exactly, that's why people get a hand slapping and don't learn.....so calling the police really is masking the issue and nothing comes from it.........sorry to say but that's the way it is until the authorities take this more serious....maybe if someone in lycra pulls up and kicks this guys ass someday maybe he might get an attitude adjustment.....just sayin.....

I live on Skyline for the last 5 years now. I ride up here all the time. No option, boo hoo for me, right?
In that time, I've only ever had one seriously negative interaction. Ironically - the same vehicle. If you are threatened with a vehicle in this manner. CALL THE POLICE AND REPORT IT. Eventually, they WILL HAVE TO do something about it when they get enough complaints. Or, if he does eventually seriously injur or kill someone - there will be a long standing record of his reckless disregard for bicyclists - and he'll go away for a MUCH longer time.
I called Washington County sheriffs office when he buzzed me and then swerved in front of me trying to force me off the road.
I _believe_ (but am not certain) this is our good buddy Scott Wheeler from Rock Creek Rd. fame who galvanized a local community meeting last summer at the Skyline Grange. Sadly, it's clear his action have not been altered ... or at least he feels "safe enough" to return to his old angry ways with enough time between now and when he last got publicly spanked at the Grange.

I got a clear look at him yesterday (not while riding), and was able to write down his license plate number.
Oregon plate 871 DCN
I've not been harassed by him recently, but know it's only a matter of time. When it happens I will be reporting him to the appropriate authorities.
For those of you who've been tormented by him, you now have the plate number.
