Open Space completed last summer. *I was on a single track, on the
side of a hill and a woman on a bike was bearing down on me quite fast
wearing an ipod. *She was intent on looking where she was going,
gazing at the trail directly infront of her. *I realized she did not
see me and I yelled at the top of my lungs and she could not hear me
because of the ipod. *She finally saw me just before crashing into my
horse. * Last week the same thing happened to me in the almost same
spot. *A biker was coming towards my friend and I *going quite fast,
looking at the trail directly in front of her which I am sure you have
to do so you do not hit rocks or ruts. *It was obvious that she did
not know we were there. *We both yelled at her and she came to a
screecing stop about 30 ft. in front of us. *She was very nice and
apologetic and said, "I'm sorry, I never saw you because the bushes
block my view of the horses." *Two horses weighting 1000 lbs. with
riders perched on top, making them about 7 ft. tall and she couldn't
see us. *I rest my case."
