Walking along a Shared path at Rhodes I turn to the right (there was only about a person width between me and the right side wall anyhow) to go up some stairs to my building. Except, a cyclist decides to try and pass me with no warning. Yep, he hit me. failed to use his bell or his voice. Gave him a good serve on slowing down and using his bell or voice.
Hang on a minute. You are the cyclist turning right? But you expect the cyclist overtaking you to give the warning? Did you give the legally-required right turn signal??
And why were you so close to the right side wall? Was it a one-way or two-way path?
Methinks I see a reversal of responsibility happening here
I'm a pedestrian, there are no lane markings oy any sort, the stairs to a path to my building ar on the right and I was about a foot from the wall.
Regardless, who in their right mind would try and fly through a gap that narrow?
No reversal of responsibility at all.
