The Chainlink

You blew the red light east bound on Lawrence at Damen at 5:26 pm this evening.

 

There was enough time for the biker in front of me to make it half way into the intersection, northbound on Damen, before you came whizzing past my front wheel.

 

I yelled "You're an idiot!" at your big haired chick, self, and you looked back at me. I meant it!

 

I woulda testified for any of the cars, that managed to not kill you, if they had.

 

Keep riding like a tard!

love,

gabe

 

Witness bad behavior during your commute? Feel free to post. Maybe that lovely human can read it and think they are famous. Maybe you can also inspire the whole generation of kids to shower but we can start with small things.

To the outstanding citizen in the grey Honda on west-bound Chicago Ave. this evening:

You saw that great opening in the right lane but didn't see me on my bike in the same lane. I see why you didn't hear me yelling. Thanks for trading paint!

Thanks to the riders who checked on my condition.

That road (that I ride on my commute every day as do many others...) is a nightmare.

I hope you are ok! And I'm glad other cyclists were looking out for you!

I do have to say that is the funniest picture. Cracked me up.

Is there a 'Hall of Shame' thread buried in CL somewhere?
It would be the right place for that picture.

I hope a report was filed

+1 to this. It seems you are OK, but still unacceptable.

To the woman who thought it was appropriate to put her bumper about 1 foot off my rear wheel:  I was in the middle of the lane because assholes like you are too stupid to realize how dangerous it is to squeeze by.  My solution: take the lane and force you to go to the other lane.  You made it so that I can't show my daughter my riding video from this morning, since there were way to many "blue" words in it...but I meant every one of them.

To the guy in the car behind her who started honking and pulled up next to her to give her a good dressing down:  thanks, bro!  Seriously, I do appreciate that you took the time to give her hell for being a douche.

Was that on SB Milwaukee? I was behind a single blue car that was riiiiiiiiiiiight up on the cyclist in front of them. I seriously thought they were going to try to overtake with a half-lane. Kudos to you or whomever it was for maintaining a clear line and steady pace.

Nah, I'm out in the burbs.  I ride to the train and then take that in to downtown.  This was on McCoy between Frontenac and George in Aurora.

Last night around 640pm with light traffic a pedestrian ensconced in a vital telephone conversation crosses Dearborn while walking eastbound on Lake.  He has a red light but does not appear to see it or anything else. I see a green bike on the light that faces me and am pedaling at a leisurely pace of perhaps 10mph. I am about 10 yards away and have some concern that there could be contact. I let out a whoop.  I guess I got more into it than I thought and suspect his underwear was no longer dry.  He seems to become invertebrate for a minute and his legs flail. He then executes a dance move like Bill Bojangles Robinson to regain his balance and begins to look around for what startled him. His head darts a half dozen directions before eyeing me. I have already slowed to a crawl. He mutters, "Sorry man" and rejoins the conversation and the journey down Lake St.  As I continued northbound on Dearborn bike lane I had equal thoughts of mirth and sympathy.

Priceless!
