I’ve been thinking about this a bit since seeing the original post. You seem to be saying it was dumb because he left himself open to being hit by the car? It took me a while to realise/think of that.
My original take is that car was attempting to leave parking spot on busy street. Other cars had pulled up as a courtesy thing to allow this ( common enough, I reckon we’ve all done it). Cyclist saw this, but asserted his rights and continued on, therefore either dumb or discourteous.
Either way, a mistake imo. Stopping would have cost him what? 20 seconds of his time? Where have I heard this before? Don’t matter, he lived, car lived, all is good.
