His tire hit the curbe with forced him to fall off his bike (because he was going so fat) right in front of me. I had to swurve so I didn't hit him and almost crashed into the car besides me in the other lane. I dont think people should ride their bikes on roads unless they're in a cycle lane. I know it's legal and they have every right to, but do any drivers here get nervous when drive past a cyclist? I was never keen on them to begin with and i'm certainatly not now.
