I tend to migrate to the right when on a cycle path because I'm usually the fastest cyclist so am overtaking everyone else, to me you overtake on the right. Also I'm normally thinking about getting back onto the road & the road will more often than not be on my right hand side.paddy01 said:Ignoring the attitude for a moment, it is a trend I've noticed then when on cycle paths / off road routes, an increasing number of people migrate to riding on the right rather than left as you would on the road.
You should always give way to people comming down hill. Common sense say they re the ones who will have the greater diffulculty stopping.Sh4rkyBloke said:Also she should have given way to you as you were coming up the hill, IIRC.
Sounds like just another numpty who hasn't got a clue.
Etiquette says you give way to those who are going up hill as they're the ones that will struggle more if they have to stop.lukesdad said:You should always give way to people comming down hill. Common sense say they re the ones who will have the greater diffulculty stopping.
Like this bit you mean?lukesdad said:Get a copy and read it.... You need to !
Evidence is always useful before putting mouth or fingers into gear I find.155
Single-track roads. These are only wide enough for one vehicle. They may have special passing places. If you see a vehicle coming towards you, or the driver behind wants to overtake, pull into a passing place on your left, or wait opposite a passing place on your right. Give way to vehicles coming uphill whenever you can. If necessary, reverse until you reach a passing place to let the other vehicle pass. Slow down when passing pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.
If you give way on the assumption, in the absence of evidence to that effect, that the other vehicle is going to have a mechanical failure, no one would ever go anywhere!lukesdad said:Its got nothing to do with braking distance....As with motor vehciles its about brake failure or, any other component failure for that matter, and you my friend are unsafe if thats the line you take.
I'd suggest you take the time to read it. Here's the on-line version: http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/index.htmlukesdad said:Get a copy and read it.... You need to !
