I was about 5 miles into my 34 mile ride this morning. The weather was warm, and the roadies have reemerged.
I passed a smaller, younger roadie on the North Branch MUP near Glencoe, IL. I was going about 19 mph he was clearly slower. I also kept my speed up.
I was surprised to find him right on my @ss a mile later, so I yelled “go-around”, pulled to the right and slowed.
The dumb-@ss hit me from behind. His right shoulder hit my left back-side and he went down!
I stopped, turned around and asked him if he was OK. No reply. I looked him over and asked again “are you OK," no reply. I told him that if he says nothing, I’m just going to leave.
As I rode away he said, “I didn’t expect you to slow down"!
Cry-baby! Is there any-way that I was at fault?
