Rather than talking about how "furious" cyclists make her, it would have been nice had Ellen been a bit kinder to those of us out there braving the road on two wheels. Whether for fitness or commuting, cyclists get to "share the road" with vehicles. Other people, those without the incentive of avoiding bad press, have taken that fury out on cyclists and have badly injured and/or killed them. Of course, I know she's joking, but try putting yourself out there on a bike and see what if feels like to have someone in a 4,000-pound car find you to be a nuisance unworthy of space, safety, or respect - it's not at all fun or funny.
