Occasionally on my way to school, I run into three kids on BMX bikes who want to race me. I'd beat easily, except that they run stoplights. I keep catching up with them, but when I get to school they always laugh at how they beat me and it seems like they want me to get angry or something. How should I react? :quest:

Sit at the lights and time them, then you know their schedules, and don't start the race next time until you're ready.  That'll show em ;)

You might consider reacting like an adult.  If you ignore them a couple of times, they'll get tired of the "game" and not bother with you.  It's not like they are a threat to you.

One of my friends helped me out. He told the guys that he got a ticket for running stoplights. He's a very respectable guy, so I bet he made an impact.

Ya find an large empty parking lot, and after shcool you tell them to put or shut up. I quote my own words i used when that happend to me, The lights saved your butts. And you beat, well savor the moment, cause it won,t happen again, you me parking lot to night, bring your bikes, cause the race is on. 15 laps, full sprint. Then follow iit up by saying, if ya have the courage.  :8|:

Happy R - Don't get sucked into that one...maybe one day you will be the first one at a bus stop and they will show up and then given that most mass transit buses that have bike racks have only two slots, and its first come, first served....ya know!?  Also catching them on a hot day without water while you have water bottle cages? Maybe you see them leaving a mall on a Sunday when the lots don't have many cars and you can in aviation terms, "bounce them". All the Best Mark of the Dalton Boys

I fantisize :eg: about getting them back, but it's just not practical and I have better things to do, like homework. Thanks for the ideas anyway.
