We should start a campaign
Paging @Markymark to ask what the current best etiquette is...
Cyclists above appear to be passing on the right. I'd wave, but one finger or two?
Show them your new Iphone ofc
That photo looks like he's giving a Hitler salute.
If you like being waved at you should buy a Smart car.
The correct etiquette, of course, is for both riders to dismount and then perform Baby Shark. It needs to be the full 15 minute extended version. As new riders approach they’ll all stop to join in the chorus. As the song progresses, new and improvised verses can be added. For example, London Shark do do de do de doo where the action is a shark of awesome prowess and wealth. Then perhaps Norhern Shark do do de do de doo when you act out a shark living an empty life of daytime tv and only going out to the off license.
Anyone who doesn’t do this is just a miserable cyclist, I mean we’re all in this together so why wouldn’t you?
I go cycling to enjoy the scenery and get some solitude. I'll not be waving to anyone.
I always shout out Morning now matter what time of day
Pfft, I'd have to ride all of my commute with one hand if I adopted that.
I'm riding no handed, surfing Twitbook with one hand, rolling a fag with the other, what am I supposed to wave with?
Are you wearing bib shorts,you are,well my suggestion is not practical then.
I find most cyclists to be ghastly bores and limit my interaction with them to the barest minimum.
Great to see we have not lost all the miserable sods
I might administer a slight nod of the head, or occasionally, when appropriate, a but that's not the 'hello' gesture!
Enthusiastic waving is the mark of an amateur. A slight nod of the head or a raised finger or, if overtaking, a polite greeting is all that's needed.
Drivers of proper square Land Rovers already know that a laconic raise of one finger off the steering wheel is about the most enthusiastic gesture allowed.
Separate names with a comma.
