Last night I started off having problems getting my phone to load my tracking program then nearly fell after losing my balance getting on my bike. I couldn't get comfortable in the saddle. I generally take a warm up lap on the short section of about a mile before I start the rest of the ride. By the time I got back to the turn around point I was really aggravated and depressed. I thought 'I've got to ride somewhere else. I'm getting tired of this trail'. Normally I have to navigate around people walking because they feel they can spread out and walk the entire width of the path. As I neared the trail head I encountered a group of 5 or 6 the completely blocked the path. I slowly and moved to the edge of the pavement so I could narrow the amount of space I needed to get by. The in turn did nothing until I almost reached them then just looked at my like I was supposed to get out of their way. Finally the moved just enough so that I rode between them. I have a bell on my bike and detest it. I don't like saying anything too people because I never know what to expect or how they'll react. The one or two times I have "politely" alerted people to my presence I've heard unwelcome comments about me or that fact they shouldn't have had to move. As I reached the parking lot I was so steamed that I knew if I continued to ride I would have to pass them several more times. I stopped and put my bike up and left. I have rode this path almost everyday for months. I'm of the mindset now that I need to find someplace else to ride now. Thanks for letting me vent friends.
