Please respect them when you ride.

That third cyclist got to the southbound crosswalk at the Diamond and W. Jemez intersection, looked both ways, and then blatantly ran the red light to cross W. Jemez. Did this in front of a lot of motorists.
After the light changed, Albert and I crossed and were riding south on Diamond. At the first signalized intersection (Embudo, by Building 1498), yet another cyclist ran a red light to cross Diamond in the ped crosswalk.
So of the four cyclists an observer might have seen at that time, roughly 0800, two were blatantly disobeying traffic law. 50%. Small wonder we get the "get off the road" treatment.
Maybe some of you should consider getting off the road. At least until you start being better ambassadors for cycling. Albert and I get a little tired hearing about it.
