A little etiquette please

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

A little etiquette please

Are they dillweeds or courteous to you in general?

Do you find a higher rate of incidents online where roadies are more verbally abusive than in public like I do?

Well this thread is going well. Might as well end it while it's on a positive note.
I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.
