I have a had a few run ins with cars and pedestrians, but nothing that I have not been able to adapt to. Bicyclist are on another level though. I almost collided with a guy on a mountain bike earlier today approaching a semi - blind corner on one of my local paths. I was going at a rate of speed where I could stop, but the bicyclist was going too fast to react and decided to try and plow through me. I am not a little guy so I stood my ground after stopping which caused the bicyclist to veer off of the path. no crash or anything, but it was all my fault and I should not be on the "pedestrian" path with a scooter...
At this point in time the bicyclist is very angry and is coming towards me in a very aggressive manner. I suggested that he pause and look at the situation from a different perspective. I also pointed out that he was riding his bike on the "pedestrian" path at a rate of speed that he could not safely stop at. Valid point, but it was still me and my stupid scooters fault.
I walked away from the situation before it escalated further, but this was not the first time that I came across a bicyclist riding too fast on paths in my neighborhood.
Any similar experiences?
