Public Apology

I would like to publicly apologize to the driver of the green SUV, UT plate # Z21 6JF for forcing you across the double yellow line as you passed me climbing the overpass heading into Spanish Fork. I am sorry for the fear that you experienced by not being able to see oncoming traffic because of the crest of the hill. Also, thank you for informing me that I should get off my bike and walk it if there is too much debris on the shoulder. I am so sorry for implying that if you encounter a slow moving vehicle you should slow down and wait behind it until it is safe and legal to pass. Furthermore I was unaware that you were headed to work and I was just being “egotistical and getting a workout”. It was my mistake to mention that I too was going to work, hence the bag I was carrying, because as you kindly pointed out, that was irrelevant. Lastly I would like to apologize for just riding away and not bitch-slapping you back into reality, cause you clearly needed that.

  1. Racer, you ‘see’ things much clearer than I.
    Since May, the owner of the SUV musta moved and got new plates (law abiding citizen). Said driver seeing my flashing tail lights cut it close in passing me in the bike lane. Then seeing my approaching flashing front light and the steady one too, pulled over to completely block the bike lane. I wouldn’t have referred to his posterior had he not waited until I was at his rear passenger door to make his sudden right swerve.
