Serious issue...what should I do?
Ok this A.M. on my commute to work traffic is light and giving me room. it was a cooler morning and I was enjoying my ride.
and then things got very ugly. There is a local trucking company with crap drivers and crappier trucks. Well as I am southbound, a car is coming around me and pushing me hard. I am like wanting to turn and look at him but was scared of it turning my bike and me getting clipped. I continue pedaling I am doing like 25 in a 55 zone, waiting for them to get beside me so I could give them the WTF look. AND THEN WHAM I see this semi truck with trailer also travleing southbound and passing this car who is passing me.
OMG I have no where to go. and I am not going to hit the ditch at 25 mph !! I brake hard start sliding and then release the brakes totally freakked out.
I guess I live, and I wasn't clipped.
This trucking company sends theses guys and their trucks up and down this road all day long. Do I call and complain?? I know I should call, but I am also scared of wondering what these guys are going to do to a dude on a bike on the road they travel for ratting out a co-worker on his stupidity. Although I didn't get a truck # or see the driver.
I wished I had a truck number
3 wide (counting me) on a 2 lane road all going southbound ?
