The last few weeks I've been earning a few quid helping out our local recycling team, and on a couple of occasions this has meant riding out to the right set of streets in the little electric buggy they use. She's very sweet, easier on the operative than the pedal trike when loaded, but she ain't fast - top speed about 7 mph. The driver tends not to drive right in the gutter - I assume for all the reasons we don't, and especially not if there's a cycle lane, because after all, it's not a cycle, even if it's slow. I was amazed at one point though, when a couple of cyclists undertook us where there was no cycle lane. Not that they were faster, I know Beryl (that's her name for some reason) is slow, but that they came through the gap on the left, while we were moving. I feel sure I'd overtake on the right... Unless perhaps there was a cycle lane, but even then... I know the drivers and know they wouldn't be likely to swerve in suddenly, but even knowing that, undertaking a moving vehicle like that? Would anyone do that? Mind you, it's fun when you've got an impatient car breathing down your neck, because you're nicely enclosed in a metal box and can whistle nonchalently and pretend you haven't seen them.
