I'm doing McMiles around the golf course loop this afternoon and a wrong way cyclists is doing laps also, but riding on the left hand side of the road, coming right at me, in my lane, twice each lap.
After a couple of passes and very close calls, where I yell at him "you're on the wrong side of the road." I wave him to a stop. He's wearing black and the sun has already set (I have my front light and rear blinker on), no lights and no helmet.
I explain to him its safer to ride with traffic and when he argues I tell him, look I don't care if you want to kill yourself, but you have no right to kill me. He replies with its safer to see traffic coming at him and that he was hit from behind by a car while riding in the right direction in traffic and spent the next year sucking dinner out of a straw. I explain to him that rear end accidents are rare and that he will get really get FUBAR'ed if he hits a car head on.
No reasoning with him. He feels "safer" going agasinst traffic because he got hit from behind and is paranoid.
How do I convince this moron to stop endangering my safety?
