From what I understand the bicycle lobby wants to bring the Netherlands dutch type of bicycling here where motorists are made to be subservient to bicyclists. This won’t work any where in America, mostly due to cyclists bad arrogant attitudes towards those that drive a personal motor vehicle.
They think if they can change the meaning of words that they can trick everyone out of their personal vehicles and on to a bicycle. Who in the hell wants to go BACKWARDS, transportation wise, & go back to a bicycle ( bicycles are for children, and these adult cyclists act like a children too )? Who the hell actually wants to ride a bicycle in rain, snow, sleet, fog, storms, hail, in heat & humidity, and pedaling up hilly roads, that isn’t a pretentious stuck up trendy hipster?
Bicycling is not a good use of ones time either, anyone that has actual things to do likely isn’t going to choose a bicycle to go grocery shopping, or pick up drywall, plywood, or have a load of (4) 38 pound boxes of cat litter, which would be 152 pounds of cat litter to be exact. Do people really want to try this on a bicycle, especially in above mentioned weather!?
Since the WBF doesn’t let a crisis go to waste. I am not going to skip posting wrong way bicycling. Speaking of not letting a crisis go to waste, I found a video on youtube that is chilling. It is exactly how bicycle advocacy works. That is the “Chicago way” right?
Any ways, here is the wrong way bicycling. West Custer & Expo Dr ( near Expo Dr )
This time it was on the north end of Manitowoc ( I think it was on Friday the 29th ), Fairmont & N. 23. Caught cyclist riding on the wrong side of the road. These problem cyclists are going to roll back any progress made, I strongly recommend the good bicyclists out there to get on these unlawful cyclists, as the bicycle lobby doesn’t want to admit these kind of cyclists exist, or pressure the wisconsin bike federation to come to these communities to educate how to ride a bicycle on the road ways properly.
As usual the late evenings on Fridays & the weekend ( even during the week too ) are quite active with problems.
According to what came over the scanner about 11:45 PM There was 4 kids walking down the middle of the road on hamilton reports of a rock thrown at a car, maybe they were trying to chase the pokemon off?
Here is an interesting perspective from a lefty website
Someone distracted by pokemon hit by a car.
Here is another article on pokemon.
Not sure of the exact day this happened, but what is up with these bicyclists & riding with no hands on the handle bar? I would think it is unlawful to ride a bicycle no handed ( I will have to search the city ordinances for bicycling laws ). It is almost every time I go out that I see these bicyclists engaged in stupidity & self endangerment….But but but it’s those people that are in the motor vehicles that are always the problem, right bicyclists?
On Friday evening close to about 10pm, I caught a bicyclist no lights on bicycle while riding on the wrong side of the road!
This happened on Grand Ave right near Pietroske car lot.
The city has a bicyclist problem, it is almost every time I go out I see people on bicyclists endangering themselves, riding the wrong way on the road, riding with no hands on handle bars, riding with no hands on handle bars holding their phone looking down at it.
I saw another bicyclist riding no handed operating a cellphone riding down the sidewalk going west on waldo blvd about 6:30 pm July 5 ’16. I have no video of this sighting, which is very disappointing. I always know that these bicyclists are so arrogant they will continue to do this very stupid stuff. Hopefully some innocent driver doesn’t get blamed if the cyclist loses control.
