    What do you believe is a suitable response to that?

    derisive laughter.

    How about ‘Nobody cares!’ or ‘you are’

    I would intentionally block the cyclist if they were rude. Who the hell cares about strava?

    Was his name Dennis?

    We’ve discussed this. Dennis is lost on Snowdon.

    Really? That’s pretty **** rude if you ask me.
    I’d tell him to do one personally.
    There’s been times when I’ve been pushing myself trying to beat my Strava time, but im not going to start verbally shoving people out of the way.
    Get bent!
    Alternatively, find out their Strava name and destroy their time to get a KOM. (This only works if you are faster than pushy ****)

    “Well done”.

    Said in a very condescending tone.

    Personally I would not move out of the way just out of badness. If they asked politely I would pull over at the next opportunity.

    I’ve caught people before while recording my ride but it happens and it’s not an issue, I don’t usually ask them to move either I just ride behind at their pace, most folk are polite enough to pull over when they feel safe to do so, and that is just fine.

    Don’t blame Strava for idiots behaviour either, an idiot on the trail will be an idiot with or without it and they were probably a knob well before Strava was about. Plenty of folk record their ride without feeling like they have to race every ride.

    Don’t need to find out their Strava name. Just find the new KoM, copy the GPX, stick it thru digital EPO and repost it under another name 😉

    I’d slow down, getting ready to pull over at a safe point, since i’m not Gee or Greg. The pushier or ruder the guy behind, the slower I’ll ride. Strava or not.

    “Personally I find that unbelievably rude, to expect some-one to get get out of the way, because your riding faster than them. This is a forest track, not a racetrack”

    Really ?

    We don’t all go the same speed although theres ways and means of politely notifying and passing folk ….

    Set up a new segment ‘I’m on a strava run, get out of my way!’
    Use digital EPO to beat his time 😀

    “Good god man, why did you not say so sooner”.
    Then immediately veer off said singletrack at full speed launching yourself into a large thorny thicket.

    For heavens sake he is on a starva run.

    Seriously if anyone catches me up, i am happy to let them past at the earliest safe oppurtunity, its nay bother to me.

    Tell him the correct approach is to just shout “STRAAAAVVVVVAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!”. Don’t slow down. Don’t wait for a response. Make the pass or die trying.

    As long as it’s safe, let them past but I wouldn’t pull off the trail or stop just to make life easier for them

    Benslow, I’m more than willing to allow anyone riding faster than me to pass, when it is safe to do so. Being expect to ‘get out the way’ is a different animal. The track in question, is narrow and on the slope of a valley, with no easy pass places.

    Since I’m likely to be riding with kids in front I’d tell them they can’t overtake as there is a nervous rider in front of me and they can wait until the end of the section.

    I’d also slow down.

    If I’m on my own, they won’t be overtaking anyway 😉

    why not just move out the way and let him get on with it?
    I might even shout “go on son”.

    drop a mahoosive fart in his face

    Calling bullshit on this, be honest it never happened. If it did you should be ashamed for riding so slowly anyway you mincey ****.

    I’d pull over, strava or not. I seem to be in the minority, but I find it unbelievably inconsiderate of slower riders not pulling over. Admittedly, I’m not fast enough for me to catch people often!
