Colebrook has 2200 people but we have the blessing of the bikes in the summer and the sno-deo in the winter. This group is very noisy, it sounds like CA-CHING. The money that is dropped into our little town is worth the aggravation. Each event brings in 10-20000 people who spend their hard earned money in our little. I say let them come .

im a big road cyclist and can tell you that 90% of the time a motorcycle passes me, they make sure to try and scare the hell out of me. im used to it now so it doesnt scare me, but still annoying as ****. so i think its fair to say that for tthe most part, bikers are jerkoffs

I thought bicycles were supposed to ride against the traffic, not with the flow of traffic. I've seen a few bicyclist bumped by cars down here. At least you have the winter season that you dont have to deal with those nasty bikers. If you happen to be out jogging watch out for those snowmobilers . They can be a rough bunch also.

When I am not harassing bicyclists or annoying quiet residential neighborhoods, I like to take a little quiet time and rob convenience stores and ravish your daughters

Now let's look at cyclists.

They run red lights
ride on the sidewalks meant for pedestrians
ride against the flow of traffic
Under aged rider regularly disobey the helmet law requirement
( how many times have you seen anyone cited for this btw? )
Do not use proper lighting for night riding
turn without signaling
Dart in front of you without warning
ride two abreast in the middle of the road
in general disobey and ignore most every rule of the road
Like moped riders, there are many cyclists out there who are riding simply for the reason
that they lost their drivers license because of a DUI, is it any wonder that most people
who do not cycle think that the majority are jerkoffs?
Now calling the majority of cyclists based on teh actions of a few simply is not fair, but it is the preception
of the public at large.

nah. pedestrians walk against traffic, so you can see them (hopefully they'll walk on the sidewalk if there is one, but a lot don't!). all wheeled traffic: cars, bicycles, motorcycles, mopeds.... (strollers exempt), is supposed to go the same direction and obey traffic lights and signs.

Snowmobile trails are for sledders. All other users should yield, its common sense.

It just seemed fitting that there be an image to go with the title. Since I don't have any swarm pictures in my collection I had to rely on the net

Bikers probably raise more money for charitable concerns than most groups. Bicyclists?? Not so much.

i think thats fairly accurate. however i dont think we fit the "yee haw" group, whose sole purpose is to act tough and annoy people
