My cycling to work is about saving money and losing inches from my waist. It is a way of getting to work, it is not a race!
It is not a race!
I don't like being overtaken, it is something that happens and I have generally learned to accept it. As far as I am concerned there are three groups of cyclists:
1. Those who I am fairly happy to be overtaken by, these include:
Anyone who has a bicycle that has carbon-fibre bits.
Anyone who has those clip on shoe/peddle things.
Anyone that has cycling legs
Anyone who can do that balancing thing at traffic lights
2. Those who I am not really happy to be overtaken by but I put up with, these include:
Anyone riding a bike that has a basket on it.
Anyone wearing a suit of skirt.
Anyone whose bike is clearly older than me.
Anyone who is clearly fatter than me.
Anyone who looks more than twice my age.
3. Those who I will not let overtake me.
Anyone riding one handed while chatting on a mobile phone!!!!!!!!! (it almost happened).
