With Daylight Savings now in full swing, the number of people exercising before & after work has increased dramatically. All credit to them…as I sit here wallowing in pseudo-sedentary, extra poundage! I envy them having the time for such pursuits.
However, I have said it before (on the BermudaSucks.com Forum) & I’ll say it again. Pedal cyclists need to be asked to not ride along certain stretches of road during peak Rush Hour. It causes more slow downs than the Grannies do, for goodness sake!
One guy today – obviously relieved of his driver’s license recently – was wobbling along North Shore this morning slowing everyone down. No helmet, loose clothes dangling over the sprockets, untied work boots & not even attempting to stay over to the left. He almost got whacked twice that I saw in the 30 seconds he was close to me.
I used to be one of these health-conscious folks, riding my mountain bike to Town & back during the Spring and Fall. But I always left Home before 7am and Town after 6pm, just to avoid the headaches.
