other than a taxi driver shouting at me to learn the highway code as he brushed past me one Sunday morning in Exeter years ago,
Sorry to go slightly off topic, but this one REALLY rags me; people who do not know and who break the Highway Code rules, telling me to obey them... and incidentally ALWAYS getting it wrong.
I get this more on horses than on the bike, because 99% of the time I am on my own on my bike, but the shout is usually the same "you should be riding single file". I can never actually figure this one out, as if you are riding (horse or bike) two abreast, then you are effectively a shorter, but wider road user. However, if you ride single file, then you are half as wide, but twice as long, and as Rule 162 states that a driver must give us the same amount of room as they would a car (and to be fair, most do), then in single file we are more difficult to overtake, as the driver need more distance.
What they really mean is; 'you shouldn't be riding that thing on MY road'.
Rant over, and breathe two...three....four......
