Because of the construction, there was no footpath or paved cycle path: just a shared peastone driveway for about 1 km.
As I was walking, I heard a guy yell behind me, "Get off the path, people! This is a bike path!"
A few seconds later, I felt someone push my arm, and then turned around to see a guy fall off his bicycle onto the road.
I guess he hit me, but I hardly felt anything.
He got up, and I saw that he probably weighed half of what I do. He was probably gay, and was with another small gay man.
He was scratched up, and sort of pissed off. As well as scared when he saw how much bigger than he I was.
All this to say... bicycles are more compatible with pedestrians than they are with cars. In this case, it was the guy on the bicycle who hurt himself by running into a pedestrian (me).
Cars kill everyone.
