bi+ch in a suv

To the soccer mom in the white volvo xc90:

I'm not sure what you were thinking this morning when you came around to pass all four of us cyclists on the left at a STOP sign in the Starbucks parking lot. Hello??? I liked how you completely ignored our waving and signaling trying to get you to notice us so you didn't run us over. I even saw you shaking your head in disapproval..I know what you're thinking..how dare 4 cyclists leave the Starbucks on BIKES?! And, pull up to a STOP sign?! Why are there cyclists on the road anyway? The road is for cars and bikes should be on sidewalks.

Next time I should throw my bottle at your stupid SUV, I'm sure it can take it. Have a nice day.

-------------------------------------

aaaah...nice ride this AM on the rail trail with eddie, neal, and shannon. we planned to do a new 60 mile route but neal and shannon had to get back early. so, instead, we sat around starbucks for a while and chatted, then shannon worked on the lump in my quad (from the pre-lumberjack crash)--thanks shannon! we got in about 3.5 on the road bikes and i think i'm a bit worn out now!

Man, throwing a water bottle is a good idea! Though, I would prefer to throw a pedal wrench, would do a little more damage. I would never really do it, but there have been times when I wish I had a crowbar...

yeah, too bad i can't think quickly enough. this sort of stuff happens every time i ride the road in ATL, but this one was on another level of stupidity and ignorance..it just really struck a nerve with me..obviously! :)

Throw a water bottle full of rocks! That would get your message across!

Can we start calling them baseball moms? I hate to think my beloved soccer gets all the negative press of beyotches that have no business in vehicles too big for them to handle.

Next time unclip and cleat her car. Like keying, but even more satisfying!
