I'm not keen on red light jumpers either.

But don't sit on their back wheel like some sub-standard club racer to "teach them a lesson" you ****wit. Unless you really need the tow up the minor gradient by Owens Park.

That's excellent Dondare - if I see this chap up to his tricks again, I shall put that to him as my opening gambit.

This bloke was an inch (if that) off the wheel of the rider that had irked him, so much so that I assumed they knew each other. Once the drafter rode off, I caught up with the draftee and it turned out that no, she didn't know the drafter, and yes, he was just being a bellend. I shall be having a word if I see him again, I think.

Why would anyone care if someone tailgated them on a bike? If there's contact, it's almost always the person behind who goes down.

That guy was obviously very stupid as well as having a bad attitude, not realising that he was leaving himself incredibly vulnerable to a crash.

The RLJs I tend to see are the annoying ones that then ride at 5mph so not really worth drafting. Never understood it, if you're in that much of a rush to get to work/home pedal faster.

JtM, just draft him for ooh I don't know, about 5 miles, that should really p**s him off. :smile:

RLJ could have been a student, I guess, although out at 7:20am?

Fella doing the intimidation would have been 40s, I guess, certainly grey haired.

What an idiot.

A grown, and apparently mature, man piously stalking a young woman, thus endangering not only his but her safety, so as to teach her a lesson over a comparatively trivial action.

Chances are that this goon is a complete coward in a confrontation (not recommended) with another man, and yet he finds it satisfying to try and intimidate those he understands to be vulnerable. Both qualities are repulsive, and people like him disgust me. :ohmy:
