You'd have to ask the idiot that kicked him wouldn't you? Are you thinking he is a BF member and will answer you here?

He was wobbling pretty badly, Parisians are tough critics.

I usually don't say anything about what forums certain threads belong in, but in this case, I think a more appropriate forum would be in Regional Discussions.

I'm trying to think of something else to say....but I got nothing

Bikes: too many bikes from 1967 10s (5x2)Frejus to a Sumitomo Ti/Chorus aluminum 10s (10x2), plus one non-susp mtn bike I use as my commuter

Not a justification, but a possible explanation.

The path is too narrow to allow safe passing, so a slow cyclist can easily frustrate riders behind him. So, my question is why did the designers of these bike lanes assume cyclists all ride at the same speed?

Yeah he was swerving all over the place, effectively making his bike 10' wide. The kicker could probably claim self defense

What's even more impressive is that it seemed to end as if it's a comedy, no violent fight as would be in the U.S.

No speculation on the man's motivation, but that was a deliberate act of violence.

I'm glad those two (and the camera) were okay.

That combination of coat, shoes, rear rack, fender and reflector, pannier, haircut, and ears, while singly not unique, all in combination, should be easy to spot along the same route and time of day. Being in a foreign country, perhaps best to not commit felony battery. Call the gendarme.

No matter how narrow the path is, kicking the person you're overtaking is a very strange decision, to say the least. It's not a video game

I had the misfortune to drive through Paris traffic at rush hour this morning. I got honked at repeatedly by a truck, who didn’t think I was being aggressive enough to keep people from merging into our lane.


Then a lane splitting motorcycle pounded on my car as he passed me. Not sure why, but I guess he didn’t like my position in the lane.

Parisans are pretty nasty on the road. Ironically I just had driven in Manhattan, and NYC is mellow compared to Paris.

Agreed, and add to that, the other biker had seen him coming and moved out of his way. Yes it's more proper to have moved to the right, but his move to the left was probably due to him looking over his left shoulder and thus inadvertently steering left. But he was well clear of the aggressor, who steered out of his path to get closer to kick the other cyclist.

Hoping for a positive update.
