Second - as a bicycler I am often treated like I'm a tourist or a minority. People stop traffic for me and interrupt everyone's flow including my own. It's annoying. Tying this to the analogy, it makes me feel like a minority that others tip-toe around in order not to offend while simultaneously offending me and everyone else around us involuntarily involved in our exchange.
To these minivan-driving people I would say you are doing more harm than good by your overreaction to my presence. Just drive your dang car and let me worry about whether or not I end up underneath your wheels.
Awesome post - see you on the front page.
Lousy drivers, you're forgiven AND not forgotten.
Don't feed the pandas. Ever.
