Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I don’t get the anger toward cyclist so many drivers have. You have to wait 10-15 seconds to get around someone on a bike normally, chill out.

Set out for a nice 50 mile ride. About a half hour in, clouds moved in and gave me some nice shade. Shortly after that, **** got windy and some not amused clouds rolled in from the west and north (I was heading west at the time). Yeah, that was my cue to cut it short and head back. Got home before the rain and 30 miles was better than nuthin'.

People get nuts under pressure and this has been so for some time as evidenced by the incidence of road rage seen. Worst, there is no push to lessen that pressure from the masterminds in government.

Not for nuthin', but I think that this says less about driver/cyclist attitude and more about an absurd willingness to escalate because you think that you're holding the trump card in your pocket/holster.

Sounds like someone thought they had that card, but found out they brought a knife to a.......

Pissed off people wear me out.

I had thought I had calmed down some in my old age. But it's clear that I've become re-radicalized. I will attempt to keep it to myself. Here, guns are for the law and the cartels.
