Raging Bike

Being overtaken by the rider of a Navy Blue Bianchi Pista didn’t cheese me off this morning. I’d past him at a set of lights earlier on the commute into work and he caught back up and passed me as I was slowing for the next set of lights. The thing that annoyed me was the way he made absolutely no effort to stop for the lights that were on red and sailed nonchalantly through them. I ended up stuck at the next two sets of lights which also turned to red just as I reached them.

I haven’t worked out if I’m more annoyed about being overtaken by someone who jumped the lights and that as I didn’t give chase I wasn’t able to catch them up after that or whether it was the fact that because I didn’t, I ended up getting red lighted three times on the way to work. I’d like to adopt the My Name is Earl approach to this and think that karma will even things up in the long run…

  1. Dude, you did the right thing. Next time you see him though… pee in his shoes and If you find him sqwershed at a set of lights just roll on by.
