POB's Dont Just Ride Cheap Bikes

POB's Dont Just Ride Cheap Bikes

Post by JPoulos4 » Thu, 11 Nov 1999 04:00:00


 Today while driving to work I learned that POB's do not just ride cheap bikes.
 There were two guys on Cannondale road bikes, helmets, winter shoe covers etc.
riding two a*** on a fairly busy road.  I passed them with a loud, long horn
blast then positioned myself so they could not pass between my truck and the
parked cars on the right.  They went around me on the left into the oncoming
traffic lane then proceeded to run the red light.  Idiots like this deserve to
get hit and they give cyclists a bad name.  If they were to get hit some of the
idiots here would find a way to blame the driver of the car.  The only good
point is that they rode on the right side unlike the POB's who ride cheap
bikes, dont speak English, are DUI's etc.

I don't know what a POB is.

You shouldn't need to blast your horn to pass a cyclist.  This is a sign of
aggression to me.

Cyclists should pass on the left, just like any other vehicle.  They
shouldn't be running red lights, but you shouldn't be squeezing them off the
road either (unless you plan to turn right).

Alex, remember that JPoulos451 is the idiot who keeps spewing anti-helmet
nonsense (he's the only member of Bicyclists Against Helmets) and who has stated
that AIDS is a plague sent to rid the world of ***s. His exact words
were:

"If you are trying to stop AIDS you must be gay and a sore ***is something you

should face regularly.  God sent AIDS like the plague to clean up His world so
why would anyone who lives right not want AIDS to clean up our world by
eliminating gays, druggies, fornicators, ***erers?"

He doesn't have a clue. Don't waste your breath on him.
