Bike track crash // at 23:59
Ouch. I'm all stiff and sore from a collision on the bike track this morning; I came up behind the usual group of pedestrians blocking the path (as expected), I started to go around the last two on the right, as soon as they saw me they jumped in front of me (as half-expected), I swerved to the left off the path and onto the grass and too late saw the rider coming the other way who'ld also swerved out onto the grass. End result, me with a bruised knee and a stiff neck, the other rider with a very sore elbow, and a group of walkman-clad students blithely continuing on their way filling up the shared path — I'll probably meet them again tomorrow.
