[Daily Mail] This is the shocking moment a cyclist with a child on the back of his bike was just centimetres away from being taken out by an oncoming car.
I gasped when I saw this video. Out loud. Gasped. I mean, it’s one thing for bicyclists to run red lights, breeze past stop signs, and generally behave with a total disregard for the safety of themselves and others. I get it. Bicyclists believe two things: 1) they are invincible, and 2) nobody else matters. So in a weird, perverse way, it makes total sense.
But I have to admit, I thought there was a small shred of humanity left in the bicyclist psyche. I thought, surely, they must at LEAST care for the safety of their children. After all, it’s a biological imperative. Reproduce and protect. Ensure that your progeny live on. That your line survives. That the species maintains continuity.
Apparently I was wrong. The bicyclists flies right on through a red light and almost gets sideswiped by a regular, law-abiding citizen. Even worse, the car almost clips the back of the bicycle–which is exactly where this poor kid is sitting. So, just to be clear, this bicyclist not only put their child in danger, they put their child in the MOST danger.
The only possible conclusion that can be drawn here is that bicyclists are not human anymore. The biological imperative no longer holds sway over them. Which actually makes sense, the more I think about it. I assume that cramming themselves into those skintight lycra outfits has probably squeezed their collective sperm count into the single digits, so it’s frankly a miracle that this bicyclist was able to reproduce at all. Maybe these spandex-clad pedal jockeys have sterilized themselves to the point that they don’t even know what to do with a kid anymore.
I’m not saying it’s the truth. I’m just looking for answers. And faced with the evidence I’ve seen here today, it’s the only responsible conclusion I can draw.
