Thanks to the guy on the flat bar that cut across me when he turned out of the RAH yesterday and then after I passed him preceded to jump ahead of me at every set of lights that we come to. I ended up passing him 3 or 4 times before I said "Mate is it really that important for you to be first off the lights?" to which I got no response.... oh well some people are just not overly bright I guess

I know it's wrong of me, but every time I see one, I have to fight the urge to give them a shoulder charge. "What, think you're too good to unclip do you? Too pro for your foot to touch the ground, eh?" *whack* *thud*

:lol:

Come on max. Everyone can track stand. Just some longer than others :shock:

If they don't obstruct you for more than 2 secs..... no problem. If they park in front then dawdle / impede you it's a problem.

If there are 10 bikes lined up....i might wait at the back.....i might go around / enter the road. Just depends how late I am / much space there is on the road etc.

I would prefer to be polite and do the right thing but it's just not practically reasonable alot of the time.

You should start running front and rear video cameras and post the footage of the queue jumpers, slow riders, fatties etc etc etc :roll:

There is no such thing as a 'queue' in commuting. Pass me or get over it.

I sometimes wish other riders would pass me and line up before me at intersections. Usually we just line up in the order we arrived there, I sometimes ask people if they want to go ahead of me as I know I probably won't be as fast as them and will just be holding them up and sometimes I struggle at clipping back inas I'm new to it. Having riders behind me only makes me nervous for some reason and it's then more likely I'll stuff up the clip in. I haven't had a rider yet take up my offer to go in front, it seems most people are too polite. The ones that do go past are usually, but not always, the ones who run the light.
