There ARE Trails For That

Posted on May 16, 2009. Filed under: Mommy Moments, Things That Irritate Me |

We live a rather hilly part of Iowa, which apparently makes for good bike riding — both the motorcycle and pedal kind.  But the kind I’m referring to today is pedal biking. 

Now – here’s what I don’t understand.  This morning within 10 miles of curvy winding hilly roads, I counted 75 bikers on the highway.  A 2-lane highway without much of a shoulder.  Why.  WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY????? Yet here they are wearing their stupid day-glo nylon clothes with butt pads.  Yes, this irritates me greatly.  I honestly don’t know why they are allowed on highways, especially ones like this.  The state posts minimum speeds for cars.  Why?  Because it’s dangerous to have people on the roads going slower than the minimum speed.  I seriously would support a law to get bikers off the highways and back onto the trails where they belong.  Where it is safer for everyone. 

Yeah – I probably po’d a few people with this.  Guess what.  I don’t care.  Get off the roads until you learn to pedal 60 mph.
