"You **** ****"
I know its a bit petty, but if I'm commuting and someone passes me, I always try and catch them, counts double if they RLJed.
If I can't catch them then I get fitter trying.
If I do catch them there is every possibilty that they think I'm a knob but at least I'm a fast knob 😉Posted 7 years ago
I see it as brightning up a dull commute. I've done it before and I've been passed and beaten likewise before.
Most memorable was when I went to overtake someone, he stepped on the gas and we drag-raced. I beat him to the lights but I was breathing out of my ass and almost seeing double…as he pulled level I turned my cheek away and pretended not to be fussed 😆Posted 7 years agoflebbySubscriber
once overtook a roady on my flatbar roadish bike who was clearly just setting out and warming up (stretching etc..) and then a few yards up the road he came flying past me, i'm guessing just to make a point.
i remember wanting to shout **** funny enough but i'm an adult 😉Posted 7 years agogrievoustimMember
i've had people pass me on a climb on the commute -huffing and puffing a bit, obviously made an effort to chase and pass me. in this situation i have been known to sit on their wheel till they blow, then pass them (obv doing my best to look like i'm not trying)
i'm not very proud of myself when i do this though i have never been called a knobPosted 7 years agocooganMember
Never quite understood the whole racing on a commute. I had one guy come storming after me after I got passed when he got stuck in traffic, he then sat right on my rear wheel. And then failed to notice the red light when I stopped and he couldn't unclip quick enough. Uber noob lying in heap behind me. Silly roadie stopping the traffic as he tried to untangle himself from his bike…Posted 7 years ago
Whats the etiquette with commuting on a bike?
I was pootling along in the rain this morning (no idea how fast I was going as I was day-dreaming) when a lad on a Spesh Langster overtook me, I woke up and dropped him. As I passed him he said 'you **** ****'.
Stop at lights and he passes me and says 'if your going slow you shouldn't then overtake me'….
….someone had his jam taken out of his donut this morning 😆Posted 7 years agooldgitMember
You shouldn't of passed him, instead just catch up and keep pace with him whistling loudly a happy tune whilst he's blowing out his arse trying to up the pace.
Indeed or freewheel loudly 😐 Better still get your lunch out of your back pocket and eat it on the move while he blows wind, also a good time to take calls on your mobile.Posted 7 years agoedhornbySubscriber
1000 plus pages of commuter racing !!!
I can't see what the issue is with having a bit of a duel, as long as it's safe what's the issue ? Langster boy should have put himself in a position where he could make it stick 😀Posted 7 years ago
