This morning's ride to work was a little different and little less boring than usual thanks to two high school students near North Central. In the space of 1-1/2 blocks they each took a turn at walking out into the road without looking for traffic--right in front of me. Both were shocked, startled, amazed and surprised when I almost hit them. They must have great peripheral vision for cars but poor for bikes. And bright, screaming-yellow-zonker jackets. And flashing headlights. Hey, it's not like I'm trying to sneak up on them.
