I have noticed that some cyclists take issue with joggers in the bike lane. I agree that when joggers have a good, uncrowned sidewalk, as an alternate to running in the street, they should use it. I have also been alive long enough to know that not everyone will do as they should, and that many will not consider the desires of others. I have also found inner peace in not getting all worked up when people do not behave in consideration of me, and only me.
Yesterday, I had an experience on a club ride that will make it my last ride with that club. The behavior of several of the members toward joggers in the street was so egregious, that it so disturbed my sense of inner peace that I did get a bit worked up over it. It started when one young man, who was ironically wearing a “sharethedamnroad.com” jersey, ran a woman off the street near the start of the ride. I witnessed more aggressive behavior toward joggers by this individual, and others in his grouping, along the coast highway, North of San Diego. This route is very popular with cyclists and joggers.
C’mon people. Life is too short to get upset with joggers in “your” bike lane.
