Hard to understand what he's saying. What was the gist of his concerns?
Here is what he says: "Zero emissions, it's a lie, it's a lie," "This is zero emission" (points at himself) "Five, five litres per hundred" "They lied to you" "bullsh*t car" "Zero emissions Ya boo boooo booo" "Five liters per hundred, that is what that gets" "Your wrecking the planet, should have kept your old car" "Booo, booo" "Piece of sh*t" "That battery needs to be replaced cost you more than that car you know"

So, what's the alternative (besides riding a bike)? He'd prefer sucking down the diesel emissions of a non-BEV, instead?

Strange guy.

I’ve had periods when I did a lot of cycling, and I can say that in terms of dollars per mile, the candy bars, chocolate milk, and Gatorade it takes to keep me going add up fast. I’m not exactly zero emissions either :oops:
i believe in replenishing my caloric deficit with beer and pizza post ride. does that make me worse or better?

Uh, pretty sure that humans produce CO2 with each breath and produce methane from the other end. For this biker, I can't tell which end is producing what . . .

Such a strange cyclist. As a cycling commuter almost all year I just love EVs which don't stink those terrible diesel fumes and particles.

Now we have also gotten quite a few EV buses in our city, reducing the air pollution even more. Those are fantastic because ordinary buses also make a lot of noise.

I'd love to pull up to this bicyclist with my Pedal Assist Bike.

If we're trying to play superiority games; what's more superior than a Pedal Assist Bike?

Lots of the same benefits of biking while not having to eat tons of bacon just to be able to do so. Plus pedal assist bikes can take off pretty fast.

There is a "cycle club" out of Pensacola, FL that loves to ride like a herd of cattle 5 abreast on two-lane roads and then act all butt hurt if you dare attempt to pass the slow-moving road block and they wonder why people hate them. State law states 2 abreast is maximum and to stay close to the RH side. Pepper spray, (bear-b-gone size) makes great deodorant I hear when sprayed out the window.

It is just so inhumane to even consider hurting other people because your travel is delayed by a few seconds. I expect better from EV owners.

You have obviously never been stuck behind a gaggle of entitled "adult" children on bikes blocking the road for MILES with no chance to pass and the speed is regulated by the slowest member of the riding pack, I am talking about groups of over a HUNDRED at a time blocking the whole lane for over a quarter of a mile in the country with winding roads and cars stack up for a long ways. State law states "keep to the extreme RH side of the road and only two-abreast", what happened to share the road, these fools feel that does not apply to them since they are special. When you beep your horn they just give you the finger and further block the road. When I personally spoke with the sheriff about the situation he stated that they had not bothered to coordinate the large events with the sheriff's office as required and he would be happy to enforce the law since they are creating a dangerous hazard to themselves and to others on the highway. My nephew is a deputy and he helps to keep the roads safe from drunks and entitled cyclist as part of his job. By the way, not for a few seconds, I am talking about a :30 parade till I was able to turn off and seek another route. In this part of the county there are limited alternate roads so we are trapped behind these two wheel morons.

See the video and you may understand the situation:
