Waiv­ing the right

Cycling Weekly - - Letters -

In re­sponse to Chris Den­ley’s let­ter (CW Sept 21) and the many others who con­tinue to write on the mat­ter of ‘fel­low rider ac­knowl­edge­ment’ I would be grate­ful if somebody could show me where in the un­writ­ten rules of bike own­er­ship it states that I have to give a jolly hello or thumbs-up to ev­ery Tom, Dick and Chris who passes me on my ride. Like many other cy­clists I have been rid­ing for decades for the sim­ple joy of be­ing on the road in per­fect soli­tude. I am not ig­no­rant, I’m sim­ply in my own happy world. My ad­vice to Chris et al would be to stop wor­ry­ing about your no­tion of other peo­ple’s manners and sim­ply get on with en­joy­ing your ride.
