Shared path idiots

Many of you will know the Shrimpton's creek path in Macquarie Park/North Ryde.

Its narrow, winding, with many blind corners and peds.

So I was tootling along there this arvo at a moderate speed with a guy behind me and there were peds coming up in front; 2 walking in my direction and another three coming the other way. The two groups were about to pass each other.

I slowed to let them organise themselves, and the dimwit behind me decided this was an opportune time to pass; had the three scattering off the path at a great rate of knots.

I apologised to them all for his carelessness as I rolled past.

You sir, are an idiot.

That is all.

Harden up dunc ! Don't waste your time apologizing for someone else's stupidity.

Just say a prayer that Darwin's Law will catch up with him sooner rather than later.

Hot damn! I'd be buggered just riding up to the start line.

How long would the track be?
