I know this is about riding in groups but, I was out on my trike on Saturday, which is sort of like riding two abreast.
I take back all I said in a previous post about getting more room when on a trike.
I was a narrow road, so I had to ride primary most of my route.
I only got more room, ie passing me completely in the other lane, when there was nothing coming the other way, or yes they would go completely in the other lane, whilst there was a vehicle oncoming, including a cyclist oncoming. at one point
They were cutting in too close, trying to overtake me when I was overtaking parked cars, tailgating 3ft from my back wheel, horn sounding, gesticulating. I had a Land Rover pulling a large trailer, forgetting he was towing, had to brake hard to avoid getting wiped out.
I even had a motorcyclist pointing to the kerb, You would think you would get a bit more empathy from motorcyclists.
I think I had it all in one 17 mile ride.
Easter Saturday madness in the upper Swansea Valley.
