I tend to think I'm a pretty relax kinda guy, but today there was a incident that REALLY pissed me off, but I later did calm down.
My buddy was taking his last road ride with his course at Action, and since I didn't get to do the Cypress ride, I was allowed to ride behind them with another friend of mine who has been riding for around 3 years.
So anyways we got split up (the class from my and my friend), and we were at the lights on West Pender that joins Georgia (going towards stanley park).
Anyhoo, as I'm still a new rider, sometimes the bike gets stuck in neutral (yeah I know, gotta let the clutch out)... so when the light turned green, and my friend took off, I didn't move...
About 2 physical seconds later, someone behind honked the horn. I turned my head, and there was some chick driving a Audi A4. When I looked at her, she started pointing at the green light... "yeah you figure?" so instead of taking off, I took things calm, and just stood there, not moving, I was in no rush.
She pulled around me after some cars cleared, and at that point I took off. I was in the carpool lane (bus lane) and I looked over my shoulder and there she was in her car, trying to intimidate me, and was shaking her arms, and saying "ohh ahhh I ride a bike" (well I dunno if she said that, but thats how she was acting) so in a sense, saying that I think i'm kewl cuz I ride a bike.
Well actually I am , little girl who's probably driving in the car her parents bought her...
Anyways I gave her the mid finger, shook my head, and look at the car next to her, where there were some dudes, who were shaking their head... AT HER. I mean, what kinda freak would honk at a bike 2 seconds after the light went green?
So I caught up with my friend, and went over the Lions gate bridge. When we got to the bottom, we went around that nice roundy towards park royal mall. We were on the outside, and she pulls up in the inside of the turn, looking straight, with her tounge sticking out.
She was lucky I was turning or she would of felt some banging on the outside of her car door, and unfort, she took off, up into the British Properties...
Oh well, I just had to let that out... its amazing what idiots are out there... and to think I've only been on the bike for 1 month.
Well if anyone see's some brunett that looks around 12 driving a Blue Audi A4 around the British Properties, show her some love for me.
So anyone else here get a little ticked once in a while?
I calmed down later, when my friend reminded me of the car that had 5 girls in it, that pulled up and started chating with us only about 25 minutes before...
