My bad, I almost changed lanes into this rider this morning.
I've seen him a couple of times in the last month or so...he usually passes me when the #1 meets into Hastings just before 9am.
He's on a newer flat black bike R6? R1? ...wears all black racing leathers, metallic light green and silver helmet and dark backpack.
So anyways, this morning, traffic seemed a little heavier on Hastings. I went to change from the middle lane to the slow lane in front of the PNE there (that lane is usually clearer cuz the buses use it), and just as I was getting into the lane, I hear this "beep-beep" and he's waving at me from the lane I was going into right beside me! I was like "HOLY CRAP! where'd he come from?"
I felt pretty stupid...seriously, I didn't see him. I so glad he beeped. If you read this rider, I'M SO SORRY DUDE!
I'm so focused on watching out for cars, that I wind up forgetting about other fellow riders...
Anybody else done that? You know, you think it's clear, and boom! another rider pops out of seemingly nowhere, although he was there all along? Ok, maybe it's just me...sleepy head.
