Hi, I live in Boston, and I believe that bikes on the road are spoiling our way of life. They are
not only in the way, but cause a road hazard for drivers. I can't even count the times that I have
nearly been run over by a selfish roadie while walking through the crosswalk ( that's not a joke,
I've had a lot of close calls walking to work). They are extremely dangerous and I believe that we
should let the few bad apples that don't follow the rules spoil it for everyone. After all, boycotts
and banning are so much more effective than education, right?

Anyone want to sign my petition?

Thank you

You just moved to Boston at the beginning of this year so the bikes were there long before you were.
Move if you don't like them . Problem solved.

So are you trying to promote an un-healthier lifestyle? Make all of the people who commute to work
everyday buy a car, and pollute the world? Will they have to cancel the Tour de' France this year?
Some people have to ride the road to get to the trail head.

WOW!

surprised natural selection hasn't picked this one off yet...

Folks is it just me or did everyone miss this? From this last comment I really think this was a
'tongue-in-cheek' post, not to be taken seriously.

Perhaps I'm wrong.....wouldn't be the first time.

Now go out and hug some damn trees!!!!!!!!

Peace, Bill The mind serves properly as a window glass rather than as a reflector, that is, the mind
should give an immediate view instead of an interpretation of the world.

Isn't getting bikes off the road largely what this group is about anyway? ;-)

If you ever attempt newsgroup sarcasm again, you'll want to do it with a little less finesse and a
lot more bludgeon.

Yeah, and a special thank you to you for not reading the whole message and making my day truly
special. In case you ever decide to read the entire message, it is a JOKE! Apparently my attempt at
sarcasm fell short, but I really don't appreciate being told to **** off by someone who can't finish
reading an entire paragraph. And don't ever call me a troll. I'd rather be called a scummy pig or a
conservative, anything but a troll. The **** off part was truly original, though.

One of my armpit smells and the other does not. I wash and treat each armpit the same. I call one
armit the "rouge pit", and I make sure that when riding on roads that shirt sleeve is well
ventilated so the green air flows into car windows.
