Last week I read an interview with bicyclists who complained about the resentment and lack of respect they receive from motorists on the highway, who often get impatient to pass their slower-speed bicycles.
The bicyclists were asked why they don't make use of the many scenic, paved bicycle and hiking trails that have been established through our rural and urban communities.
Their answer? They don't like sharing with people on foot, "because we'd have to cope with them slowing us down. You never can tell when you'll come around a bend or over a hill, and there those walkers and joggers will be in your way!"
DUH! Aren't they displaying the very attitude they complain about in motorists?
