Bicyclists not ready to rest

I am usually the quiet type, but I cannot refrain from commenting on Jerry Wilson’s letters to the editor of Aug. 29 and Sept. 2.

First of all, Mr. Wilson, your apology is not accepted. I ride bikes often, occasionally read Biff America and am offended, as you suspected.

I do not know if you were raised in Summit County. The odds are highly unlikely given your “aggro,” road-rage-like attitude. I can say positively, however, that you remind me of why I left the overcrowded, horn-honking streets of northeastern New Jersey and New York City.

It also strikes a personal nerve to hear you refer to mowing down cyclists after some of my fellow cycling friends have fallen victim to motor vehicles on our streets.

In addition, your Sept. 2 letter in response to Jeffrey Bergeron further substantiates my suggestion. I believe the the best solution to the problem would be for you to pack up and high-tail it out of Summit County where you can deal with drive-by shootings rather than be held up by a cyclist for another 20 minutes of your life.
