Some people. One minute, you're on the Cherry Creek Path enjoying a leisurely commute on your bicycle, the next you're inches away from getting mowed down by some prick in Spandex without even the common decency to announce his presence. It happens to Bree Davies almost every day, and clearly she's not the only one: Her Breeality Bites column about it earlier today hit a nerve with a few people, and apparently the behavior is not confined to the path. Reader SxPxDxCx weighs in on Washington Park:

You hit the nail on the head. There are a bunch of these "I'm training and can't slow my cadence for a second" jerks at Wash Park too. One of them yelled at my friend and her kids last weekend. If your such a man to yell and a mom and her kids why don't your go "train" in the street.

Well said.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
