Reader: I'm a cyclist, but even I understand why some drivers feel bike rage

In our recent post about bike-rage attacks in advance of the Deer Creek Challenge and (possibly) the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, a Jeffco spokeswoman emphasized that cyclists have caused problems, too. One pedaller believes that's true, and illustrates his point via an incident that made him understand resentment against two-wheelers.

Very True. I am a cyclist that lives in Littleton and I drove my family up high grade to show it to them. A couple groups of cyclists were just a$$holes riding 2-3 people wide. Just from the single drive up I was frustrated with lots of the cyclists. For some reason a large number of cyclists don't understand what "ride single file" means. Very frustrating.
