If you go back a couple of years on this blog you will find a post with the title "Cyclists are mad." It should of course been "Some cyclists are mad." sorry about that if you are a sane cyclist. It told about a cyclist I got stuck behind coming out of Brixham. Now I have no real problem getting stuck behind a cyclist on a narrow road, it happens rarely and in a bad week I am held up for at most only half a minute before the opportunity arises to over take. You can spend 5 minutes to two days stuck behind a grockel towing a caravan so cyclist are not a major problem. The one two years ago was a problem as when I finally got past him he called my a rude name and indicated with a hand gesture that he had just had the worse two minutes of his life. Then I stopped at a red light and what did our friend do, up on the pavement and in front of me so when the lights changed I was stuck behind him again. When I got past him he again suggested that my parents weren't married to each other and with a slightly different hand gesture indicated the worse one minute of his life had just occurred. Next lights were also on red and again up on pavement and in front of me. I just stopped at the next stop and counted to a hundred slowly and never saw him again.
Today's cyclist was going into Brixham and was travelling at 20 mph (down hill ) I just got 25 feet behind him and whistled a happy tune. I was in no rush and even if I had been the were too many cars coming the other way and the road wasn't wide enough to pass him. Not a problem. Like I said in a bad week I might spend a minute behind a cyclist out of 41 hours driving, so who cares. This cyclist did because instead of just carrying on he suddenly stopped without warning. Now I can not get past him when he is moving but he is just as wide stationary so i still can not get past so I had to stop, also suddenly. If you were behind me, a 12A, at about 18:27 going into Brixham round Strawberry Bends and you had to brake hard, sorry but not my fault.
So, if you are a cyclist and a bus comes behind you and can not pass just keep going. The bus driver will wait until it is safe and pass you. (I hope).
