Reader Rant: Packs Of Bicyclists Slowing My Commute

New, 153 comments

Good lord, let's hope this reader doesn't snap and take out a few of those spandex-wearing crickets. Sending in the above photo, a reader writes: "Am I the only one who is annoyed by this? Almost every morning I have to deal with these packs of bicyclists blocking one lane during heavy morning traffic all the way from Marina through Venice to the end of Ocean Ave in Santa Monica. I'm not talking about one or two bikes, but around 50 per group. Since there is no parking/stopping in that lane past 8AM in order to ease traffic congestion, is there a way to stop these pesky bicyclists from obstructing the flow of traffic and making them use the bike path on the beach instead, or any street other than the main artery through Venice?"
