The driver of a Ford Explorer, Colorado license plate 893 EKG, might, possibly, maybe, perhaps have some kind of grudge against road cyclists. I’m going out on a limb here saying this, but, well, it wouldn’t be “Adventure” Journal if we didn’t take risks.
No, seriously, WTF? Watch this video shot recently near Longmont, Colorado, and see if your sense of righteous anger doesn’t start brewing up a good head of steam. It’s true that road cyclists can antagonize drivers, but these guys are clearly in the right, riding single file and staying hard up against the edge of the pavement. But the driver, well, you’ll see — none of that matters to him.
The irony, of course, is that “this guy was so intent of bugging us that he backed up traffic behind him and cars had to pass him on a double yellow line. It seems he was the one obstructing traffic, not us. We ended up slowing up in order to force him to pass us and go on with his day,” wrote the uploader.
