    Why would surfers hate cyclists? We don't compete for the same resources. When I was a skateboarder I hated BMX Nazis...

    Is it because we compete for the same material for our wetsuits and their shorts????

    But if we're supposed to hate cyclist I need memos on this stuff so we can get all the people we hate because we surf....

    I personally can not stand cyclists because they are stupid enough to trust people driving steel tanks. Is it really worth it?

    I think it's more an entitlement to the asphalt and yellow/white lines than a trust for the motorists. Not all, but many cyclists put themselves, the motorists on both sides of the road, and pedestrians on the sidewalks in grave danger. We (surfers) have to go to the ends of the earth at times to find our venue to hone and enjoy our craft. And for the most part, we have rules of engagement and a general consideration for safety and rights of way. If I could say the same (last two sentences) for most cyclists, I'd be less apt to want to drive past them, slow down, and let them be introduced to the inside of my open door.

    Darwin would be disgusted with some cyclists lack of self-preservation and respect for will to survival of others in their environment.

    Now Mtn Biking on the other hand, yea brah! Long lost pastime! Good stuff and it's fun and balls out when done right.

    I wouldn't call myself an avid cyclist but i have a lot of bikes. a road bike, a vintage schwinn tandem, vintage schwinn tri-, beat to sh1t beach cruiser with surfboard rack... I don't think cyclists have a feeling of entitlement. If you have a road bike you have to stay on the ROAD. You can't be cruising at 20 miles an hour and then pull onto a gravel shoulder to let a car past you that will move over into the other lane for a fat fukc walking down the road with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth but won't slow down and give two feet of the road for a cyyclist. Rant over.

    Haha love the visual of fat guy with butt hanging from mouth.

    The places this all seems to work in harmony are the roads that have the designated bike lane. But those are far and few between.
