I nearly ran over a kid on the way home today. I was cycling down a straight piece of cycle path and noticed some kids playing near to it. One of them ran across the path, so I kept a closer eye on them. Then another started to head across, so I pulled over to give myself plenty of space to get past. Out of nowhere a 3rd sprog on a bike decided to cycle straight across the path in front of me. Despite slamming on the brakes, I skidded straight into them, knocking them off. I wasn't going particular fast, and since they weren't hurt, I figure the shock of me bumping into them was what caused them to lose their balance, rather than me pushing them off. Once I'd made sure they were OK, I was on my way. They looked pretty scared, so hopefully they won't do something as stupid like that again.
