"Beware the pink Barbie horn," says Kerry Foster. "If you cut me off I'll hunt you down."
...And Foster, a Valkyrie if there ever was one, was offering up free assertiveness training advice to her more timid cycling counterparts.
"If someone cuts you off, ride like hell until you catch them at the next light," she said. "Then park your bike crosswise in front of them until they roll down the window."
"Then, in your most demure tone, tell them you aren't moving until you get an apology," she said. "Even if it takes three or four lights and the traffic is lined up for blocks, don't move."
...Leading the charge of the storytellers was Foster, who regaled rapt riders with stories including one in which she was slapped on the backside by a passing motorist.
"I swear, if I could have caught that guy, I would have killed him!"
Foster said she chased the ass-slapper five blocks before he escaped.
