I have had a friend knocked off his bike on the Eliza furnace Trail past oakland closer to greenfield. I have asked around to see if this is common–I ride that trail at night alot and usually feel alright. Has anyone else had problems there? I usually feel pretty safe becuase I am on my bike and not walking….Though I’ve had plenty of people yell ugly things at me (and its interesting how often homophobia seems to accompany bike-dislike…) I have never been physically harmed at all.
That said, while I was more likey to yell back at people in past years, I kind of ignore it now. Maybe I’m old and cranky instead of young and indignant now
