Wouldn't have wanted to go into his ER in a bicycle helmet, though.

No. But his being in a jail cell has lessened the chances of a bicyclist having to go to the ER.

That only confirms that his ego and self-image were already inflated to where he thought the law didn't apply to him. This wasn't his first issue with cyclists.

We all have occasional issues - doesn't matter if we're in a car, on a motorcycle or on a bicycle. I suspect that if you're someone who is always having issues with another particular class, you may want to examine your own actions first.

I've got just over 3,000 cycling miles YTD and I can count the number of issues I've had with motorists while on the bicycle on 1 hand. On the other hand, there aren't enough hands in the room to count the number of issues I've had with other drivers while driving myself. I'm probably one of the more aggressive hybrid-driving-HOV-lane-using fools you'll ever see. And yes, that's mostly on me. I take responsibility for it too.


Of course, I could hit while riding the bike tomorrow and die too.

Here's a new Leadville update, for anyone interested. The CTS camp is highly recommended.

I think you did read it correctly. Piss off the motoring public and expect aggravated assault in the form of a car brake checking you...copy that. I think a violent felony is appropriate given the circumstances, after all they bring it on themselves.

I've lost the subject-verb agreement in your last statement. Who brought what on themselves? The dr. who is going to jail for passing and then causing an accident while injuring two cyclists OR the cyclists who were riding in a legal manner?

It was a fragmented thought. How one can lay any blame on the cyclists for such a violent act ("...riders do bring this on themselves") is absurd. Regardless of how the cyclists were riding, agg. assault with a vehicle is an egregious response.

I thought the first bridge looked familiar, then the Notch Road sign, but Blair Bridge confirmed it. Nice ride! Been 25 years since I did that one, glad to see the road connecting SN road to 175 at Wishman Hill is still open. I'll be there in a coupla weeks showing my kids Big Rock and all the other Mad River swimming holes.

Thanks - I think the punishment fit the crime and for the icing on the cake, I'm sure a civil action will quickly follow.

(I'm in Ahwatukee - have recently started riding the Saturday morning rides with the PMBC - if you're on any of these, look for me - a blue recumbent.)

Good deal - I'm taking a week off the bike and that ends Saturday. After that, I'm on Pecos and other parts of Ahwatukee from roughly 0430 to 0530 most morning at least until the heat breaks and I can ride after work. Hope to see you out - safe riding otherwise.

Thumbs down Some people take this stuff too seriously...



The text underneath says that he was inconsolable after losing the race because the cleat on his shoe came loose from the pedal.
