So I've finally summoned the motivation to start bike commuting, which I've been doing for the past couple of weeks. I accept the fact that I'm not in great shape and will be one of the slower ones for awhile. But what is the deal with all the cyclists who blow right through stop signs and squeeze through tight spaces between cars and other queued-up cyclists? I'll either stop or come to a very slow roll at a stop sign but then some be-spandexed gal or dude will blow right past me and I'll feel like a tool. Should I not stop? Should I not follow the rules? Should I weave in and around cars and slower cyclists or what?
