Pardon the 10-year old reference, but I thought I was going to see someone die yesterday on the way home. The Montrose intersection of the path is not the time to prove how fast you are. People heading to the dog beach at the end of a long work week or leaving the park before it gets too crowded don't give a shit that you're that much faster than everyone else. They don't like cyclists, and they especially don't like to stop.
Take it easy and make sure you're around to do the same thing tomorrow. Yikes.
