Bad Bicycling

Two women on bicycles overtook me as I came inbound toward Woburn Street. Let's call them Ablivia and Oblivia. Ablivia wanted to turn left at Woburn Street, so she moved left in the crossing until she was completely out of the trail. Oblivia wasn't turning left but wanted to chat with Ablivia until the very last second, so she moved into the left lane of the crossing. She kept that lane blocked against oncoming traffic, forcing an oncoming cyclist to swerve around her and come straight at me. He missed me because he was paying attention.

Neither A. nor O. wore a helmet. If they notice their bad behavior at all, they must imagine that only other people will be injured by it.

Today: 13 miles. This year: 503.4 miles.
