Okay. Maybe I have the rules wrong. For some reason, I thought that bike or skateboard riding was prohibited on the MAX platforms. That is, no actual using them while seated or standing on them. And I certainly didn't think that I'd have to leap out of the way when this guy who kept approaching me while on his bike would not get off it or stop riding it or even change his path to avoid a collision.

Silly me. I guess being called a "crazy bitch" just because I jumped out of the way for my own safety (and also his, believe it or not) was totally warranted. =P

I'm sorry this happened to you. Rules don't have much effect on douchebags with aggression problems. If we (the riding public) are lucky, maybe he'll do something stupid in front of a Tri-Met cop. We can hope, anyway.

No, you've got the rules right.

Though it gets interesting for a few max stops along I-205, as there's a bike path that ruins along the "back" side of the areas (at least that's what it does at the Parkrose and Gateway locations.

But you obviously encountered a jerk.
