    Well, the bus was not in service so the driver was in a hurry.

    Today was the day the German drivers were trying to kill me! Two close calls in Frieberg, first, I signaled a left turn, was in the middle of the narrow road, and a driver still tried to pass me on the left only to turn off the road into a business on the right 100 meters later.

    Second was about three minutes later and we are at a stop light across from the Burg, I had signaled for a left turn, but had to stop for a red light, and was about a meter and a half from the center line, a driver pulls up next to us on the right with his left turn signal on. I start across the intersection on the green and sure enough he is turning left. Luckily he didn't run us over, but he stayed on our butts around the curve, made an unsafe pass into oncoming traffic and then made an immediate right turn! Really????

    On Wednesday, I was doing loops on Hains Point and was on the short Buckeye Drive section. A car came the other way (heading southwest while I was going NE) and the driver shouted at me something to the effect that bikes should not be on the road there. There is no sign or road marking which states specifically that bikes are allowed, but there is none that says cars are allowed either.

    When I'm coasting a steep downhill trail because it's semi-technical with a blind curve and slick wet grass clippings ahead, I suppose I don't mind that you passed. You rang your tinkly bell so you must know what you're doing. Fair enough. But after the pass and the technical parts, you can't be angry that I'm behind you. When you pass me I don't cease to exist. Unless I'm asleep in philosophy class and this is all a dream on my way to a D.

    LOL to the tween kid who, on a rough section of trail put his feet out instead of standing up... I can’t imagine that must have felt too good on the tush!
