    Perhaps they were in a hurry to get home and watch Deadenders.

    I reckon they were just in a hurry to skip all the cr@p that lies between birth and the grave. :blush:

    Were they:
    a) wearing hi-viz?
    :evil: wearing helmets?
    c) fitted with mudguards?
    d) riding with a slack chain?
    e) on the phone?

    It's just the same sheer bloody mindedness and ignorancethat we see in any road user that bends the rules to suit themselves.

    This week I've had a van driver and a motorcyclist comment on how impressed they were that I had stopped for red lights.

    I guess as the weather is improving there are a lot of newbie and fair weather cyclists taking to the road so the proportion of those less skilled or road aware plus 'self rightious' riders are on the increase.

    Did you tell them you were equally impressed that they weren't using their mobile phone whilst driving or pulling a wheelie at 140mph ;)?

    As they seemed genuinely pleased to see a cyclist actually following the HC I felt it better not to.

    Then again to say such things, if they were not breaking the law in any way, would have been wrong and just tarring these road users with the same brush, which after all is what RLJ'ers don't realise makes drivers do to cyclists in general.

    What annoys me more is the number of riders I see without any lights. Some people are just stupid.
