This dispatch brought to you with pride by the Crazy People Who Hate Bikes Foundation.

July 18th near Berthoud, Colo.:

Guy drives behind some cyclists in their 50s—pretty non-threatening folks. Guy gets the “bikes is slow” road rage thing going on and pulls out in front of said cyclists. Guy climbs out of the car with a T-Ball bat, says something profane and then goes to town on a $4,800 Trek Madone. No joke.

From the Fort Collins Coloradoan story:

Stevens says he’s still shocked by what happened to him and his carbon fiber Trek Madone bike, which was destroyed.

“He let out this scream and he beat on my bike on the ground a couple times. Then he made stabbing motions at me with the bat, calling me obscenities. Then he got in his car and took off,” Stevens said. “It was pretty crazy.”

When police later confronted the assailant about the incident, he said the cyclists had attacked his Pontiac GT by throwing their bikes at it and that he had “tried” to escape. Mhmm… Bikes cost more than your car, dude.
