    Double Yikes! Not once, but TWICE on the same ride!!!
    As you pointed out, it is critical to anticipate possible threatening situations — the U turn guy being an exception, no way to anticipate that kind of lunacy.

    Riding south in the country, a pickup was approaching headed north. He suddenly veers into my lane, and just keeps on coming, takes one last swig of beer, pitches the can in the field and returns to his lane just as I am about to bail into the ditch. Jackass.

    Glad you came thru it all!

    Yep, gotta be aware at all times. And — although I’ve owned plenty of ’em over the years without endangering any cyclists — pickups tend to worry me the most. Watch out the driver doesn’t throw his empty right at you! But seriously, it was a rough day when a drunk driver took out two separate cyclists with two separate swerves on the shoulder of High School Road. He was apparently hospitalized after ramming a tree and is awaiting charges.

    What is it with Pick up Trucks (Utes here)? Glad you survived to ride another day.
