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!

Working in NYC and living in Hoboken for 13 years, then moving to the suburbs in NJ for the last 2.5 years, I can say there is no difference in bad attitudes between urban and suburban cyclists. The attitude is the same. The only differences are in numbers. From here on out, I’ll call the urban cyclists lone wolf, and suburban cyclists wolf packs. Note: not all cyclists are generalized here, just the ones with bad attitudes. urban lone wolf backstory: moved to city with new job on a mission to transform the world rider: commutes everywhere under human power… Read more »

That’s why when they get into accidents, I don’t cry.

Hoboken is unique in allowing adult bicycle riders (vehicles) on sidewalks.

That is true, however there are sound bike rules for those riding on the sidewalks: If you must use the sidewalk then please take heed to the local laws: (1) No person shall ride a bicycle upon a sidewalk at a speed greater than the walking speed of pedestrians. (2) Persons riding a bicycle upon a sidewalk shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian and shall give an audible signal before overtaking and passing any pedestrian. (3) Persons riding a bicycle upon a sidewalk shall keep as close to the curb as is practicable to allow pedestrians to walk along… Read more »

lol! HPD is going to “enforce” bicycle laws? We can barely get these guys to get out of their cars except for shift change. Also, I have almost been struck twice by the mayor riding on the sidewalk down 1st street, so someone might want to inform the Queen that these laws exist.

The Hoboken police will enforce bicycle laws just like they enforce the double parking laws. [quote comment=”216939″]lol! HPD is going to “enforce” bicycle laws?

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… Read more »

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.
