I knocked down a pedestrian on my way into work today. He ended up flat on his back in the middle of the road. I felt awful. But he was at fault. It's gonna take some learning for people to work out the cycle paths thing. Basically I had a green bike light up ahead and was cruising along on a slight down slope, pedestrians were crossing in the same direction on the street, and cars were also going. The guy just veered off into my path without looking and I had no were to go. More pedestrians or cars either side and the roads were wet so I couldn't stop in time. I skidded but still took his legs out from under him. He apologised I apologised but we were both pretty shaken. It being almost 9am and in the middle of a busy street we carried on our separate ways. I hope he's okay... and I guess he won't do it ever again!
