I know many non-snob urban bicyclists, and several extremely snobby ones, too. I think it goes both ways, the same for us car drivers. But an experience I had really made me think.

I was driving behind a bicyclist in my hometown of Pittsburgh, home of many steeeeeep streets. On a particularly steep incline, this bicyclist missed his pedal and completely ate it in the middle of rush hour traffic. If I hadn't been driving way under the speed limit (both because of the rush hour traffic, and that the bicyclist was going quite slowly up the hill), I would either killed him or had to drive into oncoming traffic to miss him. It scared the bejesus out of me.

There are just some places that bicyclists shouldn't go, unless there are bike lanes. It's unfortunate, but true.
