    When you see another cyclist, do you try and catch up to him or her?

    I’ve noticed quite a few guys be quite a bit behind me and then a short time later pass me quickly. From my observations, they have always been younger guys. Has anyone else experienced this situation?

    Why did the cyclist cross the road ?

    It's half day Friday so time to spend almost 4 hours playing in the woods. Today it was time to go beyond The Darkside and do a lot of climbing. Much to my surprise the horses have even gone beyond The Darkside. Looks like I just can't get far enough away from them, and will soon be dodging...

    Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist

    Watched this last night on Youtube: I'm not usually bothered by pro-cycling and knew little of this guy other than having heard his name mentioned a few times. I found this a really interesting, well-produced and poignant documentary about his rise and fall in professional cycling; which...

    Single chainring bike for new-ish cyclist

    Over the course of the lockdown my wife has been cycling most days, having previously been a very infrequent cyclist. She has been using a Pinnacle hybrid (Sora groupset) and is quite happy with that. However she is now keen on acquiring a drop bar bike for occasional days out when it's dry...

    Cyclist hit by Range Rover doing blind overtake.

    BBC report. Incident happened on A81 near Balfron in Stirlingshire. Some utter lowlife in a Range Rover overtaking on a blind bend hit a cyclist and didn't bother stopping. Why is it that these clowns never seem to have head on collisions with a fully laden artic coming in the opposite...

    More idiot cyclists than idiot car drivers.

    Did a 40 mile ride today, a recovery ride after an 80 miler yesterday, riding down a narrow country lane, then idiots on bikes riding two abreast come round a blind bend straight into my path, managed to swerve to miss him, Then a while later another one, the next one was the worst an idiot...

    Cyclist Down. RIP

    Very sadly towards the end of my ride yesterday, I saw the Air Ambulance land in a field to attend an accident. I had not long previously noted that the helicopter had been at it's base in Cosford. The narrow lane was blocked completely by a large tractor and trailer. There wasn't anything I...

    Man Shot in Both Legs by Cyclist

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-52617244 BBCNI are running a story today about a fella who was shot in the legs up the road from me. The fact that they have classified the perpetrator as a cyclist seems a little odd to me. If the aggressor jumped out of a car would the victim...

    Things you should never say to a cyclist.

    Prompted by an article I was reading on Google. Here are a couple to start you off: Is all that lycra really necessary? I could buy a car for the price of that. Perhaps you could give some personal examples. Some smart responses might be interesting too.

    Saw a cyclist getting ticketed by the police

    I think the Met at least have been given new instructions to enforce restrictions more strictly. On my usual trip to walk the hound I saw three separate incidents of people pulled over and being given tickets, one of them being a cyclist in full lycra. The caveat of course is that I didn't...

    Ouch - Head on with another cyclist - Black eye

    I have a lovely shiner today. On my commute home from Reading yesterday, I was passing under a bridge on a cycle towpath, I was on the left hand side and another cyclist came hurtling around the corner and smacked into me on my side of the underpass. The other cylist apologised and said sorry...
