Bicyclist rides bus driver for making too many stops

POULSBO — A 36-year-old Poulsbo resident was released after he lost his temper with a school bus driver for stopping too often and interrupting his bike ride at about 3 p.m. June 1 at the intersection of Lincoln Road and Port Gamble Road, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s office.

The bicyclist became irate after the school bus forced him to stop several times, saying it was difficult to build up speed on his bike and the bus kept cutting him off. Deputies reported the man felt the bus driver was doing it intentionally.

The man threw his bike in a nearby ditch after losing his temper, and attempted to gain access to the bus, deputies said. The bus driver closed the doors, but the man continued to hit the windows and yell at her.

The man was released at the scene after admitting he probably didn’t handle the situation as well as he could have, deputies said.

Oh my goodness….I don’t think one of the many Mennonite bikers I pass would do this.  They are always smiling and waving, so I guess I chuckled a bit at this article.  It would be pretty scary though to be there in life don’t you think??
