"I was not trying to compare the situations.  It was a jogger that passed me on the left making contact with me on a blind curve.  It was a dangerous move that should never have happened.  Fortunately, there was no oncoming traffic."

"FYI, the barrels are gone now. Next someone will ride into a tree and we'll clamor to get them back. The perfect compromise: wraps the trees like goalposts."

"Cyclists on places like the LFP seem much more unaware, as a group, than drivers that it is incumbent on the person making a pass to do so safely, and to *not* do so until they can do so safely. "

"Clumsy it is. Like a "car" road. If you can pass safely, do it. If you can't due to oncoming traffic, then the passer is an asshole. See it so often now, the people who think they can pass safely, but instead, it's all about…"

"Bob, for what it's worth, my compassion is fairly healthy. And at risk of putting too fine a point on it, I didn't call the cyclist "clumsy", I suggested that it was a clumsy attempt at passing if these barrels were in play. I…"
