Friday’s as good as any day to watch videos and feel morally superior…

 

It’s Friday, and I need to keep things light today. Time is short, so we might as well have a few laughs while we can.

I know most of you have probably seen this already, but, although it’s a pretty cheap shot on a cycling-related website and isn’t really all that helpful in fostering a positive relationship between cyclists and motorists… it’s still pretty amusing. And true, in too many cases.

In the spirit of fairness, I’ll follow it up with the video below. Because cyclists can be dicks too. Because they’re people. And people can be dicks no matter how they get around.

You know what? Although reckless drivers are clearly more dangerous and pose the bigger problem – by far – I actually get more annoyed with twats like Notorious Zee (who I’m sure has given himself the nickname, because, obviously, he’s so well-known…), because while drivers can be homicidal maniacs, they never (well, rarely) actually try to justify it with some sort of moral high-ground. Oh, they say that the roads belong to them, and that obviously they pay for them out of their own checkbooks, and all of the other tired old cliches, but when cyclists like this open their mouths, something to do with how much better they are and how they are making the world a better place usually starts dribbling down their chins…

…by making every single person they come across subservient to their over-inflated ego. By force. And claiming the moral high-ground.

Anyway, now we’re even.

Eh, why not one more quick one for the road…

Enjoy your weekend…
