Let me set the scene for you. I was riding home from fire practice Sunday night on my Xtracycle loaded with about 40lbs of fire performance gear. It was about 12:20 AM and the sky was overcast, so any trace of the moon was lost. I was on an area of the road where there weren't many street lamps (Pima Rd between Rosemont and Craycroft, closer to Rosemont, for any Tucsonans). A wrong way cyclist was heading towards me sans light, reflector, helmet, and good judgement.
I screamed "Look out, look out!"
He gave me a bewildered look.
I decided that I would go as far right as possible, despite the almost nonexistant traffic conditions. I figure that I should get my body trained to stay to the right for the next time I encounter a nudnik like this.
He must have felt that he didn't want to give up right of way to some nudnik riding legally, as I felt I didn't want to give it up to some nudnik riding illegally, thus we collided.
Apparently, the Gravity Advantage JuJu that Xtracycle touts works...either that or physics are real. My extra stability and momentum made me hardly even veer off course, while his bike was thrown to the ground. When I looked back, I saw he was standing, so I figure he's okay.
I high tailed it out of there in case he wanted revenge. Besides, I wanted some sprint training.
