The Bike riders in Oak Park, IL

Can’t stand the bike riders out here, just inconsiderate. Funny how there are bike lanes yet I had to drive behind two riders who were in the middle of the street for more than three blocks. Like in the middle riding through only two-way stop signs at a four-way intersection like they really owned the whole road and by breaking the rules of the road they were getting to their destination faster than anyone else. It was like they were trying to race me and everyone in a car, SUV or minivan.

The fun part was when they finally had to yield at an intersection or get hit. They got upset at this po dunk in an old ass pickup truck and the male bike rider said some shit to get the pickup driver to keep inching forward on them and start him to get out of the truck. Maybe his female companion saw deliverance and decided to talk her buddy from making a big mistake with tumbling with the pickup truck dude or maybe she didn’t want to explain how they were the ones not obeying the rules of the road to the cops.

Either way , hey begrudgingly started back to peddling as I passed them by on my way back from lunch (I was late, but I snuck in), I gave the car a little gas so it could startle them as I passed them up for once in eight blocks. I flashed them a smile and a middle finger for their troubles, like anyone on the road from soccer moms and their minivans to jerk bicycle riders. If you are rude expect for someone to be rude back.
