To avoid collision with a biker not watching where he was going ( three abreast taking the whole path) I had to go off the paved MUP and hit the grass - and do a little dabbing of the foot down to keep my self upright when I went back onto the pavement.
Did 44 miles today - in the last mile, saw three abreast coming at me - not that uncommon, the guy on my side appeared to be moving in then wandered back directly into my path - I shouted " on your left" - he looked up - swerved left, then back right - thankfully - but we were so close, when he swerved to a head-on with me, I took more right and couldn't avoid the grass.
I've been biking about six weeks - four hundred plus miles, the only other really close call some kid in full roadie kit talking up two girls beside him - barely made it back in to avoid a collision with me, I'm shouting "on your left" "give me room"
So far, I only ride this paved path.
I have been thinking about a bell, but these two idiots wouldn't have heard it.
Air horn seems extreme - but I would rather do that than have a collision with some idiot.
Obviously, have to watch more than two like a hawk, but is there anything between air horn and bell?
