Anti-bicyclist blog emerges

I Hate Bicyclists blog documents biker nonsense

As most of you know – common sense rules here on Hoboken411, not government laws and other “control mechanisms” designed to not only frustrate the populous, but snag valuable monetary units from their pockets!

That said, you might be irritated at our often “common sense” oriented posts, that often leave the “needy idiots” like bicyclists, environmentalists, and other “radical” groups behind – because we don’t feel they benefit society one iota!

Regardless of what stance you take – you might get some true entertainment from a new blog I discovered this week – I Hate Bicyclists.

If you really hate bicycles – you start a blog about it

Sheer brilliance in my opinion – he deconstructs various dopey incidents in the news that revolve around obnoxious entitled bikers, such as:

My favorite post was how he deconstructed a “helpful list” from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette – which detailed a dozen “tips” from some leftist biker – such as:

3. Slow down and pass with care. PA law requires a minimum passing buffer of four feet.

The I Hate Bicyclists site responded as follows to this particular point (out of many…):

3. Slow down and Pass with care. PA law requires a minimum passing buffer Honk at the bicyclist blocking your path until he or she pulls over at least four feet.

  • Some bicyclists still seem to be unaware that they’re driving 25 lb brittle things that could be destroyed in a second by a car. Honk at them until they get that through their f*cking skull.

ENJOY MASSIVELY!

Yes bike lanes do provide a safe space on the roadway for a bicyclist to coexist among motor vehicles allowing traveling from point A to point B. Bike lanes actually make the roadways safer for everyone. According to the NYC DOT, pedestrian crashes on streets with bike lanes are 40% less deadly because bike lanes have “a calming effect, lowering speeds and increasing driver attention.” It has been proven that by making a roadway appear narrower for the motorist their speed will decrease as well.

Our country is really the only developed nation that has not embraced the bicycle at early childhood as many European countries to. In the Netherlands school children learn how to safely ride and maneuver a bicycle at an early age. By the time they grow up and become motorists they fully understand how to safely coexist as they have been behind the handlebars and the steering wheel. Point is we can coexist peacefully.

Just like there are a few bad egg cyclists, there are bad egg motorists. For the most part we can get along and share the roadways.

I agree with not allowing the views of radical groups on here, like Libertarians, those who don’t believe in global warming or recycling, and right-wingers.

Oh wait, the “common sense” only applies one direction? I guess I misunderstood.

pmpersiani, your post attempts to create the invisible target. Clearly, the blogger use satire and hyperbole to avoid giving a pass to the guilty group of cyclists out there who make the rest of the cyclists look bad. By saying you shouldn’t call out any of them, it enables them. Bad cyclists, drivers, pedestrians and nose picker flickers should all understand the consequences.

For a more balanced view of cyclists, please check out this article from today’s Gothamist.

Also, why anyone would want to spend their time and efforts focusing on hating anything is beyond me.

If the whole world was balanced, what a boring place it’d be. So, pmpersiani, you don’t hate anything? Certain groups need some knocking back to earth..[quote comment=”216876″]For a more balanced view of cyclists, please check out this article from today’s Gothamist.Also, why anyone would want to spend their time and efforts focusing on hating anything is beyond me.[/quote]

I am not trying to suggest that everyone in the world needs to love each other. And yes there are people or things that annoy, anger, or even frighten me, but hate is a very powerful and negative emotion and I think it is something that should be avoided.

I am especially wary of painting entire groups of people with the same brush for any reason. I am sure the creator of the I Hate Bicyclists blog, along with other people who make similar comments, are willing to acknowledge that not every cyclist is evil, but when statements like those on the blog are made it does no good for anyone.

I am not a blogger, but I assume running a blog takes a certain amount of time and effort. I just have trouble seeing how dedicating a blog to hating anything is a useful way of allocating those resources.

Finally, I should also state that I am a cyclist. I do get frustrated by the behavior I see from other cyclists. Some of it is selfish, dangerous, or just stupid. I also drive a car, walk, run, and ride trains to get places. I see people doing selfish, dangerous, and stupid acts in all of those places too. Some individuals are jerks. They come in all shapes and sizes and use all different methods to get around.[quote comment=”216877″]If the whole world was balanced, what a boring place it’d be.
