  • You don’t roller skate in a buffalo herd!!! You don’t go hunting in a wildlife sanctuary !! You don’t roller skate down the interstate!! So how dumb do you have to be to ride a bicycle on a highway??? This being said, your “point” means nothing if you end up DEAD!!!

    • Karma, bicycles ARE allowed on highways if they follow set safety rules. In nature coast area there are alot of people who do not have cars due to low pay( can’t afford car ), also bus services are lacking in some areas, licences suspended/revoked . Some need to ride bicycles to get to work, grocery shop, etc.
      YES THEY ARE ALLOWED ON ROADWAYS ! My point BICYCLISTS ARE SIMILAR TO PEDESTRIAN LAW THEY HAVE A RIGHT OF WAY. AUTO DRIVERS NEED TO RESPECT PEDESTRIAN/BICYCLIST LAWS ALSO. THEY ONLY END UP DEAD BECAUSE AUTO DRIVERS REFUSE TO ADHERE TO LAW.

    • Love your post KARMA, poor Unbelievable has an Anger issue, and her cap lock button is always stuck, maybe Els could get that fixed for her. As she can see, I did live to read her post. (Whispering) Let’s not tell her she is NOT Queen of Hernando County. might send her over the edge. lmbo

    • Except for the fact that the intersection of Rhanbuoy and Cavehill is not highway, it’s not even a major through street. Even if it was, there are sidewalks almost the entire way from County Line Road to Centralia on U.S.19. So how dumb do you have to be?

      • Call it what you may, it was designed for automobiles. He wasn’t hit by a pedestrian!! And on that note..I hear the buffalo herd is coming so you better hurry and get your roller skates !!!! 🙂

        • So you are just going to ignore the fact the bicyclist was nowhere near a highway, may even have been crossing the street legally, yet you called the bicyclist dumb. The sidewalks on U.S.19 are nowhere near the roadway so if someone was hit while cycling on the sidewalk the motorist would absolutely be in the wrong. Who is the dumb one? No need to answer because we know it wasn’t the cyclist and it’s not me.

    • Tired of Labels, in September ELS & I began asking EVERYONE to please slow down, drive defensively, don’t text, be courteous,etc. We both brought up school in session, Halloween & upcoming holidays to be spent with families. TO NO AVAIL sad to say. But the carnage increased when northerners began returning & southerners seemed to follow suit. Someone needs to take responsibility is what I’m saying. Hope you live long enough to read the message !!!!!

  • I hope & pray for the best outcome for bicyclist. It’s a shame that you can’t enjoy Florida weather by bicycling without living in fear for your life!!!! May be it’s their means of getting to their job. Wish the cyclist a speedy recovery.
    I’ve noticed more “accidents” & crashes since the ( northeners, snow birds, yankees – pick one whatever you like to be called ) have been back in Florida.
    PLEASE, EVERYONE, SLOW DOWN, LOOK TWICE BEFORE LEAVING A LIGHT, STOP SIGN, TURNING INTO DRIVES & PARKING LOTS. NO TEXTING !!!! THE LIFE YOU SAVE COULD BE YOUR OWN!!!
    YES, THIS APPLIES TO (SOUTHERNERS, REBELS, REDNECKS – PICK ONE WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO BE CALLED ).
    Hope I’m politically correct for ALL now.

  • terrible to see this as an avid cyclist. why i stick to sidewalks mostly and trail heads for bicycling. road cycling for transportation or pleasure its never a matter of if its just when. ive known too many people in hernando county that have been killed riding their bicycle. regardless of who is at fault, hopefully a speedy recovery to the injured.
