Cyclists. Are they their own breed?
Recently decided to get an e-bike and use it to work. My impression of certain types of cyclists before I became one myself on a daily basis was that some of them are doing this is with their life on the line. I usually refer to them as wannabe Tour de France cyclists as they take the ride itself as a work out and have to go as fast as possible.
Initial impression after using a bike regularly for 2 weeks is just the same. It took 3 days before I saw the first cyclist on the side of the road, having crashed into a vehicle. Others had already stopped to help him as well as the driver of the vehicle itself so I simply went on my way. The place it happened it requires no effort to break the speed limit for cars on a bike. All experience I have so far is that every damn cyclist does this, with WTdF riders going fastest of them all.
A few days later another WTdF yells at me after nearly crashing into me. I was nearly standing still as I had just come around a corner with little visibility. Again in a place where the speed limit is only for vehicles and cycling on a smaller road with worse quality than the one for vehicles is the perfect place to break it. Why on earth do you have to go so fast in places not meant for high speed? It's like they are playing russian roulette.
Anything that makes your blood boil? Let the anger flow through your fingertips, onto the keyboard and tell us.
