nearly spoiled my club run today. i was nearly home and coming down a short rise and there was a bloke on a mtb who was considerably slower than me. just as i overtook him (i'd looked over shoulder and moved out prior to the overtake) some idiot in a p-reg rover decided to overtake me (and the other chap) rather too close, and then had the temerity to give the 'self-gratification artist' hand gesture once he'd passed ;)

i oddly has the satisfaction of knowing that my steed would fetch more on ebay than his…

It's a regular occurence around these parts. There is a certain breed of box pilot who is apparently conditioned to make such a signal whenever something occurs to jog his usually torpid brain cell into activity. The only thing to do is give a moment's pity to such a retarded creature and carry on enjoying your ride.

Or note his number and report the incident (after having completed your enjoyable ride).

I've started to ignore everyone. I'll occasionally mutter a rude word under my breath otherwise I don't react. Friday I had a car deliberately pass me close and squirt their washers at me. I pretended nothing happened so they didn't get any "fun" from it. Likewise if boy racers toot at me or make a rude comment I carry on cycling and pretend they weren't there. Works for me.

Whilst waiting for everyone to turn up to the ride this morning we had someone yell at us "GET A CAR" as he drove past in a Nova, I chuckled at the irony of it as he went off sounding like a wet fart

Some of the lads at work used to joke "who do you think you are, Lance f***ing Armstrong?" I'd reply along the lines "Why, are you Mika Hakkinen then?" :tongue:

Half these halfwits couldnt walk uphill, let alone ride a bike under their own steam. They know naff all about being a "real man". ;)
