We’re patiently waiting for the light to change when some cyclist blows past us both, to the left of the car, going at least a jogging pace. I don’t recall if Sixth had a green or whether it was on the four-way-ped-xing part of the cycle, but all I could think was, “You dumb s**t, you’re setting a bad example, not to mention trying to get creamed.”
I’m for adopting Idaho rules, too, but cyclists doing stupid things like that make it hard for the cycling community to get any cred.
