To the woman driving a Mercedes on Campus Drive this morning ...around 11:30 who told me “I really think you should be on the sidewalk":
a) That’s just, like, your opinion, man.
b) According to the Vehicle Code, cyclists are allowed on the street, no matter how slow they are going, no matter how narrow the lane, no matter how many pounds of kid they are towing in a trailer behind them.
c) I didn’t know the construction was going to end the damn bike lane and trap me between a concrete wall and big old median.
d) It’s Sunday, for Pete’s sake. Will you just, ah, take it easy, man??
