A frosty cycle commute.

A frosty cycle commute – Goscote to Leicester.

I’ve doubled the speed and split it into two parts to fit it on youtube.  (Filmed Wed 16th Jan 2013)

    You ride like an *insult*!!! I think i know who you are, i see you on catherine st. Your camera is on the right side of your helmet.

    You don’t give drivers a chance, during a dark, frosty morning you think it is safe to ride through traffic on both sides of cars by weaving in and out, even on the other side of the road.

    If you don’t give enough of a *crude* about yourself, then fine. But dont put drivers in a position where they could clip you due to you not obeying any road laws or remaining in a position where they can see you.

    Oh, and before you jump on the car vs cyclist bandwagon, i’m a fellow cyclist and am compelled to comment as you are giving the rest of us a bad name.

      That’s nice, Frosty. Thanks.
      I have ridden this route for 2 years.
      I have never had an incident with any vehicle or pedestrian.
      I have never encountered any horns or otherwise that indicate distress.
      I do not ride like an idiot. I see plenty who do.
      I stop behind every red light.
      I stop behind vehicles when there is not room to pass.
      I only pass cars when it is clear and legal to do so.
      When in a queue of traffic, I either continue in the left-hand side or if it’s not free and overtaking is an option I will overtake the stationary/slow traffic. I am cautions and observant and have lights front and rear at all times. Sitting in the fumes of stationary traffic or riding on the pavement is not an option.
      I think you should get your facts straight before you start flinging insults.

    Considerate sensible discussions held elsewhere.
