Raise your middle finger in solidarity, my brothers!

I haven't seen that level of hostility, but I'm only commuting to and from work, not cycling around all day. I'm in Chocago, BTW. When I started bike commuting about 18 years ago, I would get honked or yelled at a couple times a week; that hasn't happened in years.


I remember the same improvement some time after I began (near) daily
commuting back in the 1970s. I think the motorists begin to recognize
you as a legitimate road user after they become familiar with you. At
least, if you're riding like a legitimate road user.
