I know you're running late. I am too. Its 9am and the Hawthorne bridge is up. There is a whole congregation of people waiting for the bridge to come back down. Inching your bike up through the crowd bit by bit so you can be at the "front" of the group isn't just annoying, its rude. Especially more so when you get in front of the pack and then slow us all down because your fixed gear tops out at 14mph. So you end up pedaling a hundred times faster than what even looks possible to stay in front of me. Well.. congratulations, jackass. You won the Hawthorne Half-Bridge Race.
