Wow, can't wait to run out to volunteer to assist those that ride 5 abreast on our local roads, regularly run red lights and have a sense of entitlement as wide as a box car. The "tighties" as we call them feel that none of the rules of the road apply to them and even had the county put up signs that read, "Share the Road" for car drivers to see. This doesn't apply to them of course as they are special and above the law.

Doesn't Amgen make one of the drugs abused in blood doping? Isn't this like a steroid-maker sponsoring pro wrasslin' or the NFL, or maybe Pollos Hermanos underwriting a monster truck rally, if you know what I mean and I think that you do?

William, as a tightie, I appreciate your frustration with those riders who commit the infractions you describe. I'd be careful however to use such a wide brush. If so then I can assume that every Danville driver is threat to my safety as they roll through stop signs, accelrate to beat red lights (usually failing) and regularly drive over the SOLID white line that guards the bike lane because they are distracted or texting. I obey the rules of the road. It's to bad drivers don't feel an obligation to do the same.
As for Carninal - ignorance is bliss.
