So why are these cyclists silly?
10 – Cycling with a helmet on incorrectly and not fastened is worse than not wearing a helmet. Either put your lid on properly or not at all.
9 – Cyclist passes too close to another cyclist and then goes through a red light
8 – Undertaking another road user who is undertaking another road user in a tight space is a recipe for disaster. Best off just holding back and passing later on when it is safe and there is space.
7 – Cyclist joins a roundabout into the path of another, forcing the first to brake to avoid a collision
6 – Cyclist goes through a red light whilst pedestrians are trying to cross, forcing them to stop.
5 – I miss judge how the bus is going to take the corner, and get clipped by the stalk of the bus!
4 – Potentially not setting up the turbo correctly can lead to your bike falling out whilst you are on it.
3 – Cyclist squeezes up the inside of a large truck, whilst the traffic isn’t moving and the red light can be seen, it’s best not to filter at this point.
2 – Moving straight around another vehicle when not looking first can put you into conflict, it’s best to look first and then filter.
1 – Cyclist swerves through traffic, cycles on the wrong side of the road and then goes up a side road almost colliding with an oncoming car.
Savvy Cyclist this week is for doing a great shoulder check and indicating clearly before turning.
A stupid cyclist almost collides with me as he attempts to make a right turn across two lanes of traffic. That is an example of how not to turn right!
