One Way To Death

Have you ever been in a car and you see another automobile turn the wrong way down a one-way?  They are in danger without realizing it, so what do you do?  You flash your lights, honk your horn, and yell at them to try to get their attention, right?   Well, that's what I did to this guy who I saw early Friday morning flying down Union the wrong way in the bicycle lane.  He didn't seem to get it.  He just looked at me and smiled while I yelled "you're going the wrong way, you're going to die".
Why do most Puebloans think you're suppose to ride against traffic?

  1. This is one of my huge pet peeves. A bike lane is like a vehicle lane: go the direction of traffic. Argh! And I hate when bikes don't stop at red lights. There. I've vented, too.

  2. Hello, I am an avid bike enthusiast. I own a 2006 KHS flite 100 fixed gear, a 1978 Univega Specialissma, a 1996 Gary Fisher Marlin, a 1980 Centurion Omega, and a 1984 Centurion Accordo. I actually am guilty of this, the reason why is; i was hit by a car when I was riding in the CORRECT BIKE LANE. I didnt see him coming and I couldnt get out of the way. I now intentionally ride in the WRONG BIKE LANE so that I can see if a car is going to hit me or not. It has actually saved me more than not. Puebloans dont understand the concept of a SHARROW. I would rather piss off a few cyclists and bruise their ego than get hit by another car. That being said, hopefully more drivers in this town will acknowlege this and I can begin my safe daily riding on the correct side of the road and not ride in fear of what is behind me. p.s. bike mirrors are junk
