Today marks the end of Bike to Work Week in the United States. Personally, the week wasn’t that much different for me — once spring hits, I usually commute at least once per week by bike, even though it’s a long commute (~27 miles one way). Oddly enough, cycling can be faster than driving thanks to the numerous bottlenecks bikes can navigate while cars get clogged.

But cars and bikes often don’t get along — cars are big, roads are narrow, cyclists are comparatively slow, and drivers and cyclists can both be impatient.

The classic conflict between drivers and cyclists is captured with a bit of gentle humor in the video below. As a cyclist and a driver, I can relate to both sides of this scene.

Happy Friday! Be safe on the roads, whatever form of transportation you choose.
