...for cars or the max. I was riding east across the 205 and up to the light. I don't cross the max tracks until the crosswalk tells me, I don't have a death wish. As I was pushing the crosswalk button I heard a loud horn and a vehicle skidding. I turned around and saw a new guy halfway across the street, standing next to the max tracks, looking a little dazed and off his bike. I asked the guy next to me on a mountain bike where dude came from. The guy said, "I don't know, he just came up from behind me and cut the car off."

By the time I got to Glisan street, he was waiting at the crosswalk for the light to turn green.

I bet he was looking for the train, and forgot to look for cars. For a guy with with cycling shoes, all spandexed out, with a mirror on his helmet, he didn't really pay attention. I bet next time the dude will obey traffic control devices. And i'm always ignoring stop signs and red lights, but thats one corner I wait for the crosswalk to say "walk."
