    Reynoldsburg, OH - I found that one ahole

    So I'm riding through Reynoldsburg, OH on Main St. as I do every day for an hour to make sure I keep in shape. I'm riding my usual course, down a few banks, jump a few parking lot transitions, down a narrow bridge across Blacklick creek and then there it is...

    Silver Dodge Intrepid pulling onto Main St., or at least trying to. He pulls up enough to cover the sidewalk, the same one I'm barreling up to at ~10-15mph. I figure he will do what everyone else does and slap his shifter into reverse let me pass and continue on his leisurely way.

    Nay. This a**hole sits there. I understand that at this point I have made a commitment to him moving. That was poor judgement on my part. I'm blocked off on the right exit so I can't bail into the adjacent parking lot without taking a spill over a retaining wall. On the left I have Main St. in a busy suburb (20-30 cars per light change), a busy street. I sure as hell wasn't going over this guys hood, so in a move of desperation I smash my back brake and head for the road.

    I had my brand new Rock Shox locked out so leaving the curb at such speeds was not fun and as I got into the road and started to pass the Intrepid's front license plate I saw my demise... A light pole and no room between the curb incline and the car. I did what came natural I bunny hopped, as well as I could, which is terrible, and my front tire was short planted in the loose rock debris and washed out aganist the curb while my back tire followed suit.

    I slid about 4-5 feet on my stomach and palms. I was really winded from riding hard and now it felt like I got kicked by a ninja. The guy rolls down his window and says "Ya aiet?" Doesn't want for me to say anything and drives off.

    It tore my rear derailleur cable off, bent my brand new shocks tube, bent my crankset sprocket and knocked my handlebars loose.

    I ended up walking into a local pizza shop and explained what was going on, they let me wash up, gave me a pair of channel locks to repair my sled and sent me on my way. Needless to say, I will be ordering pizza there the next time I get hungry.

    I wish people would give a shit and move off the damn sidewalk. And to the guy in the silver Intrepid, thanks for being such a douche bag.

    Don't know what to tell ya dude. Sounds like you were riding too fast in an urban environment. Sucks that you crashed but to me it sounds like that Intrepid was just trying to pull into traffic. Maybe you should stay off Main street.

    Well I would agree, Main St just happens to be perfectly straight for miles. So I find it way safer than in the congestion that is the East side of Columbus. Normally when a biker is spotted from a distance they move. Eh, it was just a bad situation. I think that cars need to respect pedestrians and bikers more. Good for everyone.

    Well duh, but the sidewalk isn't even suitable for 3 yo's on balance bikes much less someone going 15 mph.

    You don't think riding on the sidewalk is acceptable, or do you mean no preferred? When you live in the city and you have to get out and ride, it's hard to avoid sidewalk riding all-together. I do my best to take alleys and as many non-sidewalk routes as possible but sometimes it is inevitable.

    I don't understand what you mean it isn't suitable?

    I do most of my urban riding and exercise after I'm off work (around midnight-3am), so it's easy to ride where ever I want. However, at any other hour I stay off the sidewalks for this exact reason; No motorist is checking sidewalks for vehicle traffic, only the roads... also very little margin for error, obstructions, cracks, etc etc. Not to mention it's also illegal in Ohio to do so.

    Sucks you learned the hard way, hope you have a speedy recovery!

    You should have just locked up the rear brake and did a mega powerslide, looking all cool an sh!t!

    Well I learned something...
    I didn't know you weren't allowed? Honestly, I thought if there was a sidewalk and a road the sidewalk was where you were to ride. Good to know though.

    I guess that is what I get for posting a story about my bike riding experiences and not having 10 years under my belt. I suppose in the future to avoid being bantered by a douche or two, I'll just sit and read the repetitive stories about Whistler and your expensive bikes while I ride my 13 year old Hardrock.

    So I'm just taking my normal route down Main Street, looking for a few children to bunny-hop, maybe a couple pan-handlers to grind, or a sidewalk sale to transition in and out of, when all of the sudden this dude comes out of Starbucks with his double mocha latte. I reach hard for the brake, but no time. Instead I bank hard, and there's a couple veterans sitting on lawn chairs selling Memorial Day flowers. They saw me coming and didn't even move. Usually when the veterans see a bike coming they move, but not these A hole Veterans. Good thing the pizza shop had an awesome set of tools. And to those D-bag WWII vets, greatest generation my arse.

    Sure, Slow Danger you were right on here. Man is the bike community this bad. You're nothing but a troll. When do you ride and where? Because as a father of twins who works two jobs to support my family, I ride when I can. I respect everyone on the road, sidewalk and in parking lots but I don't have the luxury of living anywhere close to a proper trail that isn't paved / exciting to ride.

    Thanks for douching up my post. I appreciate it, lame ass.

    Well, good riddance to you few that have nothing better to do than troll my post. I was just trying to share.

    You all have such a great community, shame I had to find all the people whom don't have anything better to do with their day other than rag on a new member. Very welcoming crowd you are. I hope the bikers in my community are nothing like you few who did decided to try and humiliate me?

    Lighten up. You were going way too fast on a sidewalk if you can't stop in time.

    In some towns, only children or adult chaperones of children are allowed on sidewalks. Also, bikers on sidewalks should ride defensively since drivers and pedestrians don't expect an aggressive entitled biker barreling through.

    Goes to get strawberries. Point of order. When it was pointed out to you (subtly, I might add) that riding on the sidewalk was not really the appropriate course of action you didn't like it and went on the offensive. Try some tact next time.

    relax. you were one bunny hop away from it being a great close call ninja skills story. ya stacked it because of a bad decision and lack of skill. we've all had 'em in some form or another. you can't blame the truck for not moving anymore than a tree for getting in your way when you crash. laugh off the ego butthurt and be glad you're alive for your kiddos. you got away with one.

    You started it, man, not us. Hope you learned something about riding in traffic though (yes many of us have years of experience but isn't that why you posted here in the first place, to get a perspective from more experienced riders?). Your own account of the situation showed that you were in the wrong and when its pointed out you got defensive and started flaming away. I bet you're going to have an answer for each post from here on out, which will keep the troll thread going for awhile. It'll be fun while it lasts. Good day.

    Hughes, I'm just messing with you. Guess nobody warned you about the OC before you chose to introduce yourself with a complaint thread. Though I do appreciate the argument that cars should be more mindful of bike riders, that argument gets undermined every time I see an urban biker blow through red lights and ride 20mph on sidewalks. I am sorry to hear your bike got beat up. Parts get expensive.

    Seriously Hughes, this is the Off Camber forum, other wise known as the OC, there's none of that $hit talk in here about Whistler or expensive bikes. As for a 13 yr old hardrock, this is probably the only forum where no one will be serious when they give you a hard time about how old or cheap your bike is.

    Man, it's not called trolling or douching and no-one is trying to humiliate you. It's called hazing, a welcoming rite of passage or ritual to our family. There's nothing you can do, you're one of us now so you may as well just sit back and enjoy the ride. Welcome, and thanks for posting.

    Rep coming your way when I can.

    Now where is that video of the bloke jumping over people walking down the sidewalk?

    My road bike is a 13-year-old Specialized. My commuter is a 40-y/o Schwinn. I still don't ride on the sidewalks. Mostly because I learned at a young age (13 years old) that the sidewalk was too narrow and confined for any actual riding.

    Well maybe if you learned to use both the rear brake and the front brake in unison this whole thing could have been avoided. Do you drive a car like you own the road and no other person makes any mistakes. Defensive driving and defensive riding especially while urban assault riding can really make a difference in how your day turns out.

    I just saw this on the Intrepid forum.

    Stupid mountain biker riding in the city like an idiot.

    Today I was pulling out in traffic and nudged my car up towards the street. In the distance I saw this idiot riding on the sidewalk like a jack ass. Anyways, he was far enough off I figured he would have enough room to stop. Instead, what does the dumb a$$ do...., he speeds up. I have no idea why, it was like the idiot was playing chicken with a car. Then the moron runs over the curb and in front of my car like a total moron. Then right in front of me he wrecked. It was like he didn't have any brakes or maybe he just didn't know how to use them, I don't know. I asked if he was alright and he mumbled something stupid about a shock being locked out. Didn't quite understand since I have no idea why you need a shock to hop off a curb but whatever. So after checking to see if he was ok, I drove off. Lucky for him I saw him coming though because there was a break in traffic and I was about to pull out. If I didn't see this idiot, he would have been a lot more hurt or possibly dead. Oh well guys, make sure you watch out for bicycles. Most of them are cool but there are a few idiots out there with a death wish and don't realize that their bike is no match for a car that weighs 100x more.
    Hmmm, looks like somebody else had a similar experience.Name:  SmileyDunno.gif

    Let me hook you up with the proper technique should you find your self in this situation again.

    Head straight AT the offending car. No brakes, you will need your speed for this. Best spot to aim for is the hood, but trunk and even roof will work in a pinch. At approx 3 -6 feet (depending on speed) from the car bunny hop as hard as you can while twisting your torso to invert your body. This sounds hard but is quite easy. Think Beastie Boys sabotage video... what you are going for is a back slide across the hood with your bike held aloft above you. With enough momentum you can easily angle the bike out in front of you as you slide across. When you fly off the far side of the car you drop the wheels back underneath you with out even slowing down.

    Where this can be problematic is older cars that are not well maintained. With out enough wax on the paint job you just kinda stick where you land, so be sure to only try this with shiny paint jobs.

    No broken bike this way, no injuries, and HUGE style points. I met every one of my x wives this way. Granted, i often go out INTO traffic to perform this move if i see a hot woman driving a nice car. I dont recommend doing this in traffic until you have perfected the dismount. Keep it on the sidewalk for now.

    Hughes..........

    I do believe there are plenty of bike paths in the area you are talking about. I have built many of the bridges on said paths.

    So, have your parents walk you to them. They may wait for your return. If you were my kid, I would leave you there.

    You are lucky the homeboys in the Intrepid didn't beat your arse.

    Get Strava, and make a loop around your block. Do time trials. Just stay safe kiddo.

    Awesome Kjlued!!

    OP- Chill man. When riding a bike you are just as responsible as driving a car. You must be aware of your surroundings and not driving/riding like a jack ass. You broke rule #2 when riding. You were not in control and obviously had a lack of skill or ability to control your bicycle in such a situation. I know it sounds petty, but its actually pretty serious. Pedestrians, hikers, horses, ATVs, cars, trucks, little kids laying in the trail waiting to be bunny hopped, dogs, cats, or even a sasquatch are all obstacles we can run into that are unaware of us on bikes or how bad ass we feel at that moment while riding.. Now, if you didn't have a helmet on... whew...that's rule #1! Your in for it!

    Welcome to the O.C, you have made quite an entrance.. I still say you should have did a mega powerslide.. It would have been sick.

    I hope the bikers in yours and every other community is not like you because we do not need anymore negative perceptions from the few sh!tty bicyclists creating more laws negatively affecting the rest of us.

    I guess that is what I get for posting a story about my bike riding experiences and not having 10 years under my belt. I suppose in the future to avoid being bantered by a douche or two, I'll just sit and read the repetitive stories about Whistler and your expensive bikes while I ride my 13 year old Hardrock.
    Dood - you can't be serious.

    You were riding on the sidewalk ( a no-no 'generally' - if you must, you are the 'LCD', so ride with that in mind) at a high rate of speed - AND you EXPECT someone to get out of your way?
    And what if he couldn't? Say there was another car behind him?

    And who are you calling a 'douche'?
    Honestly, you seem to be the douche IMO.

    Look, Post a map - maybe we (I) are wrong.
    Draw arrows and whatnot on it and shtuff.

    I - as am sure others do - welcome you to the OC; 'Where ...(hey, we need a motto or something)'



    Anyways - as an offering of hospitality, I'll find your best post (IMO) - rep that - and see if I can still give a chicklet in a single rep (it's been a while - so I dunno if I still got 'it' )

    **EDIT** - ~Blows on knuckles~ Yeah, I got it
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Hey Hughes, post up the name of the pizza place that helped you out, and we'll all go write them a nice Yelp review.

    When was the last flame thread in the OC? My guess 1994' ...oh wait the OC only started in 2011' or 2012'. Never has there been one this attractive.

    This thread has to do with bikes and so it is in the wrong forum anyway. But please don't let that deter you OP from continuing this Love Fest.
