Bicyclists not above the law

Reader Input
-A +A
I must say I agree with Chuck Mortensen regarding cyclists (Reader Input, June 30). The other day at the stop sign on East Lincoln Way where the freeway exits I saw two men on racing bikes dressed in their racing outfits approaching the intersection at high speed. I wondered if they were going to make a full stop as cars are required to do. They didn’t even slow down. Why do they ask for the same rights as automobiles and then not have the courtesy to obey the law? They were obviously not involved in a race as it was a weekday. There were no other bikes and no traffic control. Come on, guys. If you want the same privileges as motor vehicles, then obey the law. Like Chuck said, “This list can go on.” Roger Perkins, Auburn
