On past rides a handful of cyclists with apparent infantile disorders have aggressively provoked confrontations with motorists, mass transit users and pedestrians. The following is a partial list of such actions. Advocates of such behavior have this opportunity to explain logically why such practices are tactically prudent. Please use logic in your response, refraining from such emotional arguments as "cars are killing the planet!". Be clear and concise if possible. Have fun.
1.Riding headlong into oncoming traffic.
While at first, this appears to be nothing more than aggro kids showing their friends how brave they are, on closer inspection it still appears to be that.
2.Swamping cars, then pounding on them because they are in the way.
Ah, this one is classic. Like grabbing your little brothers wrist and hitting his head with his hand while asking repeatedly "Why are you hitting yourself?"
3.Blocking busses or MAX
More of the "2 wheels good - 4 wheels bad" philosophy?
4.Swamping pedestrians in crosswalk
What can I say?
