I think you are confusing bikers and bicyclists.

Also I'm all for sharing the road as long as they follow the same rules I have to and they can go the same speed, and if they paid a tax to maintain those same roads, they don't. I have respect for them, I have crazy respect for the ones that do single track downhill. I can't do it, I got no desire to be on something with 2 wheels and no motor.
Just my feelings, and No I don't have to pretend to do anything, I'm not Politically Correct, I got no desire to pretend to like some douche bag culture that seems to think they are superior to everyone just because they can use a mode of transportation that was obsolete as soon as man created a motor.
If it's just a hobby great! but to some it's a lifestyle and unfortunately their "hobby" directly affects me at times.
It's not comparable, if it was they would be regulated to some part of a park and not all the streets/trails/wherever the hell they want to be. They also seem to have most of their people in very good shape, something I see lacking at a lot of DG courses. We have a sport where mostly normal people, fat, thin, smokers, drinkers can go out and enjoy a day in the park. Basically anyone can play our sport.

Man, you are some piece of work. Last time I checked, a bicycle is a legalVehicle, and has every right to be on the road as you do. Plus, if some guy wants to wear a spandex suit, who gives a ****! I don't. I guess your life is perfect , and going great, and you have nothing else to worry about. I'm, sorry, I have alot more to worry about, and I don't give a damn, about what most people are doing in their spare time. Plus, you can drive right past him, so he is in your way for what, 10 seconds at the most? And that is enough to ruin your hole day?
Brother, you should walk a mile in my shoes, and you would see, that those people on the bicycles are the least of your worries.

Plus, how do you think they might view you? To them, you look like some idiot throwing a piece of plastic, and then , walking after it. And then, throwing it again. How do you think that looks to others?
Why don't you just enjoy your sport and let them enjoy theirs. That is what makes the world go around. We all like different things.
Before you start judging others, maybe you should look in the mirror and worry about yourself first. Damn!

don't make me stand on my soapbox! I'm all for them, but unless you are Ken Climo and trying to capture another world championship there is no reason for a bunch of loser 30 somethings to throw frisbees at metal grills. Also I'm all for sharing the park as long as they follow the same rules I have to and they aren't where I am, and if they paid a tax to maintain those same parks, they don't. I have respect for them, I have crazy respect for the ones that do trick shots. I can't do it, I got no desire to play "disc golf" because I'm a poor painter that can't afford green fees.
Just my feelings, and No I don't have to pretend to do anything, I'm not Politically Correct, I got no desire to pretend to like some douche bag culture that seems to think they are superior to everyone just because they can play a lazy, drug sport that makes fat golfers look like elite athletes.

It's not comparable, if it was they would be regulated to some part of a park and not all the fields/green space/wherever the hell they want to be. They also seem to have most of their people in very poor shape, something I see not lacking at a lot of cycling meetups. We have a sport where mostly normal people, have to actually work to and get exercise and not just smoke in the park. Basically anyone can play disc golf because it's not a sport.

lol last thing I wanted was to start a rant thread. you can't compare bicycling and disc golf, which was my point. also I do have personal issues with cyclists, but they are my own issues, and I won't apologize for them, nor will I worry about what they think of me never have, my other "hobbies" are even more strange than DG, I know what niche sport is. Don't worry about that either.

People around here wouldn't get along with you. Madison is a big time biking city. Me, I just do it for fun, it's very enjoyable...and I really wish I had a better bike so I could do some mountain bike trails. I have a friend who lives in the city, and bikes everywhere around there. He does have a car though, which is mainly for any distance that just isn't done in a timely manner on a bike. Also I doubt most bikers are so snobby as to think so highly of themselves for using that mode of transportation. If anything they just like that it saves them on fuel and keeps them in shape. Personally I'm always afraid of some idiot in a car sending me to a hospital because they don't notice hand turn signals or something of the sort. I fear some fool won't realize that he needs to slow down if I'm near a turn and about to make it(using my turn signal) because he thinks he can just pass me or some bs just because I'm on the shoulder of the road being nice to them.

Just think of how they see you, the guy who could disable them by taking eyes off the road for maybe 3 seconds(could be an exaggeration).

Yup, I joined the rant bandwagon.

I had to make this as a new message as I missed the edit window(of time).

Happy meds have too many side effects . I just felt the need to point a few things out and like I think all of us it just multiplied which formed a rant.

Yea, I found out that my wife's car needs a new computer to the tune of $900, so I am a little pissed off at the world right now. Sorry for my outburst.
