I made a big assumption last night when I called out "On your left" to a mom and her little kid. Obviously, the little kid didn't know his right from his left. He cut right in front of me on the bike trail. Rather than crushing the kid or riding into oncoming bike traffic, I ditched. Got a scraped up arm and a bent derailleur hanger out of it. The mom and the kid didn't even show any concern but a few riders came by and offered their assistance.
Could have been worse but I definitely need to be more careful around kids.
