Bikers should ‘grab a brain’

Spandex + pedal bike = lack of brain activity. There is overwhelming proof in ongoing studies about pedal bikers developing a common disease called I'velostmycommonsensesinceIboughtmybikealitis.

There is overwhelming proof in ongoing studies about pedal bikers developing a common disease called I’velostmycommonsensesinceIboughtmybikealitis.

As we all know, it was very icy Tuesday morning. I have a 10-minute drive on the highway and in that short time I witnessed three pedal bikers riding in the middle of the highway, forcing vehicles into oncoming traffic and risking driving off the slippery highway.

I, as well as most Yukoners, do not understand you demented people. If we hit you, we have to live with that for the rest of our lives. That or having a head-on collision with traffic resulting in death.

Do you really want to be responsible for that? Because you are giving us no choice in the matter, I for one am not putting up with this anymore. If the law isn’t going to take care of this, I guess we will have to deal with it in the old-fashioned way.

The roads and highways are for vehicles and unless you are one, stay the hell off. You are supposed to be riding single file, and you do not obey that law either, and take up the whole side of the highway.

There is a cure for this disease. It’s called grab a brain.
