@ Pokerguy: "We all know 90% of people who rides bikes in Seattle are dickheads with a sense of entitlement."
Yes they have a sense of entitlement. Know why? Because they pay just as much in taxes as you do so naturally they're entitled to use the road. What part of that do you not understand? Do you think roads are maintained and built exclusively with tax revenue derived only from car related expenses? If so, you're an idiot and need to so some research because that's not how it works.
Also don't get me started on all the times I've been slowed down by some addle brained motorist who doesn't understand how right of way works at 4 way intersections. Or how to parallel park without leaving 5 feet of space between cars. Or don't get the f*** out of the left lane when someone is trying to pass. Sorry Pokerguy but there are plenty of dickheads driving cars. Worse yet, the dickheads who drive cars also kill tens of thousands of people every year - can't say that about cyclists.
That said, riding down Leary is stupid. Just because you have a legal right to do something doesn't mean you should.
