Phones on Bikes

I really want to post this on my clubs Facebook page, but I know that I'll get lambasted as over reacting and being a killjoy. So I'm putting it here in the hope that a discussion can take place with me remaining anonymous.

Can you please put your phone's away whilst riding your bike?

I keep seeing videos and stills of every club ride nowadays, why do you think it's okay to whip out your phone and start taking images of the group riding? If I see someone in a car doing it, I'm filled with righteous anger, yet it seems it's fine to wobble along next to me holding your phone up, turn around to film the rider behind you or film the stats on your Garmin.

It's not safe, it looks bad to other road users and the resulting images are not worth the effort. If you want footage of your ride, buy a GoPro.

If you're new please join in and if you have questions pop them below and the forum regulars will answer as best we can.
