Sure, why don’t you just slow to a halt and hang out for a while in the middle of the bike lane at one of the busiest intersections in the neighborhood?

A few other cyclists passive aggressively (but not unwarrantedly) whizzed past within inches of hitting them, but they didn’t get the message. They just hung out.

    The musta thought they were in a car… were they diddling with their I-Phones?

    Stupid twunts

    Rude bike riders? No way!

    don’t see why you need to be passive aggressive here, just say something like clear the lane / move over as you pass and they probably will.

      Why are Californians so inept at actually saying something and fixing the issue?

      A simple firm yet polite “please clear the lane” would have sufficed.

      Still trying to get used to that passive aggressive stuff out here.

    this is amusingly insignificant compared to the several valet parking cars routinely in the bike lane across the street at Locanda during dinner hours. Be careful fellow bike riders.

      I’ve learned to ride extra cautiously when a fancy car appears on that stretch of Valencia. Between Limon and Locanda, they’ll cut you off every time.

      You know what isn’t amusingly insignificant? When a bicycle rider blows through a stop sign and get CRUSHED by a car. OBEY road signs fellow bike riders.

    Ya, I would have totally said something to them. I hate these types of bastards that live in their own little worlds.

  7. d says:

    So they chose to stand there, instead of that little nook behind the mini which would have been a perfect spot. Oblivious, inconsiderate, dangerous.

    If I was riding by with a slurpee I’d toss it on em’

    get the message? did anyone clearly enunciate a message to them or were you depending on psychic vibes? also can we start getting blog posts every time a car is stopped in the bike lane?

    • Sean says:

      “inconsiderate biker/driver” post is still more interesting than “pic of my bro/girl holding a beer” and “please start using this term I’ve made up.”

    I love to pay for valet parking, tip 25% on meals, stand in line for overpriced buy rights, tart-teen.

    I’ll make you a great grilled cheese sandwich for say, $16. No tip required; perhaps throw in a slice of tomato.

    See, this is why I carry an air horn everywhere I go.

  13. GetReal says:

    wheelie around them and get on with life

  14. Critical Asser says:

    Just don’t do the same to them, when they’re saving the world, or there will be hell to pay.

  15. milson says:

    Big deal. And I’m not sure women as bastards.

    A lot of SF cyclists are some of the most inconsiderate in the world, comparable to NYers.

    Let’s see… ride through red lights? Check. Overtake and stop on the crosswalk in front of considerate cyclists at intersections thus blocking pedestrians? Check. Blocking bike lanes by standing in front of them or going slowly side by side? Check. I especially love the bicyclists who cut in front of my general direction so that I have to actually pass them on the right with my bike. Have they never heard of maybe braking, letting me pass, and then veering in.

    I love cycling but seriously… why can’t more cyclists be less douchey?!

  17. LoveNPeace says:

    They look like bicyclists and living up to the stereotype!

    I’ll bet these two also go snowboarding and sit down right in the middle of the run.

    In case you ever doubt that MM is a vehicle for positive change in the world, this weekend I was biking in a group of 6 and we stopped to pick up 2 additional friends, and we were all just sitting there blocking the bike lane on Valencia in front of their apartment, but then I remembered this post and got everyone to move out of the way. MISSION MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

    I bet they go to a Thanksgiving dinner party and eat the stuffing out of the turkey together.
