Idiots amoung us -- True story

Emailed to us from a reader... idiots!

Location: Republic of Boulder

Last Saturday two riders on mountain bikes (can’t recall if they were front or full suspension) decided to ride down the middle of a neighborhood street. After following behind them, for a block or so, I gave them a honk to let them know a car was behind them. You know, kinda like when you’re on a bike and you say “on your left” to upcoming pedestrians. Next thing I know, as I turn into my complex, the male rider came pedaling quickly and screaming profanities. (Sidenote: I'm a 5'3" female and the rider was over over 6'). He wanted me to get out of my car and "fight" me. Instead I stayed inside my car,as he continued to yell at me, and he decided to punch my windshield and shatter it.

I love to ride and share the road, but DUDE, lay off the steroids and maybe your male genital will come back.

If you happen to know a Caucasian, probably around 6'2", salt and pepper scruf with closely shaved hair, balding on top and likes to wear board shorts on his ride, please contact me at

It seems crazy that some guy

It seems crazy that some guy would smash your windshield and then want to fight you.
I just don't understand people these days anymore. Did you have a camera to take his picture?
I would 'have' just called the cops & waited for them to show up! I am glad you are okay.
Wish I was there to help you.

It's a fiction that there

It's a fiction that there are two distinct groups, one being Motorists and the other Cyclists. As if they were different species, one a species of aggro pickup-driving rednecks and the other a species of eco-hipster fixie scofflaws.

The fact is that both groups embody elements of greater humanity, of which there is no shortage of both cool people and total a-holes. Sorry that you ran into the latter.

I'm calling BS

unless you had a rather large crack in your windshield, or the cyclist had a piece of pipe or a wrench or something like that, there is NO way he broke your windshield w/ one punch without putting himself in the ER with a broken hand. Sorry, but I ain't buying it.
