As to the 5% of total nutters.. they have nada to do with me.
Corners is what its all about. No one is ever rear ending me in a curve again. Even if the flashing lights make their commonwhore look cheap and silly.
Not making any sort of suggestion that you'd ride like this.
But on the Reefton Spur...... more like 20% of riders will overtake in this very disturbing manner IME. As for the hazard of a rear-ender - they were not doing it for any 'safety' reasons, there were no cars anywhere near us. More a case of "have a fang up the road and see how close I can go to the cyclist"
