Lucas doesn’t rub everyone the right way. Here’s what some people have said about him:
I can’t even describe how much that guy pisses me off. He’s part of the reason that people think bikes shouldn’t be allowed on the roads. Thanks for making it hard for everyone else to commute, get groceries, and go to school by bike, asshole. Douchey douchey douche douche douche.
Why hasn’t this idiot been arrested and removed from our streets already? This might discourage the growing sub-culture that emulates his behavior. Can’t his videos be used as evidence in a court of law? Perhaps Bob Mionske would like to comment.
Although Lucas’ self-centered idiocy need hardly be explained to this audience, there’s another aspect that makes it even worse.
Suppose he (or one of his weak-minded acolytes) gets killed doing one of these stunts in traffic. If he’d been base-jumping or doing Lob knows what, then he’d be the only person affected, and we could all invoke Darwin and move on.
But if he gets killed by a car, then the poor driver has to live the rest of their life with the knowledge that he or she killed someone. Even though in this case they’d almost certainly be blameless, this is a horrible thing to live with.
This guy is obviously a psychopath, with no understanding or empathy for others, completely devoted to his own crazy thrill ride.
It’s too bad he can’t just be pre-emptively locked up.
…brunelle, you are a self righteous, vainglorious, smarmy little shitstain…
…your whole selfish, entitled schtick is full of holes but you’re so caught up in yourself that you can’t see how your actions affect others…
…when you finally ‘buy it’, your eulogy won’t be “we admired how he lived his life on his own terms…”, it’ll be “we told him so…but he was all about himself…”…
Dear Lucas Brunnelle, As a motorist, I want so say thank you for being a completely self-absorbed twat in traffic, there aren’t nearly enough of those. As a cyclist, I also want to say thank you for validating society’s anti-cyclist attitude and potentially increasing the amount of harassment that I receive from motorists as I go about my business in a socially respectful and law-abiding manner. As a pedestrian, I’ll just say that if I see you coming at me like that, I will knock you off of your god-damned bicycle. As if I didn’t get enough disrespect from motorists and snow plows… Sincerely, Fuck you.
Oh man! Mr. Brunelle you are such a big man breaking the law, sticking it to the man and putting down bike advocacy. Brunelle is just another clown out there; he is just another guy trying real hard not to grow up by acting like an immature teenager. Sure he can do whatever he wants, but unfortunately his behavior not only puts him at risk but innocent people as well and there he crosses the line.
fuck this, fuck mash, fuck macaframa, fuck to live and ride in LA. these kids think that theyre awesome/talented.? they all ride like assholes.
I’d prefer almost anything over watching a bunch of arrogant and self-obsessed assholes do the cycling equivalent of wanking all over me, which is what Brunelle and his cohorts are effectively trying to do.
