Bicycles on Public Roads

February 07, 2003

I started riding my mountain bike to work about nine months ago. I got cut off by a guy in the San Fernando Valley going up Topanga Canyon. The light was green for me to cross the street. The guy was headed northbound, as was I. He passed me and turned right into me. I had no choice but to lean on his car and turn with him (right turn). When we came out of the turn and he pulled over, I thought it was to apologize. To my surprise, he wanted to fight me. He said I was in his way.

This is not the first time I have had trouble on my bike. Too many people have forgotten that they share the road with bike riders. Maybe someone should remind them.
