i knocked a fella flying years ago on the path . it was a long steep uphill and i has head down making the bike twist under me . next thing i know im on the ground and a bloke is lying a few feet in front of me . i was a bit dumbfounded and took a few moments to regain my composure just as he was realising what had happened . he wasnt best pleased as he chased me up the road
why didnt he move ? mustave seen me and realised i wasnt looking
id have been on the road but i went into the rear of a parked car the exact same way a week before leaving a sizeable dent in the boot lid
it was all about getting to where you wanted to be the quickest way possible back then . all summer the roads were solid with morons trying to drive to the beach and not leaving space between each other so paths were often the only option . ive never seen the point walking on a path with a bike , you become twice the width and are there for twice as long as if you just rode
a mate of mine got nudged by a taxi once , so he threw his bike at the windscreen . i guess the driver had his pit crew change it , the way they drove they must be racing drivers
