Why do you always moan?
My other half said to me today after getting back home "If you like cycling so much, why do you always moan when you get back home?"
After thinking about it for a while, I thought to myself, I have never moaned about cycling come wind, rain, sunshine or whatever. Then why would I? What I do moan about is:
The driver that insists on overtaking only to pull in or turn in front of you, or the driver that can see you approaching and still pulls out.
The state of the majority of roads around the area, potholes, cracks in the road (normally travelling in the same direction as you are going) and debris etc.
Using shared paths where pedestrians do whatever they feel like doing!
Dog owners letting their dogs run wherever they want, normally in front of you so that you need to come to a complete standstill so you don't run into the thing. Or on extendable leads, from one side of the path to the other.
Other cyclists approaching 2 or 3 abreast and expect you to move out of their way.
Other cyclist riding 2 or 3 abreast and won't pull in to let anyone past.
The fact that I can't speed along shared paths at 45mph with carbon fibre underpants on...
Other cyclists that don't have the decency to acknowledge your greeting, now that really winds me up.
I'm sure that there are plenty of other things to add to the list but this is just for starters!
