Bikers on the sidewalk

A few days ago, I was walking, looking at my phone and a bike rider almost crashed into me. Granted, I was distracted by my phone and should be paying attention to where I am going. However, my calculations indicate that were I to hit anything, it would be a pole, a crack, or another human. I understand and accept that risk. Bikers and mopeds were not part of the equation, though apparently they should be. That’s a much greater risk to our safety and well being.

In this case I believe that we were both wrong, but at the end of the day, I think that he was “more” wrong. You folks know that I support delivery guys, these dudes do a tough job that provides a great convenience to us all. But, that doesn’t mean I want to get knocked into next week by one of them. Please ride carefully!
