    Same typical stuff happening in Greensboro. I need to get a job, and stop sitting here posting on fox 8 all day. Man, I’m over weight too

    Do you want to die of a heart attack while sitting down or by a box truck cycling take your pick? Lol.

    Very sad. I do think it’s time for GSO and actually, NC in general, to make it a law for bicyclist to stay to the right shoulder of the roads. Not saying this man was in the middle of the road, mind you, but I wish there’d be some common sense laws about bikes being on the side of the road (due to not being able to keep up with traffic) rather than having the right to be all over the road. It’s simple safety. I hate to hear of these things. Very sad.
