Maybe the guy didn't think a MTB could be doing north of 20mph.


I think many drivers assume cyclists are going slowly and don't bother
to actually look and judge the speed. Unless they are in the lycra
clown suit, head down and obviously working hard.


Good point. I don't own lycra stuff, always riding in jeans shorts and
T-shirt. Most of them don't have Fox, Rockshox or similar logos and when
coming off a singletrack they can look grungy. The MTB is generally in a
mud-caked condition.
