    This morning on NMW eastbound, I’m following someone at what I feel is a reasonable distance (about two bikes’ length) when somebody else overtakes me without any warning and inserts themselves between me and the cyclist in front, proceeding to wheelsuck them all the way to the MMW junction.

    Me on the towpath westbound just past the speedbumps on approach to Harrison Park at home time (about 5:40). I decided it was the best time to faff about with my front light and ended up almost colliding with a cyclist going in the opposite direction. Sorry if it was you.

    On the towpath last night by a cyclist who thought that the really dark section east of Harrison Park just as I was negotiating the speed bumps while trying to work out how many unlit and unreflective shadowy pedestrians were ahead of me was an ideal place to overtake without any warning.

    Seriously irritated by a couple of selfish tight-wearers this morning heading east on the tow path who seemed to think that other cyclists slowing down to give pedestrians space is a license to barge through. Do. Not. Do. That.

    Apparently the offenders are not just the typical ‘white van man’ or boy racers but bus drivers, taxi drivers, and emergency services, including the police themselves.

    Muppet launching themselves at a pedestrian who was still crossing the South Bridge led crossing the instant the lights turned to flashing amber. Grr. They also had an extremely blinding flashing red rear light.

    Another ignore-the-lights Leith Street user exiting the chicane northbound last night and then subsequently insistently tinging the pedestrians crossing on their green light.
