I was coming down this hill (which is somewhere between 15 and 20 percent gradient) with a dog and a stroller, when I encountered this painful sight.
Upon reflection, I don't want the guys bike to be stolen but I won't cry if he drives it into the top of his garage. It was impossible to get the stroller past the car without going onto the road, which meant hopping the curb, while managing the grade. And note - I was hopping a curb, which means this particular "cyclist" decided to park in the driveway and out onto the sidewalk instead of in either of the two legal, open, on street spots in front of his building.
The stroller was tied to my body or I may have just started beating on the car until he moved it, without that safeguard I'm not sure I would have tried to go around.
For reference - Douglass St just North of Clipper.
