There is a road on my current vehicular commute that is also regularly frequented by riders of four legged beasts of unreliable character.

This evening I rounded one bend and spied ahead two of said beasts and riders. Now I know the road, I therefore know I cannot catch and pass said beasts before I reach a blind left hand bend, with a right turn on it. I also know the right turn is common practise for these beasts as it leads to the bridleways rather than the road through the hamlet. Therefore it was an easy decision not to accelerate after the speed bumps and just wait for the beasts to meander to the junction and turn off of my route.

Hopefully somewhere on a forum frequented by those strange people who make beasts rather than machines carry them there is a similar post about a considerate driver.  :smug:

Kudos to the chap on the path round the back of the Banbury Reservoir the evening for his cheery ”thank you” as he passed this keeping-well-to-the-left Pedestrian Unit.

Sent a thank you message to the van driver who parked and waited until I had time to take his details as witness after my pal Ken got knocked off by a car pulling out. Fortunately Ken's OK, just a slight sore knee and the bike needs some bar tape. I spent a bit of time taking pictures and informing the driver that Ken did not just 'fall off' but was pushed!
