    What did someone yell at you?

    I usually don't get many yellers, especially in winter, but got a couple in the last week. Of course these comments are much funnier and more intelligible inside the car, but I think I got:
    "Shift!!!...or was that Shi*???
    Last week I think it was Go Faster, but perhaps it was Go F Yourself!

    "Get on the sidewalk, Lance!"

    and just last week:

    "It's called a CROSS F*&%ING WALK!!!"

    I had a heckler once at a bike light. As the light went red for him and a carefully progressed across the intersection, he went on a tirade about my shorts and clothes and my bike and my manhood. I just laughed it off and waved gaily back. He continued to yell as his light went green and he took off down the street perpendicular to mine. Weirdest thing I have ever had.

    Felt like I was at a stand up session at a Laughs or something.

    And you'd be arrested if you told him the same thing.

    Fun thread

    I ride with ear buds (I know, I know cars are attracted to cyclists with ear buds and will not crash into you if you can hear them coming... or something like that... anyway) so I can't hear the inane crap that people yell at me and what I do hear I can't remember. Usually it is something like yaaaaaahhaaaahhhaaa. Car yellers aren't usually that articulate.

    Funny, I was thinking of starting a similar thread on my ride home when somebody got right up aside of me and gave a long honk. I was thinking it would be interesting to know what is going on inside their head when they do it. I've come up with:
    • >They are trying to help by letting me know they are there, not that helpful.
    • >They entertain themselves by startling people, they must lead rich lives.
    • >They are weak souls and being in a car gives them power, and a quick getaway.
    • >They are just A-holes, seems most likely.

    Sometime I need to catch up to them and ask.

    "RRRRAAAAAHHHHHHH" (guttural scream)
    "WOOF!" (dog hanging out the window, almost scared me onto the sidewalk)
    "Hey f@ggot!"
    "Get on the sidewalk!"
    "MUUUPHEWWWW!" (general unintelligible doppler-affected scream at 40+MPH)

    "It's called a CROSS F*&%ING WALK!!!"
    I get that one a lot at the light right up the street from my house. I have three steel bikes and only one of them will sometimes trip the sensor so I hit the button at the cross walk. Plenty of people yell stuff about my "cool" bike when I am riding one of my recumbents.

    I also had an old crone tell me to get off her effing road a while back. I took the lane on a very short bridge and she couldn't wait so she went halfway into the oncoming lane of traffic to pass me. I just smiled and told her to have a nice day!

    "You have to stop too" - from a driver as I blew a stop sign
    "You're making us all look bad" - from a person on an e-bike, as I blew a stoplight
    "Get off the road, cyclist" - from a passenger as i was JRA

    The last one was funny, because at first I was like, what?! No legitimately angry motorist would refer to me as a "cyclist." Sure enough, I discovered it was a co-worker of mine joking around.

    It's very snowy/wintery here, so most people who see me commuting 5+ miles a day on a bike think I'm crazy.

    But I had some woman have the nerve to tell me that riding that "thing" to work is very un-professional.

    I asked her how so, she couldn't give me any valid reasons after I pointed out that I do get to work on time, I don't smell when I get there, how does riding a bicycle effect job performance and that given your weight, you'd actually benefit from riding one, and I promptly left the store to a "F*ck you!"

    But I really didn't care. If you dish out the hate, you better be willing to receive the ball back in your court if you ask me.

    I felt my point had been made.


    I love heckling idiots who somehow think they're in the right for no reason. "Ride on the sidewalk @ss hole!!" Which I find funny, because it's illegal for cyclists to ride on many sidewalks in the town. Not my fault the city council voted that way. You don't like it, go get the law changed.

    yup.
    And!, I'd like to point out that riding on the sideWALK is more dangerous anyhow - not just to the cyclist, but to PEDs

    I thought this one was kinda funny:..I was carrying my bike to the gas station to get the tire pumped up (I was a slacker)..and he yelled at me "You're supposed to ride it"

    another situation some guy yelling at me for cutting thru traffic (that was at a stand still)...He yelled "you're not supposed to cut thru traffic like that"...I politely told him to f*ck off...this was in my angst filled youth in the early 90s.

    I also had a guy throw a beer can (full) at me...and missed...and I yelled ya missed me ya drunk f*ck

    I was riding up a hill and some guy yelled at me that I was riding the wrong way (I should be going downhill) and I told him "I already did that an hour ago"

    I understand horns and fingers, but very rarely can make sense of what people yell. The 40MPH doppler issue is part of it, but I spend most of my time at sub 15 (and an embarrasing amount at sub 10) and I still don`t get the words. Helmet induced distortion?

    The best story I`ve heard about yelling at cyclists was a few years ago on rbr. A guy`s embarrased wife related one day that she`d yelled "Nice butt!" to a rider who she THOUGHT was her husband but when the rider turned around she realized it wasn`t him.

    I had one lady say next time you do that I'm going to run you over because I took the lane. In SF, the light rail lines run down the middle of the street because they were established before the communities and streets around them existed. So what they have are raised islands in the middle of the road for passengers but the lanes narrow significantly where those islands exist.

    This kind of thing: Google Maps

    I get the "go Lance!" thing every once in a while. I had a glass beer bottle thrown at me on a road where the speed will usually exceed 45-50mph; barely missed me. Most people around here do a good job of ignoring you and doing their best to run you off the road in the process. That or they Doppler yell at me.

    Sometimes if I see a cyclist I'll do my part to make their day and yell something about "go (insert pro racer that's not Lance here)!"Because if that happened to me I'd smile.

    F-bombs to the max when riding on a one-lane each way road with double yellow line and plenty of relief on both sides (25 MPH speed limit for part of it and 35 elsewhere). There is a walking path however I choose to ride on the road when I am going full tilt to avoid running over babies in strollers, joggers, pets toddlers and walkers

    The last guy who yelled all sorts of profanity was a spineless 'n scrawny little jagoff/schnook in a Toyota Camry. He shrunk in his seat when a light turned red and I ended up stopped next to him with a big grin on my face (just hoping he was going to get outta the car so I could drop the fool legally).

    In the last 10 years I don't think I've ever had anyone scream anything other than variants of "get off the road" and "get out of my way". And I get those weekly.

    I do some illegal moves too, but no one ever seems to care.

    I just get the old standby, "Get off the road!" or "Use the sidewalk!" and I just smile and wave. If I'm in a bad mood I only wave with one finger, but most times I am on my bike I am pretty happy, so I do my best to spread that joy by giving them my best shit-eating grin and waving at them.

    My best one was from just about this time last year. We'd gotten a foot of fresh snow the night before, which is really rare. My morning ride in is about as good as can be expected, and I'm riding on the road where I can but I'm also doing a lot of hike-a-biking through snowdrifts on the sidewalks.

    So I'm on one of the hike-a-bike sections tossing my bike over a 2' drift when I hear this yelling. I look over and there's a woman in a green neon who has stopped in the middle of the street and rolled down her window to yell at me. She's screaming "You're crazy!" over and over in a thick German accent.

    She's stopped on a one-lane, one-way road, yelling through her passenger window, and it's -20C out, and there's a jersey-barrier and probably 15' between us, and there are cars behind her honking at her, and I'm the crazy one.

    Thank you


    I have had a few of the Doppler Scream things happen... a gutteral yell just to get me to jump or words that I couldn't understand. I'm a high school teacher, so I've had several encounters with students that are usually harmless attempts to get me to jump out of my skin. It's only scary when you realize that the kid's only had his license for a few months.

    But the recent one that I didn't have any trouble understanding was the brief lecture I got from the PA system of the highway patrol car
    My commute is very rural, and I blow through the same stop sign every morning, since there's rarely a car in sight...It's a T intersection at the bottom of a long hill, at least 1/2 mile visibility in both directions. I saw headlights, but I had plenty of time, so I scooted through and continued on my way, and I see (because of the headlights) the car come up behind me and pace me)... then I got the siren chirp thing, which almost made me leap from my bike like a terrified cat: "WEEEEEUUUUP!!" and then 'the man': RUNNING A STOP SIGN ON A BIKE IS THE SAME THING AS RUNNING A STOP SIGN IN A CAR. I COULD GIVE YOU A TICKET."

    I gave him the thumbs up and the head nod, and he continued on his way. The next day he was in the exact same place at the exact same time, and I stopped for him. Haven't seen him since.

    I'm guilty of rolling through a few stop signs when the coast is clear. What I've noticed is that well over half the cars do it too and they are usually rolling through a lot faster than I am. A lot of people don't even bother hitting the brakes and turn on red as if it were a green light.

    Driving in my neighborhood, I generally don`t drop out of third gear for stop signs. In town, I can`t get away with that. But I ALWAYS tap my brakes before making a right on a red

    50%? My estimate is about 75% here run stops, and rights on red without checking for pedestrians in crosswalks.

    Oh yes, the dopplerunintelligibles. Insert random set of letters here!
    I was very jumpy and easily startled until I got the amalgam fillings out. Some young Yahoos in a pickup yelled various things indistinguishable from a chimp troops calls at a neighboring troop. You know: Jane Goodall stuff.

    The startle reflex is much better now when I have the energy to ride. Ones I heard and remember ;( : "Nice Bike!" from a pedestrian crossing to a ball diamond. "Classy" from a pickup driver. pulling alongside as I was in the left turn lane. "Nice lights" from a kid on a BMX and it was not sarcastic. An acquaintance saw me and said that I was 'anti-camoflage'. Had a guy behind me ask me to tell me about my Radbot 1000s. He wanted them for his mothers motorized wheelchair. Riding the Schwin to get groceries with the garbage can panniers, a guy passed me sort of close gawking, then stopped and waved me alongside. I thought: "I've got a bad feeling about this.." He said "That is a great idea!". So we discussed the merits/bad sides of my ghetto engineered panniers. Of course he never rode them home full into a wind gusting over 20. They make almost as good a sail as they do a pannier. ;(

    Years ago someone yelled "You dropped something back there!". I still have no idea what they were talking about. And yes I did go back and check.

    Everyone else that yells just has a variation on "get off the road" (translation: "get out of my way").
    Cheers, Dave

    No yelling but a funny story. I was on a bike path that runs parrell to a street for mabey half a mile and crosses a street before it peels back into a park. I had a guy apparently upset because he had to wait 2 seconds for me to cross the street, pulled up beside me and tried to Bear Spray me through his passenger window. With the wind he probably got more back into his truck then I got. Justice, when I got the plates and discription. The guy got arrested for misdemeanor assault

    After reading this thread, I'm liking my commute more and more. The only time anyone ever yelled at me, it was encouragement. I was biking through 6" of snow/slush/snot in the middle of a big storm, and some pedestrian yelled out" Way to go! You rock!" at me on the way past. Made my morning.

    Last summer my dad and I did a mini tour from Norcal down to santa cruz. On the last day we were riding up highway 9 into santa cruz and these 2 teen age ****** bags in a piece of junk busted out old honda drive by and yell "faaagggoootttt". About a quarter mile up the road, we caught them, stopped in traffic. I rode up next to the passenger window and politely said "Hey dude, sorry, I didn't catch what you said back there." The kid looked shocked and didn't say a word.

    Walking my bike in the dark up a bike path hill because the snow was too deep came across 2 ladies out with a dog on a leash. Front and rear flashing lights, petzl on my helmet, one of them looks at me and said in a friendly tone "are you serious?", we were getting record snowfalls at the time. I responded with "know that song called Dreamer? We'll that's me" and the two of them laughed, but right at that moment the dog leaped out and bit me on the leg. Poor ladies freaked out and I yelped because it hurt and was a total surprise. I was worried about holes in my clothing, bit me on a gator on the calf, but just ended up with a bruise. They offered a phone number and were really apologetic, guess my attire and lights spooked the dog, who had never done anything before like that. Now I'm totally paranoid around dogs while riding.

    The other winter I had a bus driver open his window and yell at me "you're a moron!", we were at a 4 way stop doing the you go I go no you go thing because we had arrived at the same time, and I went, guess I had misunderstood him? Whatever, no reason to yell. I find the best response is no response to people like that.

    At one particular light, I take the middle (really the right) lane. The far right goes on to the freeway on-ramp just past the intersection, so I don't go to the far right as I would need to move left in the intersection to stay off the freeway while cars would be going to the right to get on. So I leave it so that cars can use the left lane to go straight, and the far right to get on the freeway. So some jerk pulls to my right, rolls down the window and yells 'You know you are on a bike', and I just say 'Yep'. He then goes of on how I need to be on the right because I am a bike and a cop told him so. So I told him that the sign ahead tells me the right goes on the freeway and I am not going on the freeway I am going straight. Thankfully the light changed at that point and he took off, ranting that I should get a ticket or some such. Idiot.

    Hey, DM! Nice to see another `bent rider here- there aren`t a whole lot of us on this board.
    rodar,

    What kind of recumbent are you riding? I have a RANS Wave/Tailwind and a Volae Century.

    Yeah, I saw that on your profile. I got to ride a Tailwind once, liked it- BIG chainring!

    I have a 26/20 SWB that I more or less coppied from V-Rex.

    Dang, I haven`t had any luck inserting images lately. Here was the thread on the build. It`s been painted and tweaked a little since the last pics on the thread, but the same basic bike.
    OT: Building a "fun" bike...

    And a link to the more up to date pic that I couldn`t manage to insert:

    I've been call about everything from gay to F***er.

    One Night I was going home. It was about an hour before Sundown.
    I'm riding in a Industrial Section about a quarter mile from a Stop Light.
    This A$$#OLE comes up to me get right behind me and Blows his horn.
    I hate when people do that cause it just scares the hell out of me.
    So he goes by and he get caught at the light. So I come up be hind him on the Driver Side while he's still stopped. I get right up to his window that was rolled down about a quarter way down.
    |I YELL BEEEP In HIS WINDOW.
    Well now it took him a moment to collect himself. The Yell for me to stay off the road.
    I told him I had just as much right on the road as he did.
    The light turns Green.He goes by my in his BMW and yell out "YOU JEW'
    My reply. Communist!

    I was wearing my winter beard still so when I got home I shaved my Beard Off

    You have no excuse for driving to work

    I was riding on the far right of an 8' wide shoulder and some kids in a pretty cool looking mustang were going the other direction. The dude in the passenger side had long black hair, hangs out the wondow and yells "Dick" and chucks a half full bottle of Mountain Dew at me with the lid on. He was either good or lucky cause it tagged me right in the chest and hurt like hell. I turned my head back and saw that he had a pretty easy to remember license plate. I called the cops later but never took the time to go in and fill out a police report.

    Two months later I'm getting gas, drinking a gatorade, standing there daydreaming and who is gassing up next to me but the same two little punks in the mustang, the passenger with long black hair and the same hat. I quietly walk over, yell "Dick" as loud as I can and hurl the Gatorade as hard as I can into his chest. I know it didn't hurt near as bad as mine but it sure surprised the crap out of him.

    They asked why I did it and when I reminded them what they had done they started to get a horrified look on their faces. The both apologized about 20 times because I'm sure they thought I was going to whoop some butt. I just calmly turned and went back to my truck thoroughly satisfied. I don't thing they will be doing that again!

    Reminds me a guy with a severe short man syndrome honked and yelled something unintelligible at me from behind for taking the lane where there was not room for both of us while we sat at a stagger- corner light. My ignoring him must have hurt his feelings. I launched hard and fast. He floored it and passed me just as I apexed the right turn into the nearly straight on street on the other side of the intersection. Had I not been leaning, he would have mirrored me. I was willing to chock him up as an idiot. When he waved in his mirror clearly gloating. So I gave him an Italian salute. That infuriated him (apparently free speech in hand jestures was only for him, same as using the roads), so he pulled over and got out as I caught him.

    He got in my face yelling, "No one gives me the finger!"

    I was expecting an assault, so this was cool and I said calmly, "Looks like I just did."

    Then he threatened me with bodily harm. I figured if he was he'd have done so, so I just crossed my arms over my barrel chest and I looked down my nose at him and said "I don't fancy your chances." ( I was lean and fit with 8 inches of height and maybe 30 pounds advantage, he had a gut). I think it sunk in I was prepared to open a can of whoop-a$$. He suddenly remembered his daughter in the back seat and the pizza getting cold. Strange he did not remember to set an example for her on how to yield to legal traffic and not be a complete jerk. Kipling said something about keeping your head while those about you lose theirs. Worked this time to not respond.

    I sometimes wonder if he still has his own front teeth.

    I get some interesting looks AND comments when I am forced to blast my "Noisy Cricket" at some driver that doesn't want to pay attention. That thing is LOUD and very annoying. That's why I just LOVE it!!!!!
