Default Cage drive and filtering

Been noticing more and more lately alot of our fellow road users are trying to stop us progressing in traffic. Maybe just an off day but lately had them move over so I can't filter more or driving into the box for cyclists which I pop into when see you. I was filtering and planned to go into empty cycle spot and a cager went forward into it when saw me coming up

I've noticed a bit of this alright, especially in Dublin. With the way traffic is here, cage drivers can be annoyed by people on bikes who are able to make more progress than they can.

It's petty but there's a certain 'logic' attributable to it.

So you are upset cos they don't like the fact that you are going to get to your destination in half the time, and when you get there you will be met by a stunning biker chick who will do unspeakable things to you, until you go home again in half the time.... It's a jungle out there my friend, get steel toecaps on your boots and use them so.....

Oh yeah, and get over yourself.

I honestly thought I was the only one seeing this. Been flashed and blocked many times recently, flashing seems to have gotten more popular when you go into the other side even though you are miles away and can go back into your own lane in time, piss me right off when they do that so I just give them the middle finger. I would assume that it's mainly jealousy as they have to sit in congestions with the rest of the herd.

I'm just saying there's no point in giving out about it here.
It's always been like that, it's the way of things.

It would not bother me just general observation with our 4 wheel brother and sisters. When I am out on my bike its to unwind and tip along I was just wondering was it just me or other lads notice that peeps ain't happy we filter more

Was not suppose to come across as a mini rant. A rant for me is those f#uc#ing cagers blocking me in God given right to filter

Where do you suggest he gives out about it?
It's a genuine moan and this is a bike discussion group.

Can't filter on the chop. Bars are too wide. So I piss the cagers off by riding half as fast and watching the knickers hit the floor everywhere I go. Of course I stall the bleeding thing in traffic a bit and that gets their blood up even more. And when it won't kick start cos it's flooded or I run out of petrol or the crowd of squealing girlies prevents satisfactory progressing in traffic, well that just ends their day altogether. So get a chop and worry less about what cagers think of you and more about how you are going to explain the smell of minge to your missus...

And then stop worrying.

A mate of mine in Sydney, Oz says the cagers on the harbour bridge open their doors to stop bikers filtering in standstill traffic. Seems like cagers here are going that way

Use them with caution, the resultant tankslappers are lethal if ya are caught unprepared.

Never practised yoga so am unlikely to try the other advise any time soon.

Some of it is malicious because they are just mean spirited bastards but I really believe a lot of the time is when they genuinely dont see you. Often see cages weaving in their lane and I can spot the sign of a bookfaceing/texting driver a mile off.
They are constantly correcting their line within the lane. Think its the lot of the biker today. You just have to be twice as vigilant at all times.

With all due respect it hasn't always been this bad (Dublin anyway). Iv'e driven bikes in and around Dublin for years both for pleasure and as a courier and only in the last say 18 months to 2 years have car drivers actively attempted to make life hard for me and yes knock me off my bike.
