Bludy large groups of cyclists
I WILL emphasise the phrase "Bludy large groups of cyclists" as no doubt there are cyclists on the forum
Not a problem with 1 or 2 cyclists on the road but when theres between 10 and 20 together its horrible.
basically this last week there has been loads of groups with this amount of people going along my road and its a nasty road with blind double bends so i have to overtake the lot somehow. yes rather easy if i squeeze into the gaps.
there cycling together in 3's like | | | across the road using the one side "tapping horn to make them aware in behind" they didnt move into single file.
I get the right gear to get the power to go round a few as i can see its clear so I correctly check around me to see nothing is going past me I indicate pull onto other side of the road get past some, go to go past some and some old fart in an old ford fiesta comes tearing down the road towards me he hits the brakes i hit the brakes, squeeze a few cyclists out the way after checking mirrors the fiesta driver tried having ago at me for overtaking, I just shrugged my shoulders and said to him what can I do.
what could have I done differently from you more experienced drivers "im only 20"
