    Hi, cyclist salmoning around cars stopped to allow me to cross as a pedestrian in Ballston, almost hitting me. Don't do that.

    If only Bob had been there, he would have chased you down and given you a stern talking-to, but alas.

    It certainly explains Virginia "State" vehicle inspection requirements.

    ""State"" because we're really a Commonwealth?

    We're a state with an old nickname.

    Careful. Use that terminology at GGW and some pedant will call you out. (This really happened.)

    I slowed last week to allow pedestrians to cross legally in a crosswalk in DC. A cyclist behind me started ringing his bell and charged through them. I did, in fact, catch up with him and told him how stupid that was.

    One time stopped like that once, I was hit from behind by another cyclist (and not someone who was drafting off me). No one was hurt, and the guy was apologetic, but still . . .

    They don't know who they're dealing with.
