One of the closest shaves I had in the car was going north on the A49 at Marshbrook - very blind right hander, cyclist coming the other way and a car swings very fast around him on my side of the road. It was so fast I had no time to do anything at all - not brake, swerve, nothing; fortunately he made it in just in front of me. Very scary.
Is it illegal to ride two abreast?
Get off the moral high ground people, it's plain selfish to block a busy road in rush hour and cause congestion, especially when you ask to get past. I don't assume or expect people to get out of my way, I get out of the way for others going faster, it's common sense.
njee20 / prezet - I don't usually approve but I think your missus would be better off on the path.
Just out of interest, if it was just you riding down a bus lane and a bus comes up behind you, unable to overtake due to stop:start traffic in the other lane, do you stop, lift your bike onto the pavement and allow the bus to overtake you?
Yes, I've pulled over a few times, especially on hills, but to be fair there's usually either a bus stop so they stop or a set of lights on my commute so they have a chance to pass then.
What is with everyone riding two abreast? You should be cycling, not talking.
Fair play to you then.
rewski - I don't assume or expect people to get out of my way,unless they are riding two abreast in the bus lane!
