I'd prefer the users of that shared path ride safely rather than the wacky/PB/Strava routine. Yeah, fat chance. Or we get some of the fat juicy bike lanes that the North has, as an on-road alternative to an over-capacity path designed for a pootle.
+1 spot on!Percrime wrote:In this instance from what we are told the only one who did nothing wrong was the ped. Except apparently for being there. The bloke in front failed to anticipate the situation and braked overly hard. OP failed to anticipate the situation, including the possibility of bloke in front braking overly hard in spite of having bloke in front pegged as a beginner and in spite of vast experience. Begging the question of why the hell he was wheel sucking that wheel. Overtaking peleton failed to anticipate the situation which would well seem to include the possibility of bloke in front moving to overtake and shoving one or more of them into the wall. The only person who did what they were supposed to do is the ped. And its him you wanna ban?
