Dear Doc

Cycling Weekly - - Last Laugh -

Dear Doc I have a rid­ing mate who in­sists on sit­ting on the front of the group. He will push past peo­ple to get there, pull in, and then just get slower and slower. If you try to over­take him he gets quite shirty about it, and as soon as he can he bus­tles to the front again. Ba­si­cally he ru­ins rides. Have you any sug­ges­tions?

Anon, email

I speak with some author­ity when I sug­gest you club to­gether to get him a skin­suit and a pointy hel­met, for this man is by in­stinct a time tri­al­list. Do as I sug­gest, and he’ll spend the win­ter hap­pily rid­ing 50 miles a day at thresh­old on his own. He’ll never bother you again.
