What’s up with unfriendly bikers?

There seems to be an epidemic of unfriendly bicyclists in Davis lately. I was standing with a group of runners on the street near the start of a bike path when a bicyclist cussed at us for being in her way. We really do our best to share the road and warn each other when a bike is “up” or “back” so we can move over.

Most of us are bicyclists, too, and understand that street bikes on a smooth path are silent. If a biker wants to pass or have people make way, give some warning. Use a bell or smile and say “on your left.” Road rage is just as ugly on two wheels as behind the wheel.
