View Full Version : In the Pearl

After reading some other posts, this may sound wimpy, but here goes.

I was riding in the bike lane west on Lovejoy near 10th at around 6:45 PM on May 16. It's a fairly congested area. I'm moving along at about 10-12 MPH, having just started up. I notice that the minibus (not TriMet) to my left is stopping in the middle of the block. It turns out he was letting a jaywalking pedestrian through. She steps into the bike lane giving me just enough time to quickly brake and avoid hitting her. I stop within two feet of her and give her the stinkeye. She say's "It's okay; you're okay."

My reply: "I know I am!" I then rode off. What nerve! She effs up and talks to me like I was in the wrong.

Yeah, I know, not a big deal, but it chapped me!
