Default I declare the area from Bal Harbour to 47th ST to be "no man's land"

(Posted at my local forum)

It's been an unilateral decision, I grant you, but this is
open to challenges. Anyone who can show me how to do it --outside of
the grinding, winding sidewalks-- is welcomed to do so. Yesterday,
overwhelmed by the heat on the sandy part at 87th ST, we took to the
road having the bulk of a trailer behind us. We just took the lane and
thought we would be spared their rage... No way! One guy with a
handicap service car waved us to go off the road while another roared
his convertible BMW toward my girlfriend in front pulling away at the
last second, right at Bal Harbour. Even the lady in the car screamed
at him.

Trailer or no trailer they still harass you, or may I say
attack you. Then I sat down and touched up my Manifesto --they sound
melodramatic-- thus declaring:

Go into "no man's land" and TAKE THE LANE. Yes, it can be done
provided we coordinate and cooperate. They can't afford to kill many
cyclists if we are part of one movement. Actually we are at greater
risk by NOT coordinating. We lose our lives in grinding and winding
road edges and sidewalks, where we also endanger the pedestrian,
another innocent casualty in this war. Did I say war? Good metaphor
but, of course, we don't stand a chance. WE ARE SITTING DUCKS. "Never
saw him" is a common excuse. Put on something bright and go into no
man's land.

But I wouldn't recommend martyrdom. Plan B is to stay in the
cage. Weigh the options, including a Plan C. I go kayaking often where
I enjoy relative peace. Such is life in the end of times. Nothing
Biblical about it. We get what we deserve and we are endangered
species because of our ARROGANCE & GREED. There's bananas for all, but
we want the whole bunch. Banana Revolution or extinction.

In most parts of the US, the use of a firearm in self-defense is legal.

Something to consider.

The Miami Beach area is for walking, not cycling. If you want to ride your
bike, you will have to get out of that area. All that taking the lane will
do is get you killed. That would improve these newsgroups, but still I am on
your side when it comes to how motor vehicles have completely taken over our
society. It is truly an abomination.

Not really sure why this stuff is crossposted to URC. I guess a high
percentage of URC readers have killfiled all such posts.

I'd say only a bazooka would work in those conditions where the car is
already two blocks ahead of you.

Nobody walks outside the little community of South Beach. It's too
hot! The thing is they have launched a bicycle program to included all
the beach and there's no bike facility for it. This is to be compared
to London and Paris. Perhaps their drivers are more civilized or they
have bike facilities.

The Neanderthal driver predominates here.
