This experience happened to my dad and mum several years ago when going on a bike ride. A little insight: my dad is a competitive cyclist who is in crazy shape and loves going on long distance bike rides, he almost qualified for Tour de France when he was younger. My mother used to compete but now she does it recreationally. One summer they took a bike ride to Quebec from New Hampshire to visit some of my relatives (we're French Canadian) while I stayed with my grandmother, since I was really little at the time.
They were biking on a quiet road a couple miles toward the border
when a giant-red pick up truck began to follow my dad closely (since he
had gotten ahead of my mum). The truck then started to swerve back and
forth toward my dad, trying to run him off the road. Since my dad has
dealt with road rage from people, he tried warding the truck away by
shaking his fist and yelling for him to back off. Most of the time this
would work for my dad, but this was much different.
The red truck speeds up around my dad and then pulls over to the side
of the road. My dad then yelled to him asking what his deal was, when
suddenly an old man steps out of the car, reaches in his truck bed, and
pulls out a rifle and points it at my dad. My dad is in shock and at a
loss of words when suddenly my mother creeps up around the corner within
seeing distance. As the man see's my mum, his expression turns from
pissed to surprised as he drops his gun back in the truck bed and floors
it toward the border. If it hadn't been for my mother in plain view of
him, who knows what this senile old man would have done to my dad. My
mother's not really an intimidating person at all, and I still wonder to
this day why he drove off after she appeared. It's scary to think that
somewhere as pristine and quiet as Northern New Hampshire can be the
home to some really fucked up individuals. Ever since this incident
occurred, my parents have always told me to avoid this particular route
when driving to Quebec by myself, instead I go through the route of a
nearby neighboring state.
