Note to Self - Biking and Pedestrians
OK, ALWAYS announce you are coming/going to pass. Pedestrians are unpredictable - in their own little worlds and just because they might start heading one way doesn't mean they can't stop dead in their tracks and decide to go the other way. And it doesn't help if you like to go as fast as you possibly can. It just might lead to you slamming on your brakes to only sort of bump the pedestrian, and you flying off your bike. Sigh. At least I didn't blame it on the pedestrian, which I had one biker do to me once.
