  • start calling out bad cyclists

    **Well I'm often 'calling out' bad pedestrians (for example " thats a red light/man see ?!" ) but like an abusive comment from a passing motorist I'm gone in seconds and don't deal with any responses. Cowardly/can't be arsed to stop maybe or just some ingrained comradeship with 'fellow' cyclists has meant that I very rarely call out bad cyclists. **
    Maybe I should but it will always tempered by the experience of alot worse/dangerous road behaviour by motorists.

  • ^bold satement

  • I get really annoyed when grown adults undertake me when I have stopped at lights. I tend to do a big, slow swerve around them and the annoying (inevitable) car that's gone fully into the bicycle box at the lights. WTF? I really hate this shit, makes even a good cyclist feel like getting even further beyond the light just to avoid being run over when the lights change (happened more than once when i was starting out. Rant over...

  • Without question it's something that sadly casts all of us in a bad light

    It's this notion of collective responsibility that I don't get. If someone does something stupid on a bike it's not your responsibility just because you are on a bike as well. I often walk places, and I drive a car as well, when a numpty ped walks infront of you, or a car swerves to close to you are they giving me a bad name? No - the notion is ridiculous. Aside from that I doubt that calling out is likely to make much difference - I got a lecture from someone a few years ago after a move that I admit was not my finest hour. I just thought he was a patronizing twat - which he was.

  • Maybe he was trying to give you help. Are you so proud that you can't take advice?

  • surely your life would be better place if you stopped worrying about everyone else and just rode yer bike

  • Majority of cyclists are unable to understand whats going on around them.

    Don't know what to do to change as tried polite comments tried rude comments stopped bothering. Why should I care its their life.

  • I was hoping this would be a thread naming bad cyclists on the forum.

    Seconded.

  • 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...
