Indecisive Pedestrians

3 months ago...more

Riding along a quiet single track country lane I saw a couple walking either side of the road. I dinged my bell repeatedly, eventually the male responded with a wave. There then followed a great deal of indecision as to who was going to stand where. At the last minute the guy moved back into my path. I see this all the time when pedestrians think it is safer to stand either side of the road instead of on one side. He shouted I should slow down! Moving at 23mph is not exactly fast, again people think anyone cycling at over 10 mph is dangerous. This was a road not a footpath.
