Obviously cyclists are also sometimes pedestrians and any cyclists muttering that knows it. It’s also obvious that pedestrians can be every bit as rude, obnoxious, clueless, stupid, ignorant, or anything else that cyclists can be. Just like drivers! Let’s face it, the majority of us who cycle also drive and walk. Like every other person on this planet there’s times when we do something stupid, just like lots of pedestrians and drivers do too. We as a group of humans just need to learn to cut each other some slack .

Some of you have it so damn easy. Please get a life if this is all you've had to think about for the last 3 days.

why lump cyclists in with drivers?

I've heard many self-unaware drivers complain about pedestrians, but never cyclists. When you're on a bicycle, pedestrians aren't a nuisance, the cars are the trouble.

Obviously you haven’t ridden a bike in places with pedestrians if you really believe that they aren’t a problem. Sure, if you only ride on busy streets then mostly it’s going to be drivers. But if you ride in places where both cyclists and pedestrians go, such as where there’s divided or shared pathways, you’ll encounter a LOT of very entitled pedestrians who feel justified in walking wherever they want, including the bike path, or refusing to get out of the way to share the path, etc. It’s literally a constant game of dodgeball in some areas, and most of the ones who do it are extremely rude about it too. Where I live there’s pedestrians all over the streets too, who refuse to step off onto the walkway or shoulder of the road even when there’s lots of room for them to do so. Instead they’ll play a game of chicken until the cyclist (who’s riding where they’re legally supposed to by the way!) has to swerve into traffic or come to a complete stop to avoid hitting them. People like this (aka a-holes) are the pedestrians who give the rest of them a bad name.
