Just venting 'cause I'm ticked off. I decided to go up to the local high school and spin out a bunch of laps on the track. I was alone and about 20 laps into it a family came up to the center of the track - with two young kids, one about 6 and the other about 8 with two bikes, the youngest's had training wheels.
Now, I know the whole family saw me racing around the track. But as maw & paw sat in the dirt, they sent their children out to play & ride bikes on the track. Fine, but they failed to warn these children that there was already someone riding a bike really quickly around the track they were now on. I had to slow to a near stop several times as these kids were continuously weaving and riding directly into my 'lane'. Every time this happened, the parents giggled and said absolutely nothing to their kids about how dangerous this can be. Now, I know the track does not belong to me and other people have the right to use it, but can't you at least say, 'hey, try to watch out for the guy on the bike' after he nearly squashes your children? Or maybe, 'hey, stay in this lane over here since that guy's staying in that lane over there'?
