bicycle rider/skateboarder who does
not follow rules or, especially, common sense when riding on streets with cars. Mostly seen
in college towns or larger
urban settings. This can also pertain
to walkers, stroller pushers, joggers
and fitness fanatics who "can't let my heart rate drop". Unfortunately, sometimes it drops to ZERO bpm.
ASU has a large
number of bumpermagnets on the street. Especially between
8AM and 3PM.
The best way to become a bumpermagnet is to wear headphones while skateboarding
in traffic. Lucky is when
you just get a case of road rash.
This bumpermagnet was nothing but a smear on the pavement when
he ran a stop sign when
a bus was coming.
