Bike rage

May 16th, 2008

Those who know me, know that I’m quite a supporter of cycling. And that I try to get car-users to understand cyclists when they’re mad about something. Even yesterday I had a discussion about this.

Apparently, the car-user vs. cyclist conflict isn’t limited to Belgium: it is also known in San Francisco. Cyclists around the world, unite! ;-)

There’s only one message to car-users: try using a bike yourself for a few days. Really. During rush hour on a working day. It’s the only way to understand a cyclist’s reaction. Oh: and try to survive the experiment.

    Met de fiets rijden is het gevaarlijkste wat ge kunt doen op den openbare weg IMO. :)

    You are right! But it works in both directions. The only way to understand both is to "be" both in traffic. (speaking of experience here) cheers, paul

    Hier in Brussel bergaf de Rogierlaan naar het Noord-station, slalommend tussen de auto's, ... kicken! Maar soms een beetje gevaarlijk ook. Zou ik me dan toch maar terug een helm aanschaffen?
