    can a bike be a chick magnets? do you as riders recieve praise forbeing environmentally clean in traveling? do you as a rider ever recieve hate from pedestrians and or drivers? Is there animosity towards bikes from other forms of transport other than cars? (roller blades, skateboard, scoote....)

    Yeah dude I forever get chased down by kids on roller blades who just wanna toss my bike in the river and strap skates to my feet. Hella hard to get away from too. They're everywhere!
    On the plus side the bike really is a chick magnet. This one time I was at a stop sign and these models pulled up in a ferrari. Naturally I bust right into my illest no handed / one foot track stand. Girls thought I was so fly just chillin there with my legs all spread out and my hands in the air. I even think one of em said out loud "oooooooo! I been waitin my whole life to find a skinny dude covered in retarded tattoos who spends a lot of his free time learning how to roll backwards on a bicycle and doesn't shower much. Holy shit are those NJS rims even? Player went ALL out! Let's see if he wants to do a threesome".

    That's what I remember at least. Good topic.

    My bike brings me a feeling that is better than what any prescription antidepressant could provide.

    I do recall years ago getting hooted and whistled at by a carload of high school gals. Mind you, I was 23 back then. Those days are gone.

    Sure, from the occasional driver. I guess I missed the memo, but apparently it's their road. :) A couple of years ago I almost received the so-called "door prize" from a couple of guys who sidled up to me in their car (at speed) and kicked the passenger side door open. Their timing was off and they missed. Usually, though, drivers like that will just chuck a flattened Coke can or flick a cigarette butt, but not that time.

    I don't see how safe it is to be mean to bikers. Once they're out of their car, drivers lose all their power. Then it's time for riders to pull out their chain whips, bats, hammers and any other weapon that can be weilded on a bike. How do they feel safe knowing that their car is their only protection and even then it could be easily damaged. I'm sure a cyclist can get away with a lot more crime than somebody riding a car in an urban environment, drivers should retract their actions of hate if they only knew.

    My bike brings quicker-than-car transportation through the city, a healthy hobby, great friends, and a healthy thing to spend money on.

    My bike gets me groceries. And lumber, firewood, and pretty much everything else. Heaviest single thing I've carried: a two-foot-long hunk of steel I-beam (about 60 pounds, I'd guess), balanced on my handlebars. Fun! Haven't had a car in years, and don't miss it at all.

    I mean it's so easy for bikers do damage cars. If I really hate this driver I can just toss stones at his windows and ride off to some sidewalk. He can't get me either, no liscence number on my bike and he won't be able to find me.

    Sidewalk eh? check your trusty old bike laws again. ILLEGAL to ride on a sidewalk, it is not called the sideride is it? I would throw rocks at the rider on the side walk. at least the car knows where it is supposed to be which is on the road!

    and if he really hated you he'd drive onto the sidewalk and kill you.

    some people are seriously dumb.
