    cycling along quite a busy main road earlier. There is a cycle path, which I was semi using. ... It was full of dust, but I was either on the line, or just over it when not in it.

    Anyway, all going fine. I then hear a honk a couple cars back couple. I ignore it, the car behind overtakes...then the next car comes past on the horn.

    I think I make some appropriate hand gesture. I carry on and catch him up at a mini roundabout, where he asks if I know what cycle lanes are for....before he turns off at the next junction, without signalling.

    I ask if he knows what indicators are for, before carrying on

    should have a video, but you'll have to wait for that :sad:

    Ignore them. As annoying as they are, they're not worth the hassle. Me smug in that you're healthier and a better person by not reacting.

    Couple of weeks ago my local authority had roadsweepers out cleaning the roadsides. The cycle lanes were a joy, until the rain and the wind of the past few days washed everything to the side again.
