Driver of SUV harasses cyclists
According to Boing Boing, the driver of SUV harassed a pair of cyclists for nearly five minutes, two of which were caught on camera.
Here’s an excerpt of the youtube video description:
(Update as of Wednesday Sept 19th: The Colorado State Patrol is involved and we’ve found others who have had similar run-ins with this driver. Stay tuned for more updates) 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.
