but on the road bike I feel like a 10,000 point target, anyone else find that?
Not so much on a bike, but definitely on my horse.
I get a lot of cars following me, that don't seem able to overtake, even when it is safe to. I can't work out if they are just enjoying watching me work myself to death on a bike, or are just bl**dy awful drivers.
As for people blowing their horns, my son had an interesting incident yesterday. After riding about 80k with a dozen other riders, without incident, my son and the ride organiser were making their way back towards home when an old guy in a big Jag did the same thing as the guy in the video, although he did pass in the end, giving my son and his friend a lot of verbal.
I have to say, I do wonder what would happen if, when this sort of thing takes place, my son and I were to stop and then approach the driver, after all, we are both over 6 foot tall, he's 25 and as fit as you like, I'm...erm, older, less fit but a little more controlled in my approach to people. My thought is, that a driver in this situation would sh*t themselves, as I really think they don't see cyclists as people, merely slow objects that are in their way.
