This kind of overtake pisses me off so much...there are solid white lines down the middle of the the road that aren't meant to be crossed, because it's a stupid idea to overtake on the bend, yet the driver thinks that because it's a cyclist in front it's imperative to make the overtake as soon as possible regardless of the road markings. When the inevitable happens and they encounter a car coming the other way, they think fuck it let's squeeze the cyclist rather than abort the overtake.
It’s a very stupid and dangerous place to perform an overtake, especially in a bus. Blind bend, blind crest, solid white line, narrow bridge etc .
The worst part is there is a crossing that is usually red just after the bend and the buses always stop at the train station just after the crossing. Having to pull across the cycle lane.
