So, I just got back to my apartment, after my first round of classes.

For reasons I will not articulate, I decided to walk to campus... it's not the far. I've never had a problem with getting hit by people on bikes while walking before, unlike certain others on this forum.

Today was different.

Freakin' bikers were clipping me, on average, about once every 14 minutes on my way to class. Now, in their defense: the sidewalks are fairly narrow, and everyone in Boulder rides a bike. (that is to say: everyone in Boulder rides the same particular bike)

Here's the thing: there are fucking bike paths EVERYWHERE. The bike path system in Boulder is, in fact, more extensive than the sidewalk system. I can, for most of my walk, see the fucking bike path from the sidewalk. It's spacious, the lanes are clearly indicated with broken lines (so, it's OK to pass), and there's a picture of a guy on a bike such that you know it's a bike lane.

What the fuck, people? What the fuck?

Were they gunning for me because I was wearing my Patriots jersey? You're damn right I was.
