What REALLY grinds my gears

People exiting a driveway/shopping center/streets and waiting for the last second to stop as I ride my bike by in front of them.

People who drive their cars to close to me.

People who drive to close and then pull in my lane for some unknown reason.

People in Diesel trucks that as hey go by, they feel the need to floor it and leave me in a cloud of their black emissions.

People who can't wait 10 seconds.

People who throw bottles of full and empty water bottles at me.

People who think they own the road because they are in a bigger vehicle.

People who drive and take out their frustrations on a cyclist.

People who cut me off in their cars.

People like Zack Coleman.

Crackheads who steal bikes.

Crackheads who steal bikes and then ride them in the bike lane the wrong way so I have to go out in traffic.

Cyclist who think they are better then you because they ride a four thousand dollar bike.

Cyclist who are so full of themselves they don't waive to say hi, nod their heads or God forbid even lift a finger to acknowledge another cyclist.

Cyclist who fly through stop lights and give other cyclist bad names.

"But roads are for cars, not bicyclists."

That about sums it up. As for crackheads, I will typically continue riding directly towards them to try and remind them that they're in the wrong lane.
