Alexandra McColl isn’t a fan of bicyclists who she says hog the road and make her late to school.
Recently, I was running 5 minutes later than usual on my drive to school, but if I didn’t hit any red lights I was sure I would be able to make it to class before the tardy bell. Traffic was moving swiftly, and lights were remaining green- things were looking good. Suddenly, a bicyclist swerved in front of me, and my chances of being on time were ruined as I was forced to drive 5 miles per hour behind a road hogging, slow riding, uncourteous, biker.
I know some people might not like my opinion on this.
Sure, biking is a great way to save money, help the environment, and get good exercise, but it shouldn’t be at my expense!
Try as they might, bikers simply cannot achieve the same speed as a car, which is why there is often a bike lane located conveniently on the right side of the road. But this doesn’t please all of them. They’d much rather take up the whole street, and seemingly hope I miss my first class. In my mind, they are damaging my education, and my temper.
Careless bikers like these give them all a bad name.
Bicyclists should remember that courtesy goes both ways, and when it comes to Sharing the Road it’s a two way street.
