BMW Bully on Bracken Single Track National Cycle Route 1

January 15th, 2018

Whilst most drivers are considerate to cyclists on rural roads, last Sunday we encountered a particularly ignorant and dangerous driver speeding towards the 3 leading riders with lights flashing. The drivers knowledge of the highway code rules appeared to be none existent during this incident of uncontrollable road rage.

The police have acted upon data from the on bike video in similar cases of dangerous driving.

Rule 110 – Do not use headlights to intimidate other road users.
Rule 154 – Country road use
Rule 155 – Use of single track roads with passing places
Rule 167 – Passing Cyclists

More Thursday Festive Fun

December 21st, 2017

Today’s Thursday Ride to Goodmanham Arms saw 8 riders set off from Skidby, which was sitting above a fog bank over Hull with only the highest buildings poking through – new view to me. JD was collected at Etton and a Recovering Dudley and Pete K motored out to join us for lunch in the pub museum room. The rain set in on the return as we were leaving Cherry B. Another day for a post ride bike wash!
