Nothing like a good STW moral outrage thread to rumble on for pages and pages. It's compulsive reading actually.
Had an incident last week commuting out of London. Some bloke was wobbling down the road on a BSO, pootling at fairly sedate pace. Myself and several other riders passed him, only to be forced to stop at a red traffic light 300 yards further along.
Anyway, said chap pootled up to the light, mounted the pavement and cycled across the road on a green pelican crossing light, oblivious to the pedestrians forced out of his way before plopping back onto the road again, in doing so he ensured that we had to overtake him again just as the road narrowed to one lane 100 yards further on.
The lights went green and I quickly caught up with the wobbly fellow, who in turn had decided that he was going to nip past an even slower moving, even more wobbly middle aged bloke in front. I should have been patient, but the moral indignation about being made to overtake this chump for a second time made me scream "Passing, on your right!" when I was about five feet from his lughole.
Poor chap nearly jumped out of his skin.
I feel a little guilty about that, but slow moving RLJers who necessitate a second overtake irk me something rotten
