Another Be Cautious to add to be aware list.

Another Be Cautious to add to be aware list.

I was on a ride by myself last week coming thru Rocks St Pk. I was beginning the climb up Rock Ridge Rd (which is a 2nd back county rd and is about a mile long). As I was about a couple 100ft or so from the bottom which is winding for about the first couple 100ft or so. A pickup truck came up behind and stay behind me behind me until he could see nothing was coming the other way. After we got around the bend I waved him on. He went by me at a extremely slow pace, not much faster than I was going. After he cleared me he went to the right in front of me and he went off the road with his passenger side tires. I thought he was gonna stop to ask me something. Stupid thinking. There were two guys in the truck and I'm sure he passenger was helping him to find a patch of gravel.
He managed to get his rear tire into a patch of gravel, then he put the pedal to the medal and took off. Lucky for me he didn't accomplish to much as I felt next to nothing and nothing hit the bike to do anything. He didn't even get a reaction out of me at all, all he did was waste some rubber and gas. But it could have been much if there were bigger stones or more of them. Anyway the moral of this post is even if a vehicle is passing you very slowly and acting like they have your best interest at heart, be careful, they may have other ideas.
