What happened

Riding southbound on Clark, after crossing Chestnut, I had overtaken another biker. After getting ahead by 20 feet, I began to return to same path as the other biker when a vehicle started exiting the parking lot on the west side of Clark.

The driver appeared to see through me and focused on other vehicles only to block the other rider’s path and continued to pull into the street. The driver forced me nearly into the opposite direction travel lane while a cluster of northbound cars were approaching us.
