Can't we all just get along?
One of the great privileges living in Rye is to bike around our great city. On a recent weekend, I was doing just that, sailing down Oakland Beach Avenue on my way out to Milton Point.
A woman drove past me, and from the Captain's Chair in her Starship Honda Odyssey yelled: "Get on the sidewalk!" (along with an implied and very tonal "you idiot"). Phazers ready. Probably on the cell phone, the kids watching separate DVD systems in the back and late to baseball, soccer and ice hockey practices.
Bad day? We are all over work, over scheduled, over played and over stressed.
Maybe I should have been riding on the brand spanking new sidewalk that winds down Oakland Beach. But I'm pretty sure I would have cleared out a few pedestrians along the way.
If each of us (this writer included) started a few minutes earlier, went a little (just a little) slower, there will be plenty of room for all of us.
