    Maybe, but there are hundreds of corners for any ride we get to do from Welly. I don't mind missing the odd one. Esp if I have Lisa on the back.

    It's an offence to go faster than 100kph too. Eat a dick.

    Well, you can cross a solid yellow line on your right if turning right or overtaking a bunch of cyclists, you can cross a solid white line on your right to enter a flush median or right turn bay and I'm pretty sure you can cross a solid white line on your left when turning in to a driveway. Apart from that you are bang on.

    Nah, if she's riding a muppet then we'll have to look out for smurfs. The tooth fairy will be doing speed control and the easter bunny will be on roadworks duty. Please try and keep up, we're practising for a group ride
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...

    this daug says

    Can’t be a muppet rider, you can talk sense to a muppet.

    muppets are entertaining as well, it’s time to light the lights......

    eek

    Alright I've kept quite until now out of embarassment but I'll come clean - it was me. My only defence is that I was looking for somewhere to pull over and stop to let you pass safely but there was some muppet behind me that was all over the road and I couldn't work out where he was going so I closed my eyes and hoped for the best. It seems to have worked, we're both still here. Win win.
    If it rains on your parade, use the umbrella of eternal optimism

    Coz she usually goes everywhere without her head on....
    Either that or she carries it up her arse.
    Opinions are like arseholes: Everybody has got one, but that doesn't mean you got to air it in public all the time....

    Because on a bike far left is a dumb spot. Keeping just left of the centre line allows you to see right down the road although the safer spot is in the righthand wheel track.

    On the left you can't see squat if there are vehicles in front of you. Sure ride there if you're in a group and riding staggered but the first rider should be the one with all the visibility because he's setting the pace.

    It seems to me the original poster may not have been riding staggered and may also be the sort of person who passes on blind corners which is the dumbest idea in all of humanity.
