This is also a great reminder that a-holes are everywhere, and they make good people like us, wring our hands and confer with one another, and they don't f-ing care. I guess we have to figure out ways to make them care...oh yea laws and trail closures and some sort of a policing entity, which sucks to say. I am reminded of how I was road cycling a couple of years back. Came to the stop sign at a busy 4 way stop. I stopped for my turn, suddenly I'm nearly knocked off my bike and I feel a body brushing against mine. A fellow cyclist has chosen to squeeze between me and the car to my left blows the stop sign, turning left into the intersection all the sounds of honking cars and yelling motorists. This is the closest I've ever come to chasing down a fellow cyclist for the purpose of abusing them. My better nature prevailed (for all I knew he was also violent in addition to being an a-hole) but basically, this guy was a fellow cyclist, a dangerous ass-hat, and the drivers did not care who was who we all look alike on bikes with helmets and goggles. The pedestrians feel the same way about us.
