So I’m riding home in the dark on Hinkle, minding the traffic to my left, avoiding the numerous potholes, when AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! An ear-splitting female scream scares the shit out of me, and it’s coming from a silver Honda Civic a couple feet to my left. This girl has her head out the window for maximum intensity. I catch up to the same car at the University intersection. I ask “hey, what was that all about?” The girl passenger shrugs and sheepishly waves through the rolled-up window.
I get about one of these every year.
Who does this?
Why do this?
Why bikes and not pedestrians or other cars?
Does this happen to all cyclists, or is it a helmet/nerd thing?
