Commuter diaries - share the path
Yesterday when I was out on a 30 mile training ride, a youth on a bmx rode across on coming taffic and skidded in front of me! I slammed on the anchors and pulled an endo on my Allez Elite. What an idiot! Some of these younsters give cyclists a bad name; the number I see around town without lights at night is amazing and you can bet your life if there ever an accident, god forbid, then the motorist would be the one to blame. If I had been going any faster I would have ploughed straight into him, on the open road! It really left me shocked.
Share the path, share the road, but should we with irresponsible cyclists who do nothing but damage our powerful movement?
