OMG: PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Bicycles are nothing to be afraid of. Yes, sometimes they go fast. Yes, sometimes they appear quickly. However, there is no reason to assume the cyclist plans on barreling into you from behind, thus there is no reason to jump unpredictably to one side at the last second when you hear them approach. If a bicycle scares you, you are an example of failure by coddling. Remain calm, continue walking where you were walking and assume the cyclist possesses instincts of self preservation. Or conquer fears and get some goddamn training wheels.

  1. It is instinctive for most advanced animals including human to be scared of unexpected fast moving objects behind us and get out of its way, because it might as well be a cheetah trying to have its dinner. It should be the cyclists' responsibility to ring a bell well in advance in order to prevent his from happening.

  5. Geez sorry OP but sometimes we're just not prepared to have any object barrel by behind us at high speed suddenly. Is there something wrong with that? It makes sense for you because you see us well in advance but we don't and bikes are silent. Nobody does this intentionally to offend you so why are you so pissed about it? In fact, why don't you get on the road with the cars like you're supposed to?

  6. Or cyclists could start using the bike lanes on the side of almost every road, rather than careening through busy sidewalks. idk, just a though

  7. Possibly the only benefit of winter and snow months are that cyclists fucking go away.
