  2. They are not illiterate....there are pictures on the sign for heavens sake...they just don't give a D***. Rules are for someone else.

  3. My son tells me that it's always because the guy in front is going too slow so they have to pass him.

  4. I didn't get this till I realised it must be against traffic laws to ride several abreast, where you are. Not here, as far as I know :)

  5. I can't help feeling we have too many road signs here in the UK. I think cyclists the world over; ignore road traffic rules.

  6. They were just huddling together to stay warm. No matter that they took their share of the road out of the middle.

  7. Their spandex pants are so tight that their brains are struggling for air.

  8. Same over here, when the Tour Down Under (TDU) is on. For weeks beforehand we get groups of cyclists taking up all the space on their side of the road, either practising or pretending, then of course while the race is on it's the same thing but with the road closed to traffic. After the race there are a few groups still pretending to be TDUs but then it all quietens down for another year.
    When we were little we were taught to ride two abreast and go single file if the road was narrow, we weren't supposed to get in the way of traffic at all.

  9. Maybe they feel safer as a herd :)

  10. Ooooops! I don't think I've seen very many cyclists on our road. I wouldn't ride here either because Hawaii is supposed to have some of the worst drivers in the states.

  11. One shared brain between the lot of them. And not a very big one.

  12. Cycling is very big over here, on our isle - and many of our roads are very, very narrow - it is often quite terrifying trying to pass them, and I often don't at all! That said, every school over here puts the children through a two day cycling proficiency course, which gives them a sound safety grounding for life. I'm sure it saves lives.

  13. Considering they are fortunate to have a designated bicycle lane, you would think the riders would have more sense...

  14. All the blood from the brain sinks down to the legs, I think. My son bikes, but he is very cautious. Obeys the laws. I hope.
