Is this a thing?

On each of the past 4 days, while out walking the Partners, I’ve seen bicyclists (4 different ones) riding no hands while texting, paying no attention at all to what is in front of them. I have little doubt these folks will find themselves in hospital sooner rather than later.

Today’s guy, though, was special. He was cycling no hands, texting one-handed, AND drinking a bottle of iced tea. When he finished the bottle he absently pitched it into somebody’s garden. This all happened very fast. I blurted out, “hey Buddy, there’s a garbage a block away in the park.”

Buddy flipped me the bird.

    They must be playing some moronic online app that dares you to risk your life for fictional points or currency. I myself don’t want to ever be associated with a bunch of plastic flowers on a Telephone pole. I will stick to riding with a helmet and following the rules of the road.; two handed except to signal my turn.

    Well that’s just a combo of scary and awful. I’ll be sure to watch out for these sloppy turkeys!
