..for some reason more people want to try to touch the end of my handlbars as they pass. This morning I had 4 taxis, several cars and a couple of vans pass within eyebrow-plucking distance of me. I also had a biker become a driver for a few seconds. Approaching a red light with a big queue in the inside lane, I checked behind and pulled into the right lane. A few seconds later a biker honks at me, rides past shouting, and then has to stop 50m up the road because his panniers won'#t let him filter. As I freewheeled past him I asked if it was worth it, and he shouted again, in a "Homer Simpson chewing a bag of bees" kind of way. Mind you, I also had some very courteous drivers, including a Jag driver who passed me very nicely twice.
