Ever seen one of these on the bike path during your morning commute?
Follow a triathlon where I wasn't as happy with my improvement as I wanted to be, and with gas prices on the rise, I decided to get more riding mileage by commuting on nice days. They're doing some roadwork along part of the ride to work, and as I come around a turn I find myself behind this guy:
What was funny is that he's just rolling along at about 2 miles an hour when I see him pull over to let cyclists coming the other direction go around him. He doesn't have proper rear view mirrors, so he doesn't see me. I wound up just lifting the bike over the guard rail and doing the rest of the ride on the street. Even with the construction, car commuters were courteous this morning.
