    Now I have your attention, I was on my way to the chippy on my bike. Traffic was chock-a-block, I was doing around 20mph approaching a pinch point, the car just in front of me slows right down to allow me to pass safely, he did this again at another pinch point just up the road and as I accelerated I gave him a thumbs up. And finally, on the last bit of main road to turn right to go home a lady driver flashes me to allow me to turn.

    I do have my faith in the human race partially restored.

    Good lord.
    I had a good day today too: several (OK, two) motorists slowed down to let me through (I did have priority, but that doesn't usually matter). Of course I waved and smiled, like a good Cycling Ambassador

    See, they ain't all bad :smile:

    Had a few myself lately. One even slowed right down to allow me out of a side road, slowing all the drivers behind her, on the approach to a RAB where it was obvious I would be in the way.
