In Lifestyles: Road wars

Cyclists and vehicles share the road.

Walla Walla is known as a bicyclist’s paradise: relatively sparsely traveled rural roads with beautiful scenery. But these same roads are used by farmers, residents and other motorists. After several deaths the question remains: Is there room for everyone?

For the full story by Gillian Frew, head over to our Lifestyles site. In addition to the story and more photos, you'll find videos, history and the rules of the road.

As I was driving to work this morning I was headed down Rose toward the old Cenex. A bicycle was in front followed by a car and then myself. As I got toward the light the bicycle and the car were in the right turn turning lane. Then the bicyclist angled to be in the turning lane and the going straight lane. Light turn red and bicyclist is riding in both lanes. I ride a bicycle but I have no respect for byclyclist that do stuff like this.

All too often I am hearing stories about how cyclists feel entitled to use the roadways designed for motorists, but not respect the rules of the road themselves.

What makes me laugh are the cyclists that feel they have to "dress up" in their tights and bright shirts then head into the downtown and put on a show for us while they get their lattes. Not really an environment designed for cyclists that are really interested in getting a workout. Lame.
