The arrogant bicyclist

Portland is a big town for bicycles, so it's not surprising there are a few arrogant riders around. Met up with one on the bus to the university this morning. Taking up a narrow road just ahead of our bus, refusing to pull over to the shoulder when it was available so the bus could pass. At a stop sign, instead of pulling over so the bus could come alongside and pass, the rider when through without stopping. Reminded me of a rider who ran a red light so that I almost hit him, then gave me the finger for following traffic rules! Some of these riders embrace such green moral superiority that they believe the rules don't apply to them.

In time, the guy turned off and we could continue on our way.
