Ok, you know who you are, but this post goes out to the three SUPERJERKS who nearly ran me and Boone over at Smith Lake at Wash Park this afternoon.
Mandy and I took Boone and Lily and Ty and Alison (in visiting from back east) to the park. We rode our bikes. Ty and Ali rode over to the park and Mandy pulled our kids in the trailer.
When we went to leave the park Boone wanted to ride his bike, so Ty got in the trailer and I hung back with Boone. Near the Lily Pond Boone wobbled and toppled and while he was on the ground and I was trying to help him up three ancient old cyclists came barreling through, weaving between us, scowling and then Mandy said as they passed her one of them said to the others "Looks like somebody failed trike 101."
They were flying and they barely missed both of us and they were just as rude as they could be. We were at the park and not inhibiting traffic on a bike trail. If a family can't got to the park and ride bikes then where can they go?
I wish we had been closer to Mandy and the other kids cause I'd have chased them down and let them have a few choice words to burn into their plasticized brains.
