Is it time to start calling out bad cyclists?

  • I hate those morones who think they're so cool poppin wheelies.

    Only because you can't do it.

  • Do bad cyclists include those who use taxi's to drive them AND their bike home?

  • @gaz545

    Has to be said the teen doing the wheelie right at the end was pretty good, just a shame he was doing it in the wrong direction.

  • Bothwell that's called wing mirror jousting. It should be saved for the correct time and place, but hey it happens to the best of us.

    Some old geezer tried to run me over in a super market car park, then as he reversed to have a second pop I accelerated, swerved and kicked his mirror clean off. He gave chase and we played ring a ring a rosie round a bollard till i could make good my escape.

    double ninja edit*

  • load up with cards for cycle training and start handing them out to cyclists that are a bit dodge.
    "I'm not being cheeky but.. you may want to do some training" hand over card, saunter away from lights...

    Repped

    Unrelated to road conduct but there's a guy on a bike that spits, swears and shouts abuse at our rowing team by the Lea. As he hates rowers. Ironically we're all female cyclists who ride there. Way to go dude.

    Who teh fuck hates rowers? It's not like he was cut up by one the other day on his cycle path?! Haha nutjob.

    A reckon that guy's gotta be a coarse fisherman.

    I did something very stupid the other day.

    Riding along north bank between chelsea and pimlico along the main road (40mh I think), ...

    As far as I know there are no 40mph roads in central London, with the exception of a few flyover or major link roads like the A4 around Chiswick or the Westway. People drive too fast, often at 40mph, all along the riverside roads, it's true. But they're 30mph.

    I reckon the 'silly cyclists' videos are just annoying. +1 to RPM, why would you want to re-live that? And put that utterly annoying music on the edit? You seem like a plonker to me. Sorry. But it has to be said. You seem as if you might be projecting - disappointment at your own faults onto others, perhaps? I find myself doing this a lot when I am riding and get frustrated at other riders actions, things that I think I would never do, be in truth have done in the past. I bet you have undertaken a car at the lights in the past, and seen better of it. Good on you. You are still learning. You sure you should be making videos about it?

    I can't believe I am quoting this, but 'Let he who is without sin cast the first stone' I feel probably means: Don't throw stones! Ever!

  • ^Have you looked at his other videos? Not all of them are about cyclists (more about bad driving).

    I think videos are more valuable than anecdotal evidence. He has quite a few examples the kind of bad driving that gets mentioned on here often. Far more compelling than the "I did this...", then "He did that..." version of events.

  • Remind me never to cycle with any of you lot, FFS.

    Perhaps you could enlighten me on what transgression occurs at 0.40. I don't doubt there is one...

  • Pointless irritating scooty scoot scoot down the inside of a car, then move away at a pace which forces car to repass the cyclist within a few yards. Very similar to stupid nodder cunts doing the same thing to other cyclists at lights.

    1. Consider previously witnessed/anticipated speed of vehicle in front of you in queue at lights.

    2. If likely a bit faster than you, wait behind them in primary position.

    It's the kind of move that winds people up. Undertaking is for selfish retards.

  • Irritating, maybe. But not exactly worth making a film of. IMO.

  • ...and as someone else pointed out, he's practically riding in the gutter (and riding on paint is not a good habit to get into), and his line is shit - he veers into the left turning as he passes it, which is stupid too.

    @ Skully - I expect the camera was just running. You make it sound like Mr Livestrong Moped Racer had seen this happen a few times, and then camped out with his kit specifically to capture the transgression.

    I dunno, maybe he did; but you shouldn't begrudge the man a hobby.

    Fcuk me, you're not in The ICF!

    That's how I feel about Jurassic park.

    That's how I felt about Hittler.

  • That's how I felt about Hittler.

    I call Goodwin's law!!

  • List of shit cyclists:

    1. sumo
    2. spybot
    3. lynx
    4. texas

    i maintain my right to have complete disregard for anyone/anything (unless bigger than me). i am a shit cyclist too

  • jut realised that i missed two pages of this thread. seems i'm also shit at the internet as well.

  • bikeradar has 1000+ pages of commuter racing stories so you'll have your work cut out...

    and..? there's nothing wrong with overtaking someone when it's safe to do so is there?

    that's the ethos of that thread, it's not about rlj'ing pavement riding or other douchery

  • I've thought about printing up Cycle Training cards and handing them out to offenders on my commute.

    But previous experience tells me people don't like to be TOLD.

  • nail gun works better from a distance.

  • Hypnosis, you can then charge for this.

    Hmmm the guy put moody 'filmic' suspenseful music under the film. Did you have sound 'ON' when you watched the film? This may explain your indifference and my ire not matching up. Or that you're a saddo too.

  • If you combine the cards with a staple gun to the face, it's not so much "telling" as "letting them know gently" that their riding could do with improvement.

    i like this idea

    No sound here.

    Kill the hobbyist. Drown him in weak lemon drink.

  • If the hobby is perceived to be sanctimonious, then it will invite comment.

    I like watching stupid cyclists though
