I was out riding tonight on a 2 lane (1 lane in each direction) deserted road. I had just finished coming up a steep hill and I was on a straight-a-way when I saw a car in the distance behind me. For some reason I wanted to switch to the other side of the road where there was a paved shoulder (not a sidewalk) to ride on. So Iím riding along and all of a sudden the car that I saw behind me in the distance swerved over to the opposite side of the road, came within inches of hitting me, then he swerved back to the correct side of the road.
I was really f**king pissed off, and for good reason! The a**hole swerved over to the opposite side of the road just to do that! I started to peddle faster and tried to follow him down a street that he turned off on to, but obviously him being in a car, and myself being on a bike, he was gone.
I rode home, which took another 20 minutes; I showered then got into my car to try and drive around the area where I lost him. I drove around for 45mins to try and find the car, but I couldn't find it. I wanted to get the license plate number, and the address that the car was at so I could report him to the police. Iím glad that I at least switched to the opposite side of the street when I noticed the car in the distance, who knows what would have happened if he came up directly behind me while I was on the same side of the road as he was.
On a lighter note, about 20-30 minutes before that happened I almost got sprayed by a skunk that I rode by. Iím really glad that he didnít get me. But I am much more relieved that the idiot in the orange Mazda 3 didnít hit me!
