Heads up guys...
I was in the cage a few weeks back and a guy in an old beater was behind me. Right off my bumper. I slowed very gradually (no brake) so he would go around. He passed to the left and yelled something and swerved into my lane. I had to go into half the next lane to avoid a collision.
There are crazy bastards out there. Be careful fellas.
Yesterday a Prius speeding almost nailed us when I was changing lanes (luckily, I pay attention...he was going the same place, more stupidly and doing 60 or so in a 35). We ended up at the same parking lot so I went over and explained (very calmly) that there was a three year old and a pregnant woman in the car he almost nailed. He ws cool about it. I told him to slow down and be careful. Watch your mirrors and don't ever antagonize anyone.
That first guy would have run a bike down, no doubt.
