Battle Scars

To whomever blew through the stop sign and plowed into Tom’s car:

YOU’RE MAKING OTHER CYCLISTS LOOK BAD.

Seriously, I’m an assertive rider, but I at least slow down through stop signs and keep my eyes open going through traffic lights. You are the reason that every few weeks I feel like the gas guzzlers are out to get me. It’s not the dozens of guys with lights, bright red windbreakers, and reflector anklets that drivers remember. No no no. It’s the one cyclist that didn’t even slow at a four-way stop, crashed into them, and yelled “asshole” as he rode away. You’re not helping anyone.

Yours,
-Alex
