Years ago i had an old man whack me his cane as I was riding slowly through a neighborhood. I have no idea why. I think he was deranged. It was a 25 mile speed limit and I was going even slower than that because i was trying to find a friends house i hadn't been to before. Dude steps out in the street and and swings his cane at me so feebly it was laughable. I barely felt it glance off my shoulder and I just kept going. Some guys just hate bikes I guess.
