More Random Irritations


Ally Ross strikes again. Maybe I should make Fridays List Day, or Annoyances Day...

There are a lot of cyclists on the road at the moment. We are always reading (thanks Ken) that the numbers are going up year by year.

Two things.



People who ride with the saddle in too low a position. Can't they see it? I can. The knees up around the chest every time they turn the pedals. It hurts me just to look at it.









People who ride in too low a gear. For some reason I become infuriated when I see people riding along the flat on the lowest register imaginable. I could forgive them if they were doddery or infirm, but invariably they appear young and fit. Why do they do this? What do they do when confronted with a real hill?

Well I agree with those totally and would like to add another minor irritation, those cyclists who seems to believe that swigging a can of extra strength beer and puffing on a Senior Service whilst on their bike, is a cool thing to do. And that's at 7am!!!
