This week I opened my big mouth and when I should know better. I was peddling my bike to work when another cyclist zipped by me. He was close enough that I could smell his cheap cologne. Then he did the same thing to several other riders. There was plenty of room and all that manuevering really wasn't necessary. If I had done a quick dodge of a road hazard or car I would have nailed him.I just reacted with "Really?" When we hit the next red light I pulled up next to him and said "I mean really.." He told me if I was going ride slowly I should pull over to the right. I told him I am not the fastest rider nor the slowest so how do we decide who pulls over. I also suggested a quick warning like "On your left" would help. The conversation went no where from there. He insisted I pull over for him. When the light turned green I couldn't contain myself. There was a group of about 15 cylists and I shouted out. "EVERYONE MAKE WAY HERE COMES THE KING. MAKE WAY FOR THE KING," and laughed. He looked at me and said "You have issues," and rode away. . Of course he is right I do have issues. Nothing was accomplished except maybe irratating him. I know there are times to speak up but this wasn't one. What about it sisters and brothers? Are there times when you spoke up when you should or should not have? Are there times when you should have spoke up but didn't ?
