Are Boulder bikers always pushing on the driver/biker line? Are they incredibly aggressive, self righteous and holier than thou? Yes yes and yes again. But it there any real virulent/violent backlash against them? Probably not. I think the odds are with plain old lack of knowledge or mistake much more. No matter how entitled or obnoxious they become -- we are proud of them and usually over-encourage them. Boulderians love their biking brethren and I've yet to see any serious angry response to the HUNDREDS of poor/illegal/dickheaded biking decisions I've seen in just two years here.... Maybe it does exist... but surely not in Boulder?
