Fellow cyclists --
First off, I am new to this forum. :-)
Over the last two weeks I have had two bad experiences with fellow cyclists around here that have really made me look poorly upon some of the community here.
About two weeks ago, I was biking on a trail and had to come to a complete stop to allow a car to pass (it had the right of way). A cyclist behind me didn't stop and ran right into me. No damage was done to me or my bike, but instead of checking on me, he simply stopped to look at his bike and then took off. Common courtesy would dictate that the person at fault would at least check on the person that they hit.
The second incident happened today on the same trail (near Cannary Row for those familar). I was walking on the trail with my mother who is visiting the town. While on the trail, I briefly went into just a portion of the left lane. A cyclist coming the other way at a high speed starting yelling at me and then tried to hit me to make his point that I was in the left lane. Hmmm...he had about 5 feet on my left to pass and at the least could have asked and not yelled.
As cyclists we all need to remain courteous, remember that we don't always have the right of way, and not need to bike at top speeds on city walking trails.
