Beating the system - the cycling commuting section
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
Come on max. Everyone can track stand. Just some longer than others
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill.
Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day.
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.
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.
i love my bike(s)
