Reader: You're an idiot to drink and ride

b-cycle-denver-march-201203.jpg
The streets of Denver are filled with bicyclists -- some doing errands, some going to and from work, some out for recreation, and others seeking a drink. For that last group, Laura Shunk served up a weekend B-Cycle bar tour that was "seriously cheap and disgusting," according to Bradman.

And that's not all. Says Denverite:

Drinking and riding should be celebrated no more than drinking and driving. I do drink and ride my bike but I definitely never push that activity onto others. You're an idiot!

"I do drink and ride my bike... You're an idiot! "So you're an idiot too.

What Denverite said. You can get a DUI while riding your bike (it's a semi-regular item in the news in Boulder; state law treats a bike no different than a car re: rules of the road), and although a bike running into something is less damaging than a car, a drunk bicyclist is still a danger to others (eg. wreck caused by drivers trying to avoid a drunk cyclist's actions).

Laura Shunk is like Barack Obama: Some people feel the need to hate on every single thing she says.

No, see Denverite isn't an idiot because he or she didn't tell anyone else to do it.  Apparently, it's okay to drink and ride--just don't get a bunch of other people to do it.  Okay, you're right.  Denverite is an idiot.
