I was riding in Melbourne today parking the bike on the footpath at Fed Square. I wanted to be as polite as possile when parking the bike as not to make too much noise or go too fast, so I was riding at about walking pace when I past one guy going in the opposite direction who contunued walking along my line of travel casuing me to swerve slightly to avoid him. As I was avoiding him he said to "get on the f***ing road dickhead" I just continued along not wanting to make an issue, but was I doing anything wrong when I wasn't intending to cause any problems? I probably travelled a good 20-30m on the footpath to get the spot where other bikes were parked. Anybody had a similar experience? How do you park your bike without causing issues with the peds?
