    He's just drafting.. Instead of breaking sharply (endangering you both) Why don't you a) just ignore him, or b) up your pace and drop him in the pain cave..

    Just saying

    Why should I have to go at any pace other than what I am comfortable with? Ignore him when he crashes into me as I manoeuvre, ignore him when he is blocking my view of traffic every time I look behind - no.

    People who ride dangerously need to be told so, for everyone's future safety.

    Dear Man on the blue On One - Embankment - Horseguards - Whitehall, 8.45 Monday 22nd,

    I know you must be on here, because if you insist on riding 3 feet from my back wheel for more than a mile and then try to make small talk 'gotta love taxis', I know you must be truly dying for a spot on this thread. I was braking sharply not just for that taxi but to get you off my back wheel.

    I was trying to tell you that you shouldn't tailgate people. The correct answer to this is not 'yeeeaaah'.

    I was then trying to clarify that you are fucking dangerous, and to piss off, did you hear that, I wonder? I'm curious whether you know how dangerous you are or whether it doesn't matter as long as you get to talk to other cyclists that are trying to get away from you. I watched you do it to some other people too.

    Just in case you were wondering.

    Fucking weapon.

    (Yeah so it's been 8 months, forum... hai!)

    Someone riding what looked like Mark Horatio's old purple low pro this morning. Shoreditch High St/Bishopsgate. Um, you look like you need a bit of practice maybe? I'm sure there's mitigating circumstances though.

    1. Jack Straw in my car park.

    2. I'm not sure if these are related - but some seeminlgy off-duty courier (ie, on a go-slow) on a SS Surly this morning, who I overtook at Sun Street x Aldersgate Street, going west. Then 90 seconds later, a cyclist rather unsuccessfully trying to overtake me on Long Lane (by going slower than me, it would seem) and crashing smack bang into the back of a white van. Fucking funny shit, if you're going to ride like that! I have no idea if it was the same guy, but whoever it was, you maybe don't want to ride a bike for a living?

    Jack Straw makes me feel important.
    Other cyclists make me laugh/sometimes endanger my life.
    Huh.

    This is kind of random, but I found this distro off the back of www.collective-zine.co.uk, figured it'd be of interest to some (I am way too out of date to know what's up with these bands) http://sncl.collective-zine.co.uk/index.­php. I've yet to find a reasonably good UK distro for this kind of stuff since Assembly Line and Rhythm Thief.

    My chain was so slack it fell off and scared me silly, especially when it got jammed between my wheel and frame so I was skidding down Smithfield Street totally out of control. Or more out of control than usual, at least.

    Also, I deliberately smashed a pint glass in the sink last night. So satisfying.

    www.fillthathole.org.uk is run by the CTC - has a track record of success too, which is more than you can say for TfL.

    My friend said 'for £20 I expect to see Eric Allen rise from the grave'. Enough with the reunions already.
