A decent local 100 mile ride marred only by what I call a suicide prone idiot, why? I'm doing 5 over the limit only to be passed by that idiot on a CURVE over the DOUBLE YELLOW lines, what did that get him, NADA as I pulled up to the stop sign just as he pulled away, he couldn't quite get around another car in front of him. The end of a day in traffic? hardly on the way home from taking my wife shopping we had ANOTHER IDIOT, this time the double yellow was going over hills, didn't make a bit of difference to this one either and in the end I had to slow up as he turned into a driveway. Whatever was so important to these two I can't believe they made it without harming someone.

There's IDIOTS all over the place.
I had an IDIOT pass me in town in a 30 zone. I was doing about 32 and he blew by me in an old rusty no muffler pickup only to take a right at the next intersection and pull into a parking lot. I saw him coming up behind me fast so I laid my head on the headrest just in case. I thought maybe, just maybe, an emergency. But when he got out of the pickup he was walking at a normal pace and not running.

Yep, there are idiots everywhere.
I'm not adverse to a bit of speed, but there is a time and place for everything.

Must be Monday the sun is out. Jerks are everywhere. Tailgaters are the worst.
I'm riding behind 2-3 cars and keeping a nice space and someones to close. What are they thinking?
There is no way to pass us all or get anywhere faster. Happened to me on Saturday.
Somehow my water bottle bounced out of cup holder bounce and landed in front of them.
Got a little space after that.

I was WALKING the other day and a woman in a minivan came towards me up a hill and she was moving fast. Worse, she was looking DOWN at her phone I suppose. Had I been crossing the road in front of her she never would have seen me...  Scary out there folks, stay alert.
