It started out as a nice commute this morning, as I was in a pretty good rhythm on my fixie. I don’t know what my cadence was, but all I knew was it was feeling pretty good.
I then got onto the frontage road at Moffett Park, and the nicely re-paved stretch of road, which is completely flat. Two riders ride in front of me, and about 0.3 miles into the stretch, I saw a clearing, and moved up ahead and pulled. I’m not sure if they were drafting me (I assume they were).
I then get to a red light, so I stop for it. Then the other idiots pass me (one passes me to the left, the other passes me to the right), and crosses the intersection, completely in red. In fact, it turned red about 100 ft from the intersection. Lucky there weren’t many cars making a left turn from the other side. I wish I had my Contour video camera to film it all. Talk about “people behaving badly”.
Really, we aren’t all like that, are we? To those two cyclists who ran the red, you are not above the law … they apply to you too!
