    There were a bunch of asshats out on the roads and trails today. Riding fancy carbon bikes and wearing black kits, passing people with impunity.

    It's every commute for me. Except when I wear my pink kit because it's Giro time.

    I made sure to break with my tradition and wear all black on the way home so I could also ride with impunity. It was pretty awesome.

    Here we go again. The finally-warm weather brings *everyone* out- including the a--h----.

    Megabeth reported a truly scary moment with an a--h--- motorist at Hains Point today just for good measure.

    (Yes, I'm muzzling my mouth... do I have permission to speak frankly?)

    Just got my first carbon bike, usually wear black, and I've been known to pass unscathed, but luckily yesterday I took my steel bike. Phew! Wouldn't want to get spoked.
