It's a genuine moan and this is a bike discussion group.

I hear enough moaning from my kids and there is a difference between that and discussion.

And to the OP, I am with you if you want to rant, far preferable to mild disapproval.

It's us or them, don't let the bastards grind you down

Havenít seen that happen once in nearly four years here, if anything cagers seem to move aside if they see a bike in the mirror. Unlike Eire thereís billboards everywhere down here telling cagers to look for bikes in blind spots and be aware of bikes filtering.

Haven't noticed a difference in the past couple of years and I commute Bray to Dublin five days a week year round. They're still dozy gits and nothing has changed about that.

Your kids are moaning about cagers too??. You should have said. Sure no wonder you're fed up of hearing about it.

It's a jungle out there my friend, get steel toecaps on your boots and use them so.....

Oh yeah, and get over yourself.
..is it possible cagers are trying to make space for cyclists inside on the left leaving less of a gap on the right for you to filter...?

Down in Cork cage drivers are, for the most parts, decent and would make a little bit more room. The ones that don't is because they're just not paying any attention and serving all over the shop...

But can't remember any examples of someone actively blocking my way...


Something to bear in mind is that, while it's nice to have a little bit more room, they don't have to do it if they don't feel like it. So don't be that biker that plows his way, revs engine and risk it just to prove a non-existent point.

Decency works both ways.

I'm on the N11 twice a day and don't really notice this much. The R6 fits everywhere pretty handy when you fold the mirrors in though

I'm new to riding but some weeks are worse than others. Last week I had three people try to take off or edge forward while I'm in front of themnut bot centred.

Funny, I do the N11 every day, in and out, and haven't had this happen at all, but I'd definitely agree that the bookfacers are on the increase, the lack of attention being paid is scary...and when a bike exhaust passes their window at ear level....!

I have been commuting over 10 years at this stage and have seen it all - but only yesterday evening on M50 I saw someone (a small white van yoke) trying to block a bike filtering. The bike was a chopper of sorts, so he did need extra clearance to get thru, but this retard was toying with the biker giving him space and then moving in etc. Eventually he stopped, may be he saw me and another bike behind me lining up behind the chopper.

I have had one or two brake test on me on the M1, probably annoyed with me riding too close (waiting for them to pull over), and yes, I agree that there's been an increase in that general intolerance on the roads lately, especially this winter season. Although, even with all that, vast majority of cagers either don't care about bikes filtering, or a good percentage actively moves over to make more room for bikes to filter by. There's plenty of good people out there too.

I always try and acknowledge the cagers who have made an effort to move over. I sometimes acknowledge the other fuckwits with a kick as I go passed!
