The guy riding his bike at 15th and Weidler during lunch today....yes, your chrome bag matches your bike frame perfectly, your girlfriends jeans you wore were perfectly cut into jorts, and you had the perfect little hat under your helmet. Yes, you were mighty awesome. Still, being an entitled dick and yelling at the middle aged woman with every bad word your daddy taught you is kinda lame, she did not cut you off, you sped up to the intersection hoping she would turn right, past your beloved bike lane. And guess what, she almost did, but instead stopped and looked at you puzzled, like the rest of us. Riding a bike does not mean you are better, or more entitled by nature. It means you like bikes, so stop being a dick.
