Yes. But you can't see it beneath his big feathered headdress.

The trouble with this thread is too many chiefs, not enough indians.

I saw the prop disc, and although I knew it was higher than my head, it didn't look like it.  Everyone else on the runway dropped swearing also.  Bush runway.

I have the impression, perhaps wrongly, that this sort of lack of awareness is all too common amongst cyclists who believe hearing is essential:

p.s. I should add that I'm not aiming that comment at anyone on here, it was purely general.  We all have faults in our riding, but I wouldn't expect any of us to have as poor observation as that fellow displayed in that clip (IMO).

Must admit the microphone on my VIO sounds a bit dodgy at the moment.  Maybe it's damaged?  I have a friend who uses a separate Olympus stereo dictaphone for better sound quality, it's pretty amazing.

Must confess I thought he was going to ride into the back of the car.

(PS, if you look, the car start signalling only after the cyclist has started to undertake.  Still a brainless move though.)

That was quite a close approach by you Wendy (about the width of the 'U' in the "BUS" road marking). Not to mention boxing him in at the point when the lane becomes a left filter. No wonder he was surprised.

Still, I'm sure most of London can sleep soundly knowing that there are brave citizens out there dispensing wisdom and advice to all those who need it.

I just looked on the original, the car was indicating some time before he got to it, perhaps it's not as visible on the youtube version?

Why the unpleasantness?  That perception is all in your mind and not IRL, I'm sorry to say.  Do you jump red lights, and is that why you don't like my calling him on it?

There's no boxing in as I held back enough that he could go where he wanted to - my front wheel never overlapped his rear.  He was only surprised because he didn't look behind him and had assumed there was nobody behind him.  Don't blame me for that failure.

Really?



The point I was trying to make was that it can be illuminating to be on the receiving end of someone else's judgments about one's behaviour once in a while.

It's also illuminating how camera angles don't always show well just how close, or not, things are.  Knowing my camera, I don't think there was overlap, and I feel I left plenty of space to the side. I recall purposefully holding back as I didn't feel very trusting of his riding.

Again, why the nastiness?  You could easily have told me the above without any of the axe-to-grind.
