Cyclists Take to the Highways

In what can only be a campaign to be the most annoying and smug group of people in the whole world, a mass of bike riders have taken to one of the nation's busiest stretches of highway to prove a point.

Last Friday, the "Crimanimals" took the I-10 freeway in Los Angeles buzzing around gridlocked traffic to show that bikes are better. "The freeway is the last stronghold of the car, so when you've got 30 cyclists flying down the lanes, you feel like General Custer, you feel like the good guys," said Alex Cantarero.

Click the jump for a Dennis Miller style rant.

Now, I don't want to get off on a rant here, but…

Roads were built for cars. Paved surfaces were created so that cars would have a way to get around. Bikes do not belong on roads. Bikes sure as heckfire don't belong on highways. Yeah, you might be able to make time in gridlocked traffic, but that's a function of size and has nothing to do with gas or pollution. Plus, I'd like to see these neoprene-pantsed fancy-jersey wearing pedal pushers taking to the highway when it's not rush hour. There'd be a fair amount of smearage. And by the way, feeling like General Custer is not a good thing, unless you like graduating last in your class, killing thousands of Indians and their horses, and being shot and scalped by Sioux.

Let's be real. Yes, bikes are good for some things and there should be room made on the roads for people who want to pollute less and take way longer to get to their destination. But being a pack of smug law-breaking scrotes is going to prove nothing and if I happen to see someone cycling on The 10 on my way home, I'm gonna slow down to 10 miles an hour on the shoulder behind him/her and just barely let my bumper brush their back tire until it comes to a stop. Then I'm going to lay on the horn for 7 minutes and scream out the window that "I'm an American" while blasting Lee Greenwood.

Of course that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.
