I used to be sheepish about calling out "On your left!" to other cyclists, but I've recently gotten into the habit of it. Mainly because I've had other cyclists give me the same curteousy, and I grew to appreciate it. No malice in letting other people know where you are in space. With a youngin', you gotta prepare for the worst. No telling what he might do even if you call out your presence.

And I'm no Fabio, so wearing a lid isn't really going to kick me down the totem pole of style. Just can't imagine not wearing one. I feel naked without mine on, kind of like not wearing a seatbelt after you've clicked it so many times.

Condolences to this dude's family, but he should have covered his gourd.
