Don't Get Violent, Don't Stoop to Their Level
Cyclists frequently threaten me. I've received death threats, cyclists have told my wife they are going to rape her. And that is just the beginning of the hate cyclists spew at those who disagree with them. Go back and ready every post on this blog. In all cases we at Spare the Road always preach safety and non-violence. One of the reasons we want to get cyclists off the roads is so we can create friendlier and safer streets for us all. Not everyone shares our view though. Violence against cyclists seems to be a growing trend. This is sad. Many people see no other choice but to resort to the same dirty and violent tactics cyclists do. Look, I get that it's a war out there. Cyclists are legislating themselves more and more power on the roads, including the power to kill others, and it's frustrating and scary out there for people with jobs, families, and lives. But we can do this non-violently. Call you local politicians and let them know you want cyclists off the streets. Stop with the violence please.
