There’s nothing worse than being harassed by passing drivers while trying to enjoy a beautiful day cycling with friends. We’ve all had it happen. Whether in the city in a bike lane or on a mountain road, some drivers just hate bikers. These two bikers had the misfortune of encountering this irritable driver. According to the first cyclist:
Here is what was supposed to be my relaxing Sunday morning ride with my teammate until things became a bit unsettling when an older male driver came up behind us in his Ford Explorer (license plate Colorado 893 EKG). This guy obviously doesn’t like seeing bikes for some reason since he sat behind us for more than five minutes blaring his horn. What’s even worse is we saw him approaching from behind and to be polite we ride single file to give him as much road as possible, as we did with every other car we encountered on this road east of Longmont, CO. 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. Insane. Hopefully this is the worste thing this guy does to cyclists.
Update from original poster —
I appreciate everyone’s input on this matter and I have since spoken to Trooper Donahue of CHP. There have been other reports of this same driver it seems and if anyone else has information about this person please give Trooper Donahue a call at 303-239-4501. We need to centralize all information about this person please. Thank you!
