You never know with dogs. My dog lives with bikes and riders, and still barks like crazy at bike riders. It’s our family’s shame. I tell her: “Every bite of food you eat, everything good that comes your way, is because of bikes, so no bark!” But she can’t help herself; she’s a terrier.”
If you happen to be out at night on the bike path without a light, ring your bell constantly. No bell? Then sing “Hotel Yorba” on a continuous loop, loud enough to warn the unseen.
I don’t encourage blasting through stop signs or riding like an idiot. I want to make that clear. But given the number of riders (and idiots) out there, there are bound to be some who ride that way and, yes, anger drivers. But they also keep drivers on their toes – here comes another cyclist; I wonder if he’s as oblivious and suicidal as the last one…
Our life is full of irony isn’t it … I find the whole story about F1 racing and sustainability quite difficult. F1 racing is a celebration of crazy, unsustainable use of cars in many ways and I would much rather like to see more use of the park for cycling and all of those kind of things.
