Im talking about the peices of **** that blatantly slow traffic and waste the public's time. Especially when we have bike paths throughout the whole town. They are more walk paths

(Yea I can make corrections too)
Didn't make the corrections to your post/quote. If you look at your post, you will see it is bolded and that is what carried through to the quote.

If you've ever biked to get from point A to point B then you would have quickly found out that the fastest route is usually that same road that everyone drives on to do the same. They build them like that for a reason, to make the distance between destinations as short as possible. ''Bike Paths'' are usually meandering and full of walkers. Your ''Walk Paths'' comment is pretty accurate. If you're biking with a purpose they are to be avoided. No one likes a cyclist going 30mph plowing through people out for a walk. I've been there and chose to ride on the street next to the path.

If you think slow pokes are worse for society than someone throwing cigarette butts and screaming profanity at people then your car should be taken away. It seems to be empowering you and enabling your rage problem. Try doing any of that outside of the comfort and power of your vehicle.

I drive a 4800 pound van and also bike. I give bikers a ton of space and slack because they aren't destroying the pavement or coughing out fumes like I am when driving. You should gain some perspective by biking once in awhile.

Again you people seem to be misinterpreting, I'm not talking about average every day cyclists or point A to point B riders that hug the shoulder and are respectful. I'm talking about the people that think their Lance Armstrong or something and drive down 45 mph roads when they can only peddle a steady 20 mph.

If you have chosen to slow traffic 25 mph instead of using the bike path the town payed for, which is right next to the same road going the same direction, your an even bigger ******* than me, and that's saying something.

It seems every time i post anything on this forum it turns into everyone in the thread picking my posts for **** they dont like.
Everyone has an opinion mine is that I hate those *******s. Deal with it and move on.

In fairness Ramous stating that you are flicking your cigarettes at them and cursing them out does not make people have to "pick your posts apart for things they do not like". You made it really easy on that one.

I just treat them the same way I treat slow car drivers. Swear, grumble, and then drive around them. My town has a problem with people doing 5-10 mph under the speed limit at most. It gets worst the closer you get to campus.

But I feel that swearing, yelling, and grumbling are alot better then riding up on thier bumper, cutting them off, or driving unsafe my self. Or for guys on bikes, flashing my lights at them, brushing thier wheels, or "sharing" the lane with them.
