Too often I see commuters - bikes weighed down with panniers, chains never seen lube since purchase, tatty fluoro vest etc - push past those cyclists waiting patiently for the lights and drop in front....then roll off about as fast as a 90 year old making those behind pass them.
Its just rude and thoughtless - even if you are some proracer it doesnt mean you can simply push in. Being much more up close and personal than hiding inside a cage its most amusing when you share your thoughts with these people as you pass them.
So you are a shoaler - do you mount the footpath to get to that vacant spot in the bike box? My shoaler went around and sat in the intersection. I asked him if he pushed in at the queue at the supermarket as well. He seemed shocked someone had called him on it.WaskerleyWhippet wrote:I 'push to the front' if it involves taking a spot in the almost vacant green bike box at the lights while 10 people queue single file in the gutter.
