I know this has been discussed at length here at BF but wanted to vent after this mornings commute. Since I have nobody to talk "shop" with here at work (I'm pretty much the only bike commuter), I'll rant here to my BF buddies
As I was coming into work this morning I was going at a pace of about 14-15mph and catching up with a hybrid cyclist with no helmet, nobbie tires, and tennis shoes. So I passed him at this pace and we hit a light at a major intersection with tons of traffic. As the light that runs perpendicular to ours turns yellow, he sprints out from behind me on the right. This annoyed the $hit out of me b/c now I'll have to pass him again but this time I'll have to fight with traffic to get around him. So, I pass him again and he does the exact same thing at the next light... WTF??? The next time I passed him I wasn't so polite. I'm struggling to comprehend why people do that, it just puts us both in more danger when I pass him again and we have a line of cars going 30mph only inches to the left of us.
