About five years ago I was riding with three old guys in the middle of nowhere. A super wealthy resident guy rolled up next to us, nosed us in, and got out of the truck with a gun yelling that he was trying to protect his family.
People are fucking ridiculous. I have had guns threatened to be pulled but haven't had one actually pulled on me yet. I'm not the type to carry, but all these incidents are kinda making me consider it. I think I mentioned it here before, but one guy said if he sees me ever again he's going to murder me and throw me in a ditch. I purposefully went for the lightest traffic route I could (basically neighborhood side streets with like 1 car every 2-3 mins) just to avoid getting in the way, but people have a really hard time dealing with turning their steering wheel 10 degrees to the left briefly, and then 10 degrees back to the right.
I can't even ride on a damn bike path without being harassed!
"GET ON A SIDEWALK AND STAY OFF THE STREET!"
"Alright, fine, you're too dangerous, I'll just ride the same old MUP every day and you won't have to deal with it"
"I'M STILL MAD!"
