Stay out of the gut­ter

MCN - - LIFE ON BIKES -

I like the idea of the ‘I ride too’ car sticker (MCN, Oc­to­ber 31). Although I think the cur­rent ‘Think Bike’ sticker is usu­ally a sign that the guy in front on four or more wheels is a mo­tor­cy­clist. But why on earth do these peo­ple sud­denly slow down and start to drive in the gut­ter, some­times even in­di­cat­ing left when they see a bike be­hind? Mak­ing a sud­den un­ex­pected de­cel­er­a­tion and then spray­ing my pre­cious bike and me with all the muck, dirt and grit from the road­side is not re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated. Best ac­tion to take is do noth­ing, carry on as nor­mal. I’ll get past you when I feel it’s safe and sen­si­ble to do so. Steve Palmer, email
